What do you get when you combine Electric Wizard’s former rhythm section with Rise Above Records owner and Cathedral mastermind Lee Dorrian? You get With the Dead and a hell of a lot of sludgy doom. The band’s, nay, supergroup’s debut album will be released this Friday, but to tide you over until then, they’ve released a video for “Crown of Burning Stars,” which premiered on Decibel earlier today. It looks like exactly what you would expect it to: grainy and filled with ’70s footage of drug use, satanic rituals, natural disasters, death and destruction. It’s a bad trip that perfectly matches the sludgy riff-fest serving as it’s musical accompaniment.
With the Dead will be out worldwide this Friday, October 16th. You can order it here.
