Despite hailing from Germany, Deadsoil's metallic yet melodic sound is unmistakably American — just watch an episode of Fuse for the proof. Hard-hitting drumming, hardcore metal riffs, and vocals that alternate between barked verses and singalong choruses have served as a blueprint for success for countless bands since the late '90s, and Deadsoil are certainly purveyors of this style. The quintet's fourth release overall, 2006's Sacrifice, shows the group continuing to hone this approach, although like the majority of their European metal kin, the group's fondness for "tricky bits" shows their love of vintage Iron Maiden.
