DANGEROUS TIMES FOR THE DEAD - Father Time (digital single) released today!

DANGEROUS TIMES FOR THE DEAD is a Dutch Heavy Metal band that sounds they have been transported straight out of the 80's; a hard & heavy, classic but fresh sound, truly makes them a part of the New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal. Full of energy, entertaining and powerful, epic guitar solos, thumping bass and drums and a singer who cuts through all this violence with true heavy metal, high-pitched vocals. What makes them stand apart is their unique, fresh and modern-day approach, both in sound and online presence. Their goal is to passionately blast out traditional heavy metal and share the fun and joy.

“Metal how I think metal should sound.” - Razende Roeland (Metal DJ)
"If Dee Snider, Glenn Danzig, Steel Panther and Iron Maiden would get together, get high, and record an album, it would sound like DANGEROUS TIMES FOR THE DEAD!" - Sonnenberg Metal (Metal Reviewer)
“The vocals sound like a mix of Paul Merrell from Jaguar and Alan Marsh of Tokyo Blade” - Klankgat Online (Review)
“For fans of classic metal, the fast pace and blistering guitar is a great tribute to the bands who were titans 30 years or so ago” - Damage Reviews
“A potent metal brew with a hooky-ass chorus, some delicious axemanship, and a full-throttle Danzigesque momentum” - Sleeping Village Reviews
“The NWOBHM influences shine through punching along somewhere between Iron Maiden and period Judas Priest” - NWOBHM Blog
"It's so much fun hearing a band with that much passion for that classic sound" - Matt Bacon (Metal Influencer/Marketer) 
This song was originally titled "Victims of Time" and was written in an angry mood, a previous NWOTHM band Bjørn (the singer) was in, was often criticized about not being original and "stuck in the eighties". He felt he was born in the wrong musical era; a victim of time. Right now the song "Father Time" can have so many other interpretations. Are we victims of the time we live in... Curfews and deadlines. Being late for something. Feeling old? Or too young? Or did you get crushed by a giant standing clock falling from the sky?  The music came almost intuitively and by a joined effort, this became the bands biggest project so far, a song where everyone in the band had the opportunity to shine. We tried to explore a darker side end be more experimental and a solo where guitars whirl around each other. It created our longest and more epic song.
"Father Time" is a mean bastard and we all obey his clock as his loyal servants. Just reflect on the past years and how quickly everything changed in life… It’s insane.
“Father Time” is going to be released as single on all digital platforms on September 17th, 2021
