Sunflower Dead - It's Time to Get Weird

Are you ready to dance with death? Sunflower Dead vocalist Michael Del Pizzo poses that question at the beginning of "Dance With Death" and fans will quickly shout "yes!" as there's nothing too ominous about the song which is a bouncy and melodic, metal-tinged rocker with a vocal hook that demands a sing-along. This album has been bubbling under since its release a few months ago and it's easy to hear why it has moved to the forefront now; word is getting around about the serious guitar grind of "My Mother Mortis," the funky nu metal of the, well, incendiary cut "I'll Burn It" and the impressive musicianship of the prog metal-leaning "Anthem of the Seeds." Members of the band wear evil clown make-up in concert and in their videos so an album title like It's Time to Get Weird is very fitting, but the guys prove right here that there's no fooling around when it comes down to laying down the riffs. Even Jonathan Davis of Korn is a fan; he guest's on the effort's title track
