First night done laying some more drum tracks down for the new ND Album..A different approach than the last record with different recording sessions,,some of the songs are worked out and some songs we are going for a more spontaneous approach to see where it takes us but so far we are getting some cool dynamics in drum tones and songs which will ultimately lead to a more diverse and crazy sounding album..it’s looking good so far !!

Dublin based doom trio Dread Sovereign have unleashed the details on their forthcoming full length debut. The album will carry the title All Hell’s Martyrs and will be released through Van Records sometime in March. On the new offering, vocalist and bassist Nemtheanga commented:
Things come together fast on the surface but the DREAD SOVEREIGN album has been dwelling in my subconscious for years, playing riffs to myself over the years. It’s only in the last fifteen months that I’ve put flesh on the bones with a proper band and here we are with an album ready for Ván Records to release. The aspirations are difficult to explain as it’s been a form of catharsis to finally get the demons out after all this time but here it is; some gnarled and evil old school doom/metal — a few surprises and different elements here and there — but nothing more and nothing less.
After the break you will find the album’s artwork and track listing, as well as a stream of their new 10 minute dirge “Cthulhu Opiate Haze” (courtesy of Roadburn). Pre-orders for the album can be purchased here.

TOURNIQUETS TIGHTEN….HACKSAWS RIP…..GRAVES ARE FILLED…..THIS IS AUTOPSY, THIS IS DEATH METAL…. With the stench of ‘The Headless Ritual’ still permeating the befouled air, Autopsy has once again come for your very metal soul with their newest blood soaked homage to all things dark, twisted and horrific….once again bone crushingly heavy nightmares await….”Tourniquets, Hacksaws and Graves” will awaken the most depraved part of the coldest zombie’s stare…..blood will flow, brains will be destroyed, coffin lids will be opened…
That should excite someone! Below you can view the album’s official artwork.
