Loitered Lens: Death Letters

Dutch band Death Letters are a mere two piece, although if you closed your eyes you would never know it.

The extremely accomplished guitar and percussion work that flowed from the stage, at a rammed to the rafters  Borderline show, gave the impression of a much larger outfit. .
Most surprisingly, Death Letters  have the ability to take the tempo from a hard thrash (which was expected) to a gentle and almost jazzy feel (which was not). They toy with these changes through their set, at times becoming seemingly lost in that jazzy vibe before letting rip and slipping back in to a full tilt thrash.
A weird but extremely welcome mix that had the audience hooked, leaving a feeling of “Fuck yeah”.
