Dunderbeist has been at it for 6 years with the same amount of releases together with extensive touring. The Norwegian six headed locomotive embarks on their sixth release, their second one outside of Norway that follows their first international effort this year, “Black Arts & Crooked Tails”, with an album of great depth and sharper edges.
“Songs of the buried” continues where "black arts.." left off, but this one is darker, heavier and more progressive, both musically and lyrically.
Not all that end is buried. Death is a recurring theme on this album, with the end of something and the beginning of the new. And a focus on the transitional stages in life, those big events that make everything else become lucid and intangible. It is in the shadows of those big
emotions that the test of man dwells.
The album was like the previous ones recorded in Dunderbeist's own pigsty studio in Hamar, Norway, mixed by guitarist Fredrik Ryberg. The mastering by Alan Douches (Mastodon, Converge, Kvelertak ++) really puts the final signature on the sound, and contributes to erecting "songs of the buried" like a mighty beacon among 2012 metal releases.
