Weekend Listening: Dead Heat - To The Core

YouTube | Spotify
I grew up in California and I can tell you this that when one drives from southern California up into Oxnard you realize that you have entered a different ... land. It's just different from most places in southern California. Yet, apparently it is able to resurrect the best of 80's metal and hardcore. Dead Heat sounds straight out of that era and the artwork on their releases and merch matches. Incredible!
