Album Review

Making its Epitaph debut with Day of the Death, Death By Stereo defines another fierce disposition with its own hardcore punk. The SoCal snobbery of fisted anthems and juggernaut mosh pits acted out by other punk revivalists paved the way for Death By Stereo, and the intensity found on Day of the Death is a bit mimicking.

Death By Stereo's Day of the Death plainly plays into the effect.
