Biography

We've longed for the day when LA-via- DC translants DEAD MEADOW would drop a studio album that matched the power of one of the best shows on the planet. With 'Old Growth' the firm of Simon, Kille and McCarty have delivered a remarkably clear, powerful and confident recording that should ele- vate the trio into the pantheon of the great guitar bands of our time. Recorded at Sunset ... Read more in Amazon's Dead Meadow Store

5.0 out of 5 stars doing drugs to make music to do drugs to September 21, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Dead Meadow bring it down like lightning from the sky to awaken the sleeping giant. this is the sh#t kids. throw away those cry baby live journal lyric emo band records and start listening to some WIZARD ROCK. Sabbath, Zeppelin, Blue Cheer, Hawkwind, etc... let's just say it's heavy in a good way. like an oak tree falling on your ass and crushing your will to live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy sh#? February 5, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is really good. it's great that band from DC is actually doing something different and thinking for themselves. It's a shame that that Fugazi fan is so lame. He's probably upset that his benefit at the Wilson Center was cancelled and he ran out of tofu treats. But if you like the spirit of rock and roll and believe that music should actually be fun to listen to, buy this album, it's worth every cent!!!!!

If you ever wanted Black Sabbath to jam with Meddle-era Pink Floyd while listening to My Bloody Valentine's Loveless, then Dead Meadow is for you. Formed in Washington, D.C, these guys make some of the coolest music I've ever heard. They'll have groove-heavy jams like "Sleepy Silver Door" and "Indian Bones," but then they'll have beatiful soundscapes like "Greensky Greenlake," and "Dragonfly." Also, there is a song on here called "At The Edge Of The Wood" which sounds like Neil Young circa-1972. This is some great stuff. Sadly, the first album is out of print, but most of these songs are on the live album, "Got Live If You Want It." You can try ebay for the original, or just get the live album. Good stuff, all around. I look forward to more from this band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slide deep down! June 24, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Aren't you sick of the awful, modern likes of Limp Bizkit, Eminem and other such toilet rock? Open yourself up to a whole new thing. This record is one of the top 10 rock albums of the modern generation. A pure injection of psychedelic, 70's style rock. All I have to say is "finally". If you haven't heard of them, you will soon, as they are about to invade your pleasure zone.

4.0 out of 5 stars so damn good April 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
4.5 stars
So, yeah, the vocals are mixed below the music, which sounds like it was recorded in a foggy basement somewhere (which it basically was). Who cares? For one thing, the vocals are not meant to be the focal point, and for another thing, the somewhat muffled-sounding music works perfectly to convey the mystical ramblings of the lyrics and the drugged-out vibe of the tunes. The music itself may not be pristinely produced, but it works. And anyway, I can understand the vocals to Indian Bones just fine without the lyric sheet.

My ears loved Indian Bones from the moment the instrumental break commenced, spiraled to a Floyd/Zeppelin crescendo then slid back down to that grimy blues riff. Just marvelous. The same can be said for Lady, in which a marvelous two-note riff perfectly encapsulates the preceding lyrics "as failing night/gives way to glorious day/our eyes adjust/to the sun's bright rays," and Sleepy Silver Door.

Not every song hits with the same magnitude of the aforementioned triumverate, but the band clearly and adroitly plants the seeds that would bloom in full on Shivering King and Feathers. This album was also recently reissued, so no more paying the price gougers here, which is just another reason why you have no excuse for not owning this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Debut: potential greatness, limited studio budget? August 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I rank this a star lower than others have since on this debut, the instrumentation works, but the vocals are mixed too far below the music, and sound at their most poorly-recorded portions here like a pre-pubescent boy doing a R. Plant imitation. Not to be harsh, but this disc's best songs are heard to more mesmerizing effect on the "Got Live If You Want It" a couple of years later.

The DC trio here's working out its take on its influences. The comments here accurately sum up their music's elements, and if (as I do) you like Kyuss more than Queens of the Stone Age, DM is your band. Like Kyuss, they grow in confidence and vary their melodic and arranging abilities on albums to come after their debut, which like DM's I gather was taped for very little money. Not that this in itself is bad, given the Fugazi-connection that this and "Howls" had being issued on that band's spinoff label, but for music this intense, a thicker cushion of sound's needed than for Fugazi, who thrive on a dryer, more spare sonic stance.

This is now out-of-print (as is "Howls"). I spent a lot to get this debut, but only after I had heard their later records, and I recommend that potential fans listen to DM's more recent offerings first before hunting these two early artifacts. This is a solid disc, nonetheless, and stretches out wonderfully when it leaves behind the vocal passages to soar and roam.

Dead Meadows self titled debut is a perfectly recorded foray into heavy psychedelic rock. it rocks. The album has a native american, medeival dungeons and dragons concept.
keeps the spirit of black sabbath and blue cheer alive
