I got the privilege to be asked to do a little review of old school heavy metal titans Deadline’s
new and upcoming album “Cathedral Point”. So here goes

The ominous intro already grabbed my attention, very eerie and left you wondering what the hell
is happening here, but do not be fooled! It flows into the first song “Hope ‘n Pray” perfectly and I
was blown away and definitely awake!! Now sitting straight up at my pc, the excitement for this
new album has definitely taken over. Goosebumps soon follow as they smoothe into the next
few songs, and it is not from the cold weather.

One song that definitely stands out so far is “Before I Die”, which will be released tomorrow 19
June 2020 on all streaming platforms as well as the lyric video on the Deadline Youtube
channel: https://tinyurl.com/before-i-die-video. This song is energetic as fuck and I can already feel
the intensity and power this will bring at future live shows!!

The rest of the album does not disappoint at all, check out “Shapeshifter” too, it brings
something different to the old school heavy metal table. Honestly I cannot say anything negative
about this album, even if I wanted to, which I don’t by the way.
