If you follow rock closely, you probably already know something about The Dead Daisies, a modern supergroup comprised of Deen Castronovo, Doug Aldrich, David Lowy and Glenn Hughes, each of whom carry plenty of star power on their own. In the past few years, The Dead Daisies have been steadily building up a following with fans around the world, and not because of their past endeavors as individuals alone. Their latest single “Unspoken” is a furious stab into the future of rock as seen through the lens of a vintage metallic style that we need now more than ever before.
As always, the thunder of the guitars is the main star of the show in this new cut from The Dead Daisies, but it should be said that Hughes’ vocal colorizes the riffing in a way no other voice could have. His singing clings to the guitar parts like saran wrap, but instead of sounding too slick when juxtaposed with the other elements in the song, the abrasive edge in the EQ prevents anything here from translating as inorganic. This is gold-standard producing if I’ve ever heard it before, and I seriously doubt I’m the only critic to have notice cosmetic quality of “Unspoken” in general.

Anyone who enjoys hard rock is going to dig the chemistry that exists between the guys in The Dead Daisies, and in this single, I think their artistic kinship is demonstrated rather magnificently. You can literally hear the history of rock flowing through the veins of the rhythm in “Unspoken,” and though I don’t think its creators are changing the world as we know it with this release, they’re certainly not adhering to the status quo by any means. The Dead Daisies – in more ways than one – are history; hence, this song already feels like a classic.
If “Unspoken” is just a preview of what this band has still got in store for listeners in the years to come, their odyssey is nowhere near complete. In this track and its lyric video, The Dead Daisies put on a rock n’ roll clinic like no one else can, but rather than sounding like a throwback to the past, this release feels like a glimpse into the future. There hasn’t been a lot of guitar-oriented music worth getting really excited about in the last couple of years, but with this group doing what they do best, that’s going to change sooner than later.
