THE DEAD (Australia) – Ritual Executions (Death/Sludge Metal)
Escape from the murky depths of ‘Ritual Executions’ is impossible. Coiling and twisting, the music crawls through the gloom to snare the listener into a hypnotic daze. The abyss is rife with infernal bellows; the raw setting is toxic to the soul; the rhythmic beats call for the mandatory sacrifice. ‘Ritual Executions’ is part death metal, part doom/sludge metal and part obscure art. It is where The Dead come to life.
