On November 2nd 2018 gothic post-metal band Dead Register will release their new EP Captive. The release is the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed 2016 album Fiber.
Dead Register can be described as The Cure covering Neurosis. Or Peter Murphy covering Swans. Or Bauhaus covering Type O Negative.Or Dead Can Dance covering Isis. Many sentence fragments. Or none of the above. Melodic gloomy blackened cvlt gaze. Complements 80’s new wave to 2000’s black metal.
Dead Register’s signature dual-bass sonic proclamation has been described as “crushing waves of despair,” “unforgettable and haunting,”and “an emotion-evoking wall of sonic sadness.” Their crushing yet accessible sound has paired well as live support for Author & Punisher, Wovenhand, Agalloch, Pinkish Black, Vowws, Tombs, Alcest, Order of the Owl, Pleasures, Wolvhammer, King Dude, Set and Setting, Hexxus, The Body, SubRosa, & many more.
Captive will be released on November 2nd through AVR Records. Listen to the title track here:
