BORN follows-up the engaging mini-album BLACK BORN MARKET with the single BLACK DEAD MUZIC. Neither of the two tracks involved are entitled BLACK DEAD MUZIC. However both are rowdy enough to wake up, well, the dead who else.
The first track, Karasu, has a very nice hook. The song is definitely bouncy, as if it has an intrinsic pacer that cues listeners to headbang. Karasu also has high sing-along factor, especially during the member shoutout portions. Screaming aside, Karasu is reminiscent of the BORN’s earlier song, MY SWEET BLACK.
BUZZ though takes the cake for being the best song in BLACK DEAD MUZIC. An all-out track highlighted with lots of growling and awesome drumming, BUZZ is lightning in a bottle. It is rowdy. It is energetic. It is one heck of a joyride.
Net, though not necessarily outstanding, BLACK DEAD MUZIC rocks. Play it while out on a road trip with friends and watch the speed meter go up, up and away.
