Regnārs Breikšs The artwork is an absolute win. If it wasn't for it I wouldn't have found this gloomy, western, soundtrack-quality doom/sludge gem. Thank you for making remarkable music! Favorite track: 02 As One Plows and Breaks up the Earth, so Our Bones Have Been Scattered at the Mouth of the Grave.

Heavy Rock Switzerland Imagine EARTH doing the soundtrack to Franco Nero dragging a coffin through the mud. And guess what? Just as the content of said coffin, KING DEAD will blow you away. Favorite track: 05 God Makes A Lot Of Fucking Promises.

Ersin Tas My comment at heavy planet
An unique approach to sludge
Check this guys out!
"This music creates an image of a post-apocalyptic town where a half-undead sheriff rules without mercy. Until one day, the ruthless undead sheriff confronts an alien outsider in the center of town at a duel where the crowd is watching anxiously while the dusty wind creates whirly sound. Who would win? We don't know. We love the sludgy anticipation though." Favorite track: 05 God Makes A Lot Of Fucking Promises.

King Dead have been conspicuously haunting the Stroudsburg PA area lately. Bass players Will McGrath and Kevin Vanderhoof, recruited New Jersey Transplant Steve Truglio on drums last summer, and have begun to wander around the NEPA/NJ area. Their debut record on the cusp of release, was recorded LIVE in their practice and performance home venue at The Living Room in Stroudsburg by Dave Reiser of ROCK HARD STUDIOS. They definitely have their own sound. Call it sludge,
doom, or what we like to say is spaghetti western doom sludge, it sure doesn't sound like yer typical heavy 3 piece band these days. With virtually no vocals, aside from one song(not on the record) and a whistle solo in another, its all about dynamics and the building tempos. Creepy, dreary, sleepy and melodic riffs layered over deep bottom and pounding drums. A good soundtrack for any lethal injection event.

KING DEAD Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania

King Dead have been haunting Stroudsburg PA for a while and now sh*t is just getting pretty weird. ..
Added a fair amount of synth and bass pedal synth to flavour our weird primarily instrumental blend of spaghetti western doom sludge
