In the steady campaign surrounding DREADLORDS‘ Death Angel debut LP, released at the end of last year via Not Just Religious Music, the collective has issued a new video for their smoldering rendition of The Doors’ “Five To One” through Cvlt Nation.
The classic original 1968 tune comes ripping back to live through the creepy, gritty DREADLORDS style, rife with riotous angst in the band’s ominous blues delivery. Meshing civil unrest film from the era of the original song with original footage, the write-up accompanying the premiere issues, “With all of the injustices happening around the world right now, and police brutality rampant in our own backyard, this new DREADLORDS cover of The Doors song ‘Five To One’ is extra powerful. The band’s performance of this classic song is fucking UNREAL. Hold on, it gets better – Samantha Viola of the DREADLORDS has created moving visuals to go along with this tune, and CVLT Nation has been given the honor of premiering this video…”
Rise against injustice or simply riot out of spite to DREADLORDS’ ripping cover of “Five To One” at THIS LOCATION.

Containing members of Panther Modern and T.O.M.B., DREADLORDS boasts a cruel brew of organic traditional blues and crushingly dark Americana, which is intermittently infused with the slight presence of psychedelic black metal and noise experimentation. On Death Angel, the somewhat elusive sect releases thirty-eight minutes of bizarre and unique blues-based odes to Lucifer in the same wayward path as their previously released recordings carried to more explorative depths of the darkest realms of blues-based rock and roll. Recorded during the Winter of January 2013 at Satan’s Palace Recording Studios, Cherry Hill, New Jersey, the album features Panther Modern on banjo, Samantha Viola on drums, bells and ritual implements, and J. Gannon on vocals, with guest vocals on the title track by Susan Bones. Death Angel was released in December via Not Just Religious Music, on LP limited to 500 copies, with 200 on black and 300 on random colors, each including a download code, and digital formats.
