Dead Register Posts "Grave" Video

In celebration of the death of summer, Atlanta-based doom/goth band Dead Register releases the chilling new "Grave" video.

The clip was conceptualized by band member Avril Che and encompasses elements drawn from horror movies, video games, and heavy metal. "Grave" was originally released on the "Fiber" album.

Avril also comments on the video: "'Grave' tips its hat to Silent Hill with unsettling imagery and a bleak analysis of nihilistic duality. In a lonely ambiguous plane of existence, the heroine explores a world of mysterious and elusive apparitions, leading her through doorways that reveal symbolic manifestations of her consciousness."

Dead Register Streaming "Alone"

Gothic-tinged doom rockers Dead Register just revealed a new track titled "Alone." The song, which is taken from new album "Fiber," is an epic nine-minute track reminiscent of bands such as Type O Negative, Soundgarden and Pinkish Black. The track was previously released in a demo version.

Vocalist M. Chvasta commented "The demo version of Alone seemed to resonate with a great number of our listeners. We’ve had some direct requests, rather DEMANDS, that we include this tune on our first album… So, since we have the capacity to exercise kindness, we did."

If you missed it, Dead Register also recently gave us a very interesting pit story about crowd surf fingering... and the avoidance thereof. Check it out here. More...

Pit Stories: Crowd Surf Fingering

Time for a new Pit Story! After hearing about good karma with a travelling bottle of Jack Daniels and a tale of a missing yet indestructible guitar, this week we hear about a bevy of entertaining live shows from Atlanta outfit Dead Register.

We usually get some odd tales told in offbeat ways, but sometimes, these tales from musicians just absolutely sing with poetic wonder. This is one of those times.

Vocalist M. Chvasta of Dead Register today offers up an awe-inspiring retelling of a string of Jesus Lizard shows, in which girl bits both were and were not fingered, and penis both was and was not seen. He tells the story like this:

One time in the 90’s, I went to a Jesus Lizard show. Some band that sounded like Jesus Lizard opened. Two for one.

One time in the 90’s, I went to a Jesus Lizard show. Some whorish girl wearing super-short shorts wanted tons of attention from men. She would NOT stop crowd surfing, which was totally annoying (like most crowd surfers). She did not have underwear on. Dudes were fingering her girly-bits as she crowd surfed, to her delight. I think I saw Dave Yow’s dick, too.

One time in the 2000’s, I went to a Jesus Lizard reunion show in Nashville. Their tour shirt design was a bag of money, perfectly fitting. My then friend, but now wife and bandmate went with me. We moshed like champions, like it was in the 90’s. She did not crowd surf, nor did she get fingered. I ran into Larry from Pegboy who is a fine gentleman and a wonderful heartfelt singer. Pegboy did not open this show. Pegboy does not sound like Jesus Lizard.

One time in the 2000’s, I went to another Jesus Lizard reunion show in Atlanta. I wore an orange flannel shirt. Like it was the 90’s. Except I did not see Dave Yow’s dick.

Jesus Lizard and Pegboy are not metal.

Fuck crowd surfers.

We appreciate the clarification at the end there Chvasta! Dead Register will release new album "Fiber" on May 7th and two tracks off the release can be heard below. For more info on the band, head over to the Dead Register Facebook profile. More...

Dead Register Streams New Track

After we premiered a music video for the "Fiber" track, Gothic-tinged doom band Dead Register has revealed new track "Drawing Down."

The track, which is taken from upcoming album "Fiber." is a somber 8-minute song for fans of Pinkish Black, Woods of Ypres and The Cure. You can also pre-order "Fiber" on digital/CD or cassette formats here.

Vocalist M. Chvasta commented: "The lyrics for this song are fairly face-value. They explore the sentiment of being literally close to someone but hopelessly distant. The chorus is the denouement of the mutual realization … the moment when you gaze into someone’s eyes and ‘all’ becomes undeniably clear." More...

Dead Register Premieres "Fiber" Video

It's a gloomy broken goblets and empty tables kind of day, which is why we're teaming up with Dead Register to exclusively premiere the new "Fiber" video!

This new clip is for the title track off the gothic / doom band's upcoming album of the same name, due to drop May 6th, 2016 via AVR Records. If you dig anything from Neurosis to The Cure or even Pinkish Black, you'll want to check out the killer music video below.

According to Dead Register, the album is "Centered around the dynamics of human relationships, particularly those of love and loss," while further defining the album title as "1. The fine elements woven together in the crafting of compositions. 2. The effects of the bass on the bowels."

The band also comments on this new clip: "'Fiber' highlights live shots of Dead Register playing interwoven with a desperate story of two souls failing to connect and falling back into their own miseries."

For more info on this Atlanta-based outfit, head over to Facebook here. The full "Fiber" track listing will be as follows:

1. Alone
2. Fiber
3. Drawing Down
4. Grave
