The Dead XIII, a 5-piece horror metal group hailing from Manchester, have released a lyric video to accompany the first track, Frostbite, from their new album 'Catacombs'.
There's a particular hotness about the horror-metal genre at the moment, with Kerrang coining the term #newgrave, these guys could easily take a lead in that arena. Rather than the goth/punk/rock crossovers that are typically leading the charge, The Dead XIII have a more agressive stance, more suitably matched with the likes of The Defiled and Rob Zombie.
The album, 'Catacombs' is due to be released on 10th August and will follow on from what is surely bound to be an amazing month of July when the band hit the road on The British Horror Story Tour, along with 'Ashestoangels' and 'Farewell, My Love' (details below).
The lyric video accompanies the track 'Frostbite'. Take a look here:
