Rather than simply calling their new album “IV”, Billy Talent took the time to actually come up with a title for this one. And listening to “Dead Silence” it seems they took the time for everything this time around.
“Lonely Road To Absolution” is a worthy intro that is immediately followed by one of the biggest hits on the album, “Viking Death March”. It’s a good summation of the album… energetic as fuck, catchy and the harmonies sound great while you’re banging your head.
There is not a single song on this album that doesn’t belong in the tracklisting. Call it harmonised destruction if you will… fact is that Billy Talent upped the ante and came out with an album that will have crowds going nuts in no time.
