Brisbane death / doom 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.

The overall sound of the record is steady and neat despite being aggressive, thus asserting the magnificence of sludge metal. The sludgy riffs aren't unnecessarily catchy, but are definitely memorable! The extraordinary bass tone, basslines and exotic leads add to the heap of original aspects in the album. Most of the music is neat and basic with a dash of experimenting at just the right places! The production is spectacular and puts to the forefront the dark, melancholic feel and unconventional elements like the basslines which are the driving forces at numerous places in the record besides maintaining the raw, dirty essence of the music. - 5/5
