I can't even tell how many strings this album is pulling in me. But it sure invokes a terrible sense of longing and puryfying sadness.
And Drawing Down is one of the most intense tracks in the history of tracks. As my friend says: if this doesn't put tears in your eyes that means you're an i bastard.
Favorite track: Drawing Down.

Ever wonder what Wavering Radiant-era Isis would sound like if they were obsessed with The Cure and Joy Division? No? Well, listen to this anyway because it's brilliant.
Favorite track: Grave.

“[Fiber] is a one of a kind record and utterly compelling.” – The Sludgelord
“Syrupy and morose, Dead Register embody a great deal of what’s best about the gothic doom style, but express those ideas in an atmospheric sludge context.” – (Editor’s Choice April 2016) Invisible Oranges
“[The Fiber] music video increases the song’s power, giving this reviewer both chills and making her overwhelmingly excited for this sound to exist.” – (5/5) Music Existence
“It has been a while since a debut album has grabbed me by the throat and dared me not to love it. Atlanta trio, ‘Dead Register’ have released such an album, a goth-tinged rock album that has had way too much airplay in my lugholes!” – (4.5/5) Rock n’ Reel Reviews
“Fiber is a world of light and shadow. It’s lavish and wild and absurd. Fiber boasts a dark mood that you feel helpless to escape from, should you want to escape. I for one did not want to escape the clutches of Fiber.” – The Kali Diaries
“Fiber is a six-track journey of doom and gloom, yet there is an artistic beauty that demands your full attention” – (9/10) Powerplay Magazine UK
“Badgering the senses in their unique style, Dead Register have all the atmospheric gloom off to a T, however it encapsulates thunderously melodic gaits that simply cannot be ignored” – (4/5) Ramzine UK
“[Fiber] is a release which has a uniqueness few can emulate and a fascination which simply seduces ears and emotions.” – The RingMaster Review
“Their monstrous, dreary yet simultaneously beautiful compositions could freeze entire landscapes with their icy atmospheres and decimate them with their tremendous low-end.” – (9/10) Svbterranean
“Somber melodies and soaring, gothic-tinged vocals that could freeze landscapes with their beautifully cold atmospheres” – American Aftermath
“The six songs on Fiber are wonderful and feature some of the best gloomy post punk songs this side of the 1980’s... It’s completely enthralling and fantastic, full of somber melodies and gorgeous drum work.” – Xtapolapometal
Fiber is Dead Register’s first full-length release with six songs clocking in at 43 minutes on AVR Records. Recorded, Mixed, and Mastered by Dan Dixon (Whores, The Life and Times, PLS PLS, Biters).
