O’Death – Outside

Let’s be honest here, on previous releases O’Death was kind of a sloppy band and sometimes even downright clownesque. That has changed though on their fourth album, “Outside”. The songs are more concise and the tempo has been brought down. Does it have anything to do with the fact that drummer David Rogers-Berry was diagnosed with cancer two years and has fought quite the battle to survive? Could be.

Whatever the reason, the result is an album that’s better than anything they’ve released in the past. You can still call it gothic country (think Murder By Death) but they use their fiddle, ukulele and banjo to head for the Balkan just the same.

You might find it a shame that you have to leave your dancing shoes in the closet this time around, but you do get a more thoughtful album that kicks it precessors’ ass in every way possible.
Score: 7 out of 10
