History & Biography
R.U.DEAD? - ...COMPLETELY DEAD. - MAJESTIC UNION
Any underground maven worth his salt knows R.U. Dead? is a dead and
band from southern Germany which kicked around the underground for most
the nineties. The album at hand is essentially Majestic Union's tribute
the band comprising demo, vinyl and MCD material from the act. Covering
music composed over the span of a decade, ...Completely Dead is
uneven. The closest comparison is probably Deceased or Terrible
Certainty-era Kreator with the Germans combing a purée of death, thrash
doom into something sufficiently their own. Several very good riffs
next to weaker moments, yet the ambience is clearly subterranean
Chalk me down as an ambivalent one: metal historians and underground
might be interested; the average casual metal fan though can disregard.
the way, great play on words in the title!
