Dissident Prophet – Weapons of Mass Deception

Weapons of Mass DeceptionThe Dissident Prophets (aka The Maccabees) are back! The Prophets were more active in the late 1990s/early 2000s before disappearing for a while. I often hear them compared to L.S. Underground. While that is an influence or comparison, there is really a different vibe to DP that is not as dark as LSU. Which is not a bad thing, just something different. “Fire, Fire” is a driving song with slight influences from later day The Cult. “Running On The Wheel” is a groovin’ song with a heavy 80s feel. “Time O’ The Signs” has a distinct 90s alternative mood to it, followed by the rollicking acoustic ditty “Be Serious” that will have you whistling along with it. But it’s not all older influences. “The Man Behind The Curtain” sounds like it could fit in with current garage rock bands that you hear on many commercials. Yet they manage to bring it all together into a cohesive sound that is still all Dissident Prophet. You can currently get this for free at their BandCamp site, so be sure to snap it up before some label grabs it.
