2014 is turning out to be a pretty sweet year for the music of the slow variety. It is already witness to some astounding releases from the likes of YOB, Doom: VS, Earth, Pallbearer etc. A release that is equally on par or perhaps even more astounding than these is the third full length by Australian sludge dwellers, The Dead. Their ability to fuse doom, sludge and crushing death makes it a one of a kind genre bender. Titled ‘Deathsteps to Oblivion’, this records sees the band push the boundaries further with the unconventional, yet intriguing mix of sounds.

Over the period we’ve been operating, we’ve received countless number of promos from underground bands seeking recognition for their work and talent. Looking at some of these artists, it’s a saddening fact that they dont get the level of attention that their skills deserve. Our primary aim here, in Metal Gallows, is to put the spot light on such bands who’s music simply must be heard.
Death metal is a genre that lot of the promos we receive can be classified under. So for our first compilation, we’ve gathered 18 bands whose music truly phenomenal and must be heard by every fan of the genre. Now the bands here vary from traditional death metal to technical and progressive death metal, with everything in between. So without further ado, here’s Metal Gallows Death Metal Compilation Vol I: http://www9.zippyshare.com/v/91589731/file.html.
