Timbo Seductive gloom that entrances. It crushes my heart yet fills me with strength. Katatonia is the closest comparison that I can think of in terms of emotional vibe/connection when I listen to this wonderful band. Favorite track: Captive.
Ghostbound

Ghostbound Dead Register perfectly bridges that gap between post-punk, doom metal, and noise rock with morose aplomb. M. Chvasta's vocals are incredible, for one, which is a rarity in heavier music. This is somewhere between Cop Shoot Cop, Killing Joke, and Roy Orbison. Highly, highly recommended.

pilotcp I'm really digging this band's sound. The bass VI is painfully underused as a lead instrument but I think this band does a great job bringing it to light. The textures that the keys bring to the game are also perfect -- they fit in perfectly around the bass VI and drums to really bring out a dark and gloomy texture that just sounds right. I will be listening to this CD for a LONG time. Favorite track: Monochrome.

about

“…they write the kind of music that more well-known bands like King Woman aspire to make — an atmospheric update to a classic sound, equally indebted to Black Sabbath and My Bloody Valentine.” – Decibel Magazine

“The key selling point for me is it answers the question I ask most music, “Is it dark enough for me?”… I think the biggest compliment I can give these guys is how quickly this album made its way to my iPod, as it’s something I would listen to on a fairly regular basis – it sits nicely between my goth tendencies and the more downtrodden doomy fare.” – CVLT Nation

Captive: #12 EP of 2018 – No Clean Singing

“Every word in praise of Fiber by us and so many others can be echoed with zeal in regard to the Captive EP, but not only repeated but escalated as its five tracks venture to mouth-watering new heights in the imaginative craft and inventive prowess of Dead Register… Captive is pure aural alchemy and one of the year’s essential encounters” – The RingMaster Review

“Dead Register deliver a great piece for all the dark souls out there. Very impactful. I wished “Captive” was a full-length album so that I continue my experience with it in the dusk of the dying autumn day in my gloomy, abandoned castle, abundant of lonely shadows and ghosts from the past. Very much recommended – 8/10” – Count Vlad, Blessed Altar Zine

"Their delightfully haunting sound brings together shoegaze-esque doomy riffs with lush, richly textured vocals which are pretty much the aural equivalent of black velvet, and as a whole it makes for a deeply atmospheric listening experience with more than a touch of grown up spookiness. 8/10 <3” – Powerplay Magazine UK

“I was glad that this was only a short EP, it went by quick enough and I got through it without too much agony... If you are a fan of Type O Negative, are brooding, live in your parent’s basement, or like things that are derivative… this is for you! I hope that they can come up with something far more original in the future.” – The Independent Voice

“Captive resides somewhere between [The Cure] Disintegration and [Neurosis] Through Silver in Blood, towing the line between melancholic soundscapes and seismic heaviness.” – Svbterranean

The Captive EP is the third release from ATL’s heaviest gothic doomgaze band explores shorter song structures, dense, impactful dual bass arrangements, sorrowful baritone crooning, breathtaking textures, and jagged-yet-crushing beats. Recorded, Mixed, and Mastered by Dan Dixon (Whores, The Life and Times, PLS PLS, Biters) with Assistant Engineer Josh Dylan.
