Indian record label Diabolical Conquest Records recently announced Brisbane death metallers The Dead as the first band to sign to the new company.
"Diabolical Conquest Records is pleased to sign The Dead from Brisbane, Australia. Incorporating influences from genres such as doom metal to make their music gloomier and groovier and yet retaining the death metal aesthetic and underground essence, The Dead play in a unique, perverse style of raw and catchy death metal that transcends schools and trends. After releasing their debut full length album through the Australian Obsidian Records, DC Records will be re-releasing their latest full length album ‘Ritual Executions’, which was originally self-released by the band and limited to 100 copies, in much higher quantities. This release will have a modified artwork by Mike Yee and has been mixed and remastered by Aphotic Mote (Portal)."
Diabolical Conquest founder Kunal N. Choksi comments, "I am extremely happy to sign what I feel is one of the best and most original sounding death metal bands today. After promoting The Dead for years, reviewing three of their releases in detail (with the last two finding a place in my best albums of the year lists) and even conducting an interview with them, it was as if I was destined to sign them; no other band seemed worthier. It is an honour to work with a band I have known and admired for so long and I hope to give them the exposure they truly deserve."
The Dead drummer Chris Morse adds, "It is an honour to be entrusted with DC Records’ first release. DC Webzine has always been known for its honest and insightful reviews of underground metal releases and this will no doubt be reflected in the quality of music the label will release. It’s a very exciting time for the band and we cannot express how jubilant we feel at being added to the DC Records roster."
"Ritual Executions" will be released on June 28, 2010. The complete tracklisting is as follows:
