Palehorse''s Amongst The Flock, is a new page for Dead Serious. Bands have fused hardcore and metal before, but Palehorse adds a new dimension to the sounds that have made Hatebreed and Integrity cornerstones within the hardcore world. After the release of the EP ''Secrets Within Secrets,'' Palehorse received acclaim for their lyrical content, dark poetic references, and a musical style that showed room to grow. Of course, Palehorse broadened their horizons and challenged their own songwriting abilities.
Now, Palehorse is taking the groundwork laid and mixing it with the discordant melodies from modern influences like Tragedy and His Hero Is Gone and the intricate guitar work that is not far off from ''80s thrash metal like Exodus, Anthrax, or Nuclear Assault. Combine this broad range of influences with the drumming of Joe Longobardi, the raspy vocals and lyrics touching on everything from religion and politics to personal struggle by Vinny Calandra, and you have a record that is going to surprise everyone who hears it. Production from Jim Siegel (Dropkick Murphys, Blood For Blood) makes every note and hit sound loud and full, giving us a record that is modern crossover at its best and heaviest." - from the label.
