Review by The Pit Master

I was pretty jacked up to see that Sunflower Dead was on the road again and even more so when I learned that they were going to make a stop in Lincoln. Why? This is a band that I have not seen in quite a long time (at least 6 years). They were slightly different than I remember them as the make-up is gone. But, that is the only significant difference. Still powerful and entertaining, Sunflower Dead has not missed a step musically.

The first time I saw them they were touring to support their first record, It’s Time to Get Weird. Just one  record set the tone to me being a fan. The makeup didn’t hurt that decision because I thought it was pretty cool. The music had me hooked.

Jump ahead to the most recent show. I talked to Sunflower Dead vocalist, Mike Del Pizzo, and they are now on their third record, C O M A. I bought it on CD (as everyone on the planet should by CDs) and some merch (again, as everyone should). About half of  their set were songs from C O M A, which is cool. I think it is good business that bands play the songs that are on the new record so we may be able to recognize them again.

Speaking of COMA, I did give it a couple of solid listens, it is a good record. Mike’s voice is really strong and Jaboo has some killer riffs and solos. I recommend that everyone make CD purchase of this record. Check out the video of Victim by Sunflower Dead:
