Dead Coyote – Apparitionata Album Review

Today we are featuring a promising musical project/band, Dead Coyote, from Portland, the USA. We have reviewed their new album, APPARITIONATA, along with its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Dead Coyote is a promising musical/horror rock project/band I discovered a month ago with their new release, Apparitionata, released on February 13, 2021. The band has started their careers with a long-play album called, Feed the Raven in 2019. Since then, Dead Coyote released one more long-play album, Apparitionata (2021). Now, please give the album a listen while reading the rest of the article.

Dead Coyote is truly one of the most impressive acts I have seen for a long time. As you might also remember from some of my previous articles, I listen to tons of new music from new bands from all around the world every single day. I am aware of what is happening in the independent music scene, the trends, successful examples, etc. In time, you realize that you developed a skill, a filter that separates true potential from others. In Dead Coyote’s case, I was pretty hopeless when I first saw their visuals and social media. I read about them, listened to the entire Apparitionata album, and my opinion about the band didn’t change until I watched the performance they filmed for their musical. Everything you are about to read here might not make sense if you haven’t watched the video, so please watch it!

First of all, I am blown away by the artistic vision of Dead Coyote. They indeed have done an incredible job here on this album, Apparitionata. I am an artist myself, and I can imagine the amount of work done here for this project. When I finished watching the entire musical, I just asked myself, how many people that I know could possibly do such a thing? I am not even counting the creating part, just doing. And to be honest with you, nobody.

The album has so many inputs and influences from the 90s. Briefly, this is a stunning performance, an impressive blend of comedy and horror, immediately reminded me of the Beetlejuice, and the iconic main character of Michael Keaton. I watched this movie when I was a kid and still remember his performance even today. In Dead Coyote’s example, I am quite impressed by Zach Retzl. I don’t think Zach wants to be successful in a musical or performing sphere, he was born as an artist. This is like the difference between Alice Cooper and the rest of the world, if you know what I mean.

When it comes to Apparitionata’s musicality, I have had a good time listening to the entire record a few times. As some of you might know, I am mainly into innovative ideas and blends, especially with heavy instrumentation. Apparitionata has reminded me of QueenIced Earth, and Phantom of the Opera with its musicality. There’s nothing negative I can mention. For some reason, I don’t want to go into so many details about its musical side, mostly because of the amount of work the band has done. It is truly incredible. This isn’t just writing a song and filming a music video if you think about it; this is simply making a statement. Tons of creativity, artistic vision, layers, stories, ideas, details, and so on. Dead Coyote earned our respect with their remarkable job, genuinely fantastic.


The weak side of the project is, unfortunately, one of its pillars, the production quality. I have thought about this for some time, and I am aware of everything they have done in this project. First of all, I have massive respect for their hard work, above everything else. I am sure putting together such a project took months, if not years. However, I must also admit that the sound quality of their music is below average, especially in our modern era, in 2021.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am blown away by Dead Coyote. Apparitionata is good enough to give us a hint from their true potentials, to be fair. It is a great album, and it can become the beginning of something extraordinary in its niche.
