DeeExpus is a progressive melodic rock band that hails from the North East of England. The band was formed after guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Andy Ditchfield decided to develop his long time solo project into a working band. He met singer Tony Wright, who had been in a band with Andy when they were both in school.

The initial intention was to form a full band at this point however the two found they worked together so well they set about writing and recording their first album, with a few guest solo performances. Halfway Home was the fruits of their labour and was released to worldwide critical acclaim in May 2008 and got the ball rolling.

Their latest creation called King Of number 33 is already out for about 2 months and i must say that overall I like this album. I love their style and find it brilliant how these guys made their sound work around it, the way they build up their songs. However I'm not a big fan of the sound of the vocals witch for some reason don't sound too pleasant.

72/100
