About Dead River Runs Dry:
A charred black slab of ruthless venom that only Australia could spit out, Dead River Runs Dry's debut album Hierophants of the Storm is an obsession with the annihilation of constraint, a savage reaction to existence as determined by ignorance and an insight into further paradigms that are offered through experience alone...
Recorded by the band with assistance from close ally Mat Taylor and mastered by DRRD vocalist Brad Gentle, Hierophants of the Storm is an album that embodies the elemental characteristics of the natural phenomena that are storms. Merging fragments of black metal and sub-genre offshoots of hard rock/heavy metal, haunting melody and a slight psychedelic/‘experimental’ edge, Hierophants... showcases a band making a bold statement of intent early in their lifespan, refusing to be bound by genres.
Devoid of drum triggers, programming, sample replacements and guitar amp patch simulations, all sounds on the album were created with real amplification, field recordings, outboard equipment sonic conjuring and battery. Featuring stunning art by renowned artist Lucas Ruggieri, Hierophants of the Storm will be available through Static Tension Records (USA).
