DEAD IN THE DIRT Unleashes “No Chain” Via Metal Hammer; Debut LP Out Next Week

As DEAD IN THE DIRT’S scathing debut LP, The Blind Hole, nears release in less than a week via Southern Lord, today, the band discharges one of the album’s most abrasive and violently discordant tracks.

The Blind Hole surges with DITD‘s downtuned, caustic riffs and pummeling blastbeats, and delivers their most morose and tonally oppressive material yet through twenty-two tracks in under twenty-four minutes. Though fueled by crushing distortion, the album boasts incredibly clear production values, recorded at Bricktop Recording Studio with Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos) in Chicago this April, and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, All Pigs Must Die, Baptists, Sleep). The cover was illustrated by Bo Orr as with the band’s Fear EP. Listen to the track “No Chain” via Metal Hammer for further proof that the band can and will crush everything in their path with their devastatingly heavy crust attack.
