The fourth and final chapter of DEAD’s trilogy features the band in collaboration with Vern Avola aka EMS – underground synth wizard from Portland, Oregon.
EMS is a sometimes touring partner of DEAD and the band consider her to be an exceptionally talented and inspiring individual. One single piece takes up an entire side of Vinyl in what might be described as the soundtrack to a slow, brooding nightmare. As with “We Won’t Let you Sleep” this record was made with Toshi Kasai at Sound of Sirens.
Melbourne cult power trio Wicked City take care of side two with three explosive punk rock bangers. DEAD have admired Wicked City’s unique and uncompromising contribution to progressive punk rock for many years and working with them on this is no small honour. Unpopularity Contest available here.
