Dance With The Dead and their 2nd EP Send The Signal left me pretty mellow.
'They're Here' is a interesting horror film like feeling introduction that made me picture myself out in the middle of the woods at midnight on the run from a killer monster. Definitely has a Jason and Freddy Kruger movie vibe about it and not going to lie I think its one of the best pieces of the bunch.
'Poison' sort of is like the high intense car chase scene in a 80's horror or sci-fi flick. It has a nice synth and electronic base with occasional guitars brought in for what I think adds a sparkle effect to the track.
'Not Of This Earth' got me feeling as if I was in a spaceship out in the universe traveling at the speed of light in search for extraterrestrial life forms.
'Spacewalk' is a very electronic beat dominate track that eventually opens up to let some guitar and synth in to later shine. This song allows the listeners to feel both in touch with the horror and outer space theme going on.
'Signals' by far is my favorite slice of the EP pie. Its more synth oriented than the other tracks but incorporates the electronic side Dance With The Dead has to offer as well. Oh and can we just take a moment to admire the awesome guitar work that finds its way in towards the end.
'Take Me There' to be honest didn't resonate with me until about half way through but overall it ended up being another good piece. I actually would have put it along with the previous track. It could have been used I think as a breakdown and key change for 'Signals' but nonetheless alone is cool.
'Nightdrive' is the last of 7 songs on this not bad piece of music. It gave the EP a nice and mysterious future hint at what is to possibly come from these guys.
Overall I thought 'Send The Signals' wasn't a bad EP but it definitely didn't match up in my opinion to the bands first piece of work that's for sure.
