Existing for eight months in 1985, THE NAKED AND THE DEAD were cult figures in New York City's small but fervent mid-'80s post-punk/proto-goth scene. The predominantly teenage deathrock quartet mixed pulsing, acrobatic basslines and waves of dark, piercing guitar with tribal drum tattoos and siren-like vocals. Constructing complex songs full of unusual time changes, they nonetheless avoided the dour and gloomy in favor of a kinetic, punkish intensity with their own brand of moody power. This self-titled collection contains all of their 1985 material, including all four studio tracks from their eponymous demo ("Taboo," "Cassandra," "Carousel," and "The Gate") as well as live material. Highly sought after by goth & punk collectors, The Naked and the Dead is the first time all of the band's collected 1985 work has been issued on vinyl. And in these modern times when classic goth-punk has seen a renaissance among younger generations, the timing is prescient for THE NAKED AND THE DEAD to received renewed interest and reappraisal.

Description
Now the third album by the duo TiefRot is available. Becky Gaber & Wielo Hofmeister have stayed true to their style - they present a loud genre mixture of NDH, Gothic and Metal elements in sung mother tongue. Son of Sorrow is a metal band founded by English vocalist Alex Padina and Spanish guitarist Manu Pineiro.\nThe duo started song writing in Jerez, Spain, in early 2015 and recorded their debut EP ?Faith in Extinction?\nin 2017 at Jotun Studio, Seville, with producer Leo Pen?a.\nFollowing the release of their first 4 tracks, Faith in Extinction reached top 3 on bandcamp?s bestselling\ngothic metal albums. Due to the positive reviews, the band rethought its original ?studio only? approach and\ncompleted the line-up with bassist Carlos Cano, drummer Unai Garci?a and guitarist Ian Pe?rez.\nIn May 2017, Son of Sorrow inks a deal with Spanish record company Art Gates Records and through their\ndigital label, the band?s tracks become available on platforms such as Spotify and iTunes. At the same time,\nSon of Sorrow starts to plan the first live shows for autumn 2017, with their second album ?Rulers of a Dying\nWorld? scheduled for recording in February 2018.\nSon of Sorrow?s music is heavily influenced by the Gothic Metal bands from the late 90s & early 2000s,\nhowever, the band has been successful in including sounds from other genres such as gothic rock, doom\nand other metal sub genres. The album has been recorded at Psychosomatic studios by M.A Riutort and mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios, like their previous album, and the cover artwork has been made by Gonzalo Aeneas.In the large list of contributions, you can find Heike Langhans of the Swedish band Draconi
