What is enterentertainment Tonight?

So far we’ve seen shocking returns throughout the year, with names like Blue Oyster Cult, Raging Speedhorn, Pearl Jam, Attack Attack, and others miraculously reappearing on the scene. But, the return of Stab to the west may be the biggest shock of all, as this EP arrives 19 years after their last studio album. Stabbing Westward is hoping that this new material will make up for lost time and spark some interest in their next album in the process.

From the start, it becomes evident that the group has not lost any of its industrial influences. The title song is a fresh sounding song tinged with electronic conventions. Hard rock notes add the finishing touch to this distinct and enjoyable number. More disturbing vibrations are demonstrated by the Gary Numan atmosphere of Cold. The catchy and infectious chorus guides the song with its punchy earworm and upbeat tempo.

More abstract and almost haunting conventions are evidenced by the slower pace of Crawl. The shift in focus here broadens the horizons of EP and makes it more widely accessible to fans. A handful of remixes wrap up this brief release in an unusual way, but they take nothing of the overall EP standard.

In all, Dead and buried is a worthy EP that confidently announces the return of these industrial rock figures of the 90s. Wasteland is sure to be a good album if it replicates the positivity featured here.
