Dead By Sunrise – Out Of Ashes Review

Dead By Sunrise - Out Of Ashes

The side project of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, Dead By Sunrise mix rock with electro on their debut album, Out Of Ashes.

The album opens with lacklustre track Fire, but is followed by album highlight Crawl Back In. This pattern continues throughout the album, the tracks are either fantastic, fist pumping anthems, such as Inside Of Me and My Suffering, or pathetic boring tripe, such as Let Down or In The Darkness.

There are definitely people who this album will appeal to, but in my opinion, as a whole it’s pretty average. It opens and closes very badly, but there are a few gems hidden inside. It’s worth buying if you see it cheap, but other wise, I’d just download Crawl Back In, My Suffering, Inside Of Me and Condemned.

6.5/10

Highlights: Crawl Back In, My Suffering, Inside Of Me, Condemned
