CD Review: The Hollywood Undead Are Paying A Visit To Celebrate The "Day Of The Dead"

Los Angles rap/rockers the Hollywood Undead are invading the east coast with their live shows in support of their soon to be released fourth album "Day Of The Dead." The new album will be released on March 31st, through Interscope Records and their latest tour kicked off on March 9th with a show in Philadelphia and continues with shows in New York, New Haven and Baltimore this weekend before heading west. The band's last album peaked at #2 on the Billboard album charts and this latest release looks to duplicate that success.
 
The new regular twelve song album begins with the amazingly addictive opener, "Usual Suspects" as it easily draws comparisons to fellow rap/metal band Linkin Park. They get edgier with the lyrics of "How We Roll" as the beats just bang through your speakers. The album's first single, "Day Of The Dead" was released in October of last year and is the perfect introduction to the album with its shout along chorus and powerful, quick rap lyrics. Their sound gets a little funkier with the hip-hop vibe of "Dark Places," then picks up tempo with the uplifting, metal appeal of "Gravity." The album finishes up with the big arena sweeping rhythm of "Disease" and hard rock groove of "Save Me." A deluxe edition of the album includes three more bonus tracks and also iTunes and Best Buy add on some more songs to keep the music going over 60 minutes.
