Dr. Living Dead
Alcatraz Line up: 2017
In the nordics and Germany ‘The Doc' is a well-known name, however over here in our region the masked crossover thrashers generally evoked nothing more than a “Oh yes, that name rings a bell..?”, though that is soon to be changed forever! These Swedes live by the fine art of old school crossover thrash with ultra-fast and aggressive songs and riffs, inspired by D.R.I., S.O.D. and Suicidal Tendencies, but are also heavily influenced by the ‘Big Four’ with razor sharp riffs by the likes of Exodus and Anthrax. Image wise Dr. Living Dead look like a resurrected version of Suicidal Tendencies that have just risen from their graves. Wearing skull masks, bandanas and basketball jerseys. Lyrically they go as far as writing songs about radioactive apocalypses, world wars, and world improvement preaching. A very unique skull crushing, one of kind act, on stage at Alcatraz 2017!
