Dead Branches is a Hard Rock/Sludge/Stoner Rock Band from Welland, Ontario, Canda

The members are;

Josh Shoemaker
Shawn Allison

Dead Branches are a fucking top-notch Instrumental Hard-Rock/Sludge/Stoner Metal influenced by Thin Lizzy, Baroness and Mastodon. 

Shawn contacted me about his great new band as he is part of another great Sludge Metal band Sorceress who I featured last year.

Well Dead Branches is a hard-rocking kick-ass rock band and of the best instrumental rock bands I have had the pleasure to hear this year. Especially when influenced by three of my fave bands - Baroness, Thin Lizzy and Mastodon.

This feels like a supergroup jamming session of those great bands. It incorporates the hard-rocking riffs that Thin Lizzy made famous along with the Prog Sludge Riffs that Mastodon/Baroness bring. And it's a great blast that will have you hooked in no time at all.

Dead Branches have 3 songs available for Free Download from their BandCamp page but all individual. The tracks - "Sunken Eyes, Broken Teeth", "Jump Into The Well" and "Lung Wings" show what a great band Dead Branches are actually are.

If this is the start of Dead Branches I can't wait to hear what they sound like on a proper demo, EP or full length in the near future.

It's staggering that this is a two man band as it sounds like a four man band. They have so much power for a two man band.

All I can say is WOW and FUCKING WOW again. Head over to BandCamp and check out a great band with hopefully a bright future ahead of them.

What you get is about 13 mins of amazing hard-rocking Sludge/Stoner Metal vibes that will brighten up any day and leave a big smile on your face. Brilliant.

Great Work Guys. Count me as a fan now. Highly Recommended.
