"Let's see what this nice fellow had to say about it: ...this Canadian 4 piece rock out 6 tracks over this EP of dark, grooving hardcore that bounces between bar stools inhabited by the likes of Shotmaker, Hoover and Policy of 3. It's a riotous assault of blistering guitar, strong bass and urgent vocals that move from sung to bellowed without so much as the raising of an eyebrow... Apparently these folks do have a pedigree of being connected to Sparkmarker, which is not something I am qualified to comment on, so I will stick to making remarks about the excellence of the jagged emotive hardcore attack that they crank out to great effect. Deadsure prove adept at swaying into rhythmic grooves that are powered by abrasive guitar and booming bass, before exploding out into the pounding screamed sections. Fortune is a great track on here that has an under-stated twinky song with kind of sung/spoken vocals, totally reminiscent of Po3... you probably haven't heard many bands do this kind of style better since the Dead Dog Summer LP." – Andy Malcolm, www.collective-zine.co.uk
