THE DEAD (Australia) – Deathsteps to Oblivion (Death/Sludge Metal)
The Dead return with a doom/sludge-oriented death metal album that will shatter notions about the genre. Transcending multiple avatars, The Dead shape-shift their way across epic songs that are as crushing as they are memorable. Leads light up ‘Deathsteps to Oblivion’ through the quagmire of darkness, death and doom. This is bound to be a landmark album across many genres for the originality and the boldness it offers. The riffs remain as haunting as ever, surpassing the highly acclaimed previous album ‘Ritual Executions’ which is now completely sold out. The Dead unleash their masterpiece.
