Wear a “Crown of Burning Stars” With the Dead

  • Axl Rosenberg

With the Dead have a very silly promo photo, but when you realize who it is in that promo photo, you will probably stop laughing: the supergroup features Lee Dorrian (Cathedral, ex-Napalm Death) as well as Tim Bagshaw and Mark Greening (both ex-Electric Wizard). So, yeah, the band has doom cred.

Unsurprisingly, then, their new song, “Crown of Burning Stars,” is a doomy delight. If you like fuzzy guitars that sound as though they’re being filtered directly through weed smoke and don’t mind listening to basically the same thing over and over and over for more than six straight minutes, you are gonna dig this song. Everyone else: just hit “stop” at the halfway point, you’ll get the general gist of it. I mean, that riff is sweet, right?

Check out “Crown of Burning Stars” via the below video, which Decibel debuted earlier today. With the Dead’s eponymous debut comes out this Friday, October 16, on Rise Above.
