Excerpt from CrypticRock.com Review
With new label Standby Records and their new, self-recorded album called Blame it on the Devil, Deadstar Assembly follow their own well-known path once more. The genre tag of Industrial Metal does not quite hit the nail on the head though, as the band’s sound comprises more of a grab-bag featuring many ingredients of the Metal-market garden. While listening to Blame it on the Devil, the listener might experience a number of deja-vu moments, yet they would be hard pressed to try and accused the band of copying other artists. On the other hand it is out of the question to escape some comparisons in order to describe the band’s sound. The album’s opening title-track shows the volatile Industrial vibes which are underlined by the cold and mechanical sounding production and the extremely triggered drums, with nods to Marilyn Manson in both the songwriting aspect, as well as the performance of singer Dearborn. Deadstar Assembly manage to accomplish the feat of mixing their sound with ’80s Metal. Leaving aside the production, programming and sound-gimmicks, the second track “Overdose” reminds one of the early phase of danish Hardrockers Pretty Maids in glory Red, Hot & Heavy (1984) and Future World (1987) times, where especially singer Dearborn sounds almost like Ronnie Atkins – an attribute which comes to mind very often while listening to the nine tracks of Blame It On The Devil. The outro “Devil’s Reprise” picks up the main theme and riff of the aforementioned title-track.
The much anticipated fourth release "Blame It on the Devil" from Deadstar Assembly is out on Tuesday February 24th. Be sure to check out their most dangerous album to date with face melting big hooks and non-stop anthems.

Deadstar Assembly's new album, Blame It On The Devil, comes out on Feburary 24th, 2015. I never thought I would say this in my wildest dreams, but I would liken Deadstar Assembly to a cross between Skillet and Super Bob, and I mean that in a good, amazing way! I was actually working on the website with Blame It On The Devil playing in the background, and I managed to play it 4 times through before I noticed that I kept listening to it! It's just that good.
So it's no secret that I really enjoyed Blame It On The Devil. It's very energetic music but not in an obnixious way at all, it's in a jamming out rocking way, which I love! I particularly enjoyed the song Baptized By Fire, but Filth and Amulet were also very close. This album is so energetic but it has the musical strength and wonderful, meaningful lyrics to back it up. This is a top do not miss album of 2015, right up there with All That Remains' newest, also out today! It's a great day for music this year.
