Death Ray Vision Negative Mental Attitude Colored Vinyl LP
Nearly five years after the release of We Ain't Leavin' Till You're Bleedin', Massachusetts old-school hardcore fashioned, Death Ray Vision have been finalizing their sophomore effort Negative Mental Attitude. Recording will begin in September at Mad Oak Studio, where the band previously recorded their first five-song EP "Get Lost or Get Dead", once again with producer Benny Grotto at the helm.
"It's a playful jab at the hardcore scene, in a way", bassist Mike D'Antonio states about the album title. "There's a lot of people who preach a 'positive mental attitude' and they practice anything but that". The title also succinctly represents the band's current direction which deviates from their previous "go old-school or go home" approach.
"We don't really have a lot of good moods on this one", guitarist Pete Cortese continues, "it's a little more morose, melodic, and to say that it will be 'our finest work to date' would be a little too positive for the angle we're going for". In addition to songwriting, the band also had line-up changes along the way with vocalist Brian Fair and guitarist Zack Wells making their exit due to family and relocation across the country.
Amidst broadening their musical horizons, Death Ray Vision commits to keeping an old-school baseline at it's core. Drummer, Colin Conway adds, "there will always be speed and aggression in our formula, but instead of presenting a 'tough guy' demeanor, we break through that shell and expose the 'tragic hero' within." PRESS: "The quintet nail the sound they're going for, and fans of S.O.D., MUNICIPAL WASTE or NUCLEAR ASSAULT may display demented grins as they make this the soundtrack to windmilling their hair all the way to the chiropractor's office." - Alternative Press
