Alustrium “Join the Dead” With Catchy, Techy, Brutal New Single


Alustrium are back with “Join the Dead,” the third single from their forthcoming album, joining “Deliverance for the Damned” and “This Hollow Ache.”

And I think it might be my favorite of the bunch so far! The riffs are the catchiest through and through, making it the most likely to get stuck in my dome. Perhaps that’s why they saved it for third? Third is the one with the hairy chest, the old saying goes, and that’s me!

Says the band of the song:

“Conceptually, ‘Join the Dead’ sets the stage for much of the story that is to come throughout ‘A Monument to Silence.’ It was really important to us that the concept be matched instrumentally and vocally, and the result is a mix of chaos up front and heavier, darker instrumentation later in the song. The lyrics detail feelings of hopelessness and helplessness, as well as the initial consequences of rash decisions made in response. Like the rest of the record, while there is a literal, objective interpretation of the lyrics, we’ve also tried to create something that can be experienced subjectively and be meaningful to anyone.”
