THE SLOW DEATH - Presents Track From The Upcoming Album

Australian extreme doom five-piece The Slow Death have premiered online a brand new track "Tyranny". The track is taken from the upcoming album entitled Siege, set to be released on the 27th of August via Transcending Obscurity Records. The Slow Death's style is different from the usual death/doom metal fare. Here female vocals are employed to provide a stunning contrast as the music undulates gracefully with the dreamy, doomier passages as well as the faster death metal rumbling.

There are eerie, haunting female vocals alternated with abysmally low growls to go with similarly undulating music, encompassing a terrific range of heart-rending expression. Members of veteran bands such as Stone Wings, Murkrat, Backyard Mortuary, Illimitable Dolor, Horrisonous, ex-Mournful Congregation ensure that the music remains engaging, even during the sparser, atmospheric parts, which invariably give way to soul-piercing solos or dread-inducing chugging parts. This is a staggering interpretation of the double-edged style with everything remaining all too palpable, as it hurtles you through a harrowing, emotional roller-coaster ride through four epochal tracks averaging over 15 minutes, at the end of which you'll emerge cleansed, purged, feeling exhausted but somehow lighter. It's a microcosm of the events that are bound to unfold in everyone's life, and The Slow Death couldn't express the inevitable moments of grief and triumph any better through their emotionally charged music. Six years in the making, Siege is sure to be remembered as one of the best albums in the style. Link
