Deep Treatment: Epicrisis
06/12/10 || revenant
Global Domination would like to apologize as, due to a technical error, the review of Deep Treatment’s demo “Epicrisis” is currently unavailable for viewing. We announce this somewhat regretfully as the author of the article, Revenant, put a lot of thought and humour into the article, the result in which would now be providing you with a lot of entertainment. For example, the band’s name (crap as it is) provided a great source of comedic material, especially when Revenant referred to the band as Deep throat Treatment. KA-BLAM, didn’t see that one coming, did you?
Of course, I don’t want to spoil the review, but there was also an amusing take on the band’s history as well. Check out what they wrote on their MySpace:
“First DT played only well-known covers and had only a few “wedding gigs”. The covers included classics from the bands like Kiss, Deep Purple, HIM and Faith No More. Although we still play covers our focus has shifted to our own material described by some outside observers as “fuckin’ hard”. We let you decide if these commentators are just bullshitting or have found the absolute truth about the music of DT.”
Of course, with a write up like that, you just know they are begging to be arse slammed. Again, I don’t want to ruin the review, but it was amusing when Revenant pointed out that Deep throat Treatment should discontinue asking the opinions of people wearing Nickleback shirts. BAM, he smoked them again.
Ok ok, I’m probably spoiling a lot of the review, so I might as well tell you that the band plays mid paced heavy rock which, while quite heavy in sound, lacks any real hooks. For example, Revenant talked about how, just five minutes after listening to this demo and sitting down to write his review, he found it incredibly hard to recall a single riff or chorus. Sure, it was decent to listen to, but nothing from the record stuck, hence the score (which he have been able to recover) below.
Finally (and this is the last spoiler, I promise), he also mentioned the great production this had for a demo. You know how demos all have shitty production? Not this one, apparently. Well that’s good, I was afraid that he was only going to pour negativity onto this band. After all, it would have been so easy to give the “back to the wedding gigs for you” line, but he didn’t. Actually, he applauded these guys for putting together some of their own compositions setting out to try and actually achieve something rather than sit back making money off wedding gigs. “Good on them” he said (or something like it), “I just hope with their future endeavors they produce something a little more memorable and a lot more hook”.
Again, we do apologies for the unavailability of the review at present.
