    More often than not, this is pop punk as it should be: direct, streamlined and raucous but of enough substance that preachy points are made within nagging, urgent choruses. [Oct 2012, p.93]

    Overall, the sound on Dead Silence isn't that different from the band's previous work, but is certainly some of the best work they've done.

    At times, the record is a grower. Off the bat, the singles sell the release but other numbers require additional listens to click. Having said that, once you hear that click this record is completely blinding.

It has a few standout tracks, notably the title track and the singles 'Viking Death March' and 'Surprise Surprise'. The rest of the tracks on the album are mostly filler and lack any real cohesiveness. Full Review »
