Dead Confederate - "Run From The Gun"


Winter storms are punishingly cold and uncomfortable, but are an important source of water for spring growth. Likewise for Dead Confederate, the series of New Jersey blizzards that besieged the recording of sophomore album Sugar (a reference to the record snowfall) also heralded growth from the darker, somber realm of their critically acclaimed Wrecking Ball. With an evolving approach and ... Read more in Amazon's Dead Confederate Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Yep, this band will be BIG September 23, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I have seen this band live 3 times now. Amazing performance each time. This disc captures some of the raw, magnetic power that is Dead Confederate. No disc will ever do their live show justice.

Track Reviews
1) Heavy Petting (9/10) - A great rocking curtain jerking track to start this album off right.

2) The Rat (10/10) - This is the song that created the DC buzz. A rerecord from the earlier EP version. I like both recordings, but once again, this one does more justice to the live DC sound.

3) Goner (10/10) - DC had the demo for this song on their myspace page for while. This rerecord is better than the demo and this song just plain rocks with a slight southern twang.

4) It Was a Rose (9/10) - Lyrically, a masterpiece. Listen closely and be drawn in.

5) Yer Circus (8/10) - One of the albums low points, but still better than any of the crap you hear on the FM radio.

6) All the Angels (11/10) - Yes, an eleven. The haunting vocal melody in the verses sends chills down my spine.

7) Start Me Laughing (10/10) - Ultimate rock out w/ your cock out song.

8) The News Underneath (8/10) - Another low point, but can you really expect and album full of masterpieces?

9) Flesh Colored Canvas (10/10) - An absolute emotional roller coaster.

10) Wrecking Ball (9/10) - Title track. Metaphors galore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought this record twice November 18, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you can imagine a fusion of the best parts of Nirvana's greatist hits and Pink Floyd's powerful atmospheric sounds then you've got an idea of what Wrecking Ball sounds like. This southern Alt-rock band delivers raw emotion with strong instrumentation in a way that no other group currently on the scene does. Pick this album up now, so you can brag to your friends about how you knew them before they got big.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Refreshing October 24, 2008
By DaveS
Format:Audio CD
It's about time an album like this came out. "The Rat" originally got me into DC, as well as their EP (which I also strongly recommend). In the age of over-commercialized/over-recycled corporate garbage, such a raw and honest band is indeed very refreshing. Reminds of me of the first time I heard Pearl Jam's "Ten". I hope these guys become very successful

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Debut Full Length Album -- Dark and Intense! December 16, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Album is full of great songs from start to finish. Intense, moody, and a tad on the dark and stormy side (I say that in a good way). Lyrics pouring raw emotion. Nice album to listen to from start to finish on a road trip.

I have bought this album 3 times (for myself and as gifts). Will buy it on vinyl too if I ever get a chance.

The drummer on Wrecking Ball is amazing... not sure if they still have the same drummer, as at least one of the live shows I've seen had a "fill-in", who didn't quite bring the same level of intensity.

Recommended if you also like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (Dead Confederate has opened for them in the past). Final note: their live show is definitely worth seeing. I first saw them live (they opened for Heartless Bastards), without ever hearing of them before. In spite of watching them "cold", they were instant favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Distorted Nostalgia!!! January 13, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I found out about these guys at Voodoo Festival in New Orleans, although I missed the show, knowing they would be amazing. They played early and I had a long night...Anyways, I finally bought their album, had to buy online and im loving it. The first two songs off the album knock you in the throat. Love the hard rock of Heavy Petting, and the lyrics from The Rat which describes church life in the South quite well. I cant comment on the rest yet, im still indulging. I will say each song has something to offer, and this album will be around for a long time..Of course we must place Dead Confederate somewhere and draw comparisons from the past. GRUNGE/KURT COBAIN. There I said it, and its a right and wrong comparison. But it still draws from other genres and shouldnt be pegged with having strictly one influence. Pick this up if you havent already...The album rocks. The lyrics has substance. Great song direction. Need I say more?
