In England, during the late 1800’s, graveyards found themselves running out of room to bury the recently deceased, so they decided to begin exhuming the graves of past generations and cremating the remains to make room for fresh burials. Lo and behold they discovered that one out of every few graves contained “claw marks” inside the coffin from where an unwilling or unbeknownst person had unfortunately been buried alive. After consideration, it was determined that the victims must have suffered from a catatonic state of lead-poisoning due to drinking from lead containers which brought the vital signs of the “thirstmonger” to a coma toxic form of zombification.
Hours later they awoke to the morbid realization of spending their last moments on earth pushing up daisies within a coffin. To remedy the situation, casket builders began attaching bells to the coffins and gravesites of the departed, and then bound them with cords which ran to the wrist or fingers of the “deceased”. If per chance the dead were to wake from sleep they could ring the bell to notify the gravekeeper, to dig them up. These walking dead were called “Dead Ringers”
Our core sound is the 80’s Metal Riffs, Chops, Gallops, Epic Themes and solos of Melodic, Thrash, Speed and Groove blended with minor elements of rock, blues, folk, classical and fused into our own brand of progressive metal with rich colors and vivid soundscapes . Vocally powerful and emotive with a dark passionately pure form of aggressive tones and timbres. Lyrics are positive artistic and thought provoking characterized by classic poetic/literary devices e.g. word painting, foreshadowing and golden moments.
