In the autumn of 2001 Deep recorded a third album called "more commercial" which is due in 2002.

Reviews

DEEP - PIECES OF NOTHING - PAVEMENT
Who can be sure if the band intentionally placed so much 'purple' on this album's cover? What one can be certain of though is the band's thrashed up heavy metal delivery which regretfully does not aspire to any type of distinction. The band is competitive in its delivery; it's just that it's too middle-of-the-road to make any sort of impact. While the band does mix in several tempos and riffing styles, it often reminds one of bands like Reign, Demented Ted or Dead And Bloated who at one time or other had little fault other than sounding indistinguishable from the competition, merely composing derivative and by-the-numbers songs. As such it is an educated guess that the band's recent trek with King Diamond will remain a career high point. - Ali "The Metallian"
