Gothic post-metal band DEAD REGISTER have returned with their new song “Captive”. The track is taken from their upcoming EP of the same name and will be released this November.
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, and many more.
