Dutch death metal squad DICTATED are unveiling a drum playthrough video for their massive track ‘Lysso’, taken from their recently released album ‘Phobos’. Watch Frank ‘Skillpero’ Schilperoort (INCANTATION, SHINING, THE MONOLITH DEATHCULT) play ‘Lysso’ here: youtu.be/poDLPym2kR4.
‘Phobos‘ is the follow-up to 2014’s ‘The Deceived‘. With ‘Phobos‘, Dictated is leaving behind their known-path of ‘old-school’, and add the purest of misery without the loss of their blast-beat ethics.
Frank ‘Skillpero’ Schilperoort comments: “While writing drums for Lysso, a very diverse song and the fastest on the album, I went beyond the ‘usual’ blast beats & double bass. I dipped into my marching drum roots, as well as Hoglan/Reinert influenced cymbal work and Cavalera-like tribal drums. Be sure to watch till the end if you’re into Dirk blasts!“.
The new opus was recorded, mixed and mastered at Double Impact Productions by Pieter Tjeerdsma & WD Glashouwer. Cover artwork came courtesy of Greg ‘AbsuManiac’ Czart.
