Yet another fantastic album of last year that had managed to escape my radar has been given to me by the head of the PR company Transcending Obscurity! “Deathsteps to Oblivion” is (as it sounds) a hardcore death metal album that also has black, sludge, and doom metal thrown into the mix to complete an absolute Goliath-like album. I can say for an absolute fact that this was my favorite sludge metal album of last year. I’d say the same for the other genres but other albums still hold the top spots for each other, but I digress. The Dead have created a unique album that doesn’t follow the blueprints of any bands before them but instead go back to the original drawing board to make their own blueprints their way that’s made just for and only for them. “Deathsteps to Oblivion” is by all means the start of what is no doubt to be a reign of the ultimate hardcore metal albums that the underground metal community has seen for a good long while. And this band is from goddamn motherfucking Austrailia!! Best. Fucking. Country. EVER (for music, in my opinion)!
