DIRTE – Dead Inside

I love the mellow ass intro to this song. There is a gritty, dirty feel to the tune. It’s not a loud over the top rock song. It’s more like a nice mid tempo jam with an excellent rhythm. The vocals are badass. This guy has this edgy vocal style that worms it’s way into your brain. I’m already a big fan of his tone, it’s not really deep it’s kind of a mid range tone. Makes me think of the vocalist from bands like Smile Empty Soul and Puddle of Mudd. The lyrics are well done and have an almost melancholy sound to them. The rest of the players set a beautiful stage for their vocalist. There aren’t any hot dog moments for the guitarist or drummer yet their presence is felt in every second. I can see them playing this song in concert with a sea of lighters, or I guess now cell phones lighting up the venue.


Would I Listen to More of Their Stuff: As slow jams go this one is awesome. I would love to listen to more of their music to see if they have a more upbeat track. I would love to hear them go nuts with a quick tempo straight up rock song. For this song I gotta say it’s pretty flexible as far as what kind of list you could put it on. I would pair them with some Smile, Puddle or some old AIC. As a matter of face there is even some Five Finger Death Punch or Stone Sour that would work well with Dirte’s style on this track.
