And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead – “X: The Godless Void and Other Stories” LP and CD

Twenty five years and ten albums down the line, the multi-talented duo of Conrad Keely and Jason Reece are still raging strong, and still sounding unmistakingly true to their classic template: wild, churning post-hardcore psychedelia with thunderous drums, hooky guitar riffs, over-the-top crescendos and perfectly formed song compositions; a prog-tinged mix of Sonic Youth, Relacements, MC5 and (their peers from back in the day) At The Drive In. After a few albums in recent years that failed to capture my enthusiasm (baring in my mind I’ve always been a huge fan) this is an exciting return to form, far exceeding my expectations, and reviving the Trail Of Dead essence – with sneaky little echoes hidden within the sonic mix – of their past greats, namely Madanna, Source Tags And Codes, and Worlds Apart.
