Constructed from the aggressive textures of early industrial music, the ambience of cold wave, and the dynamic energy of post-punk; Deathday blends dark and often esoteric images with sparse, primal analog sounds.
In 2009, the trio began to work on what would become their debut album amidst the summer heat, immersing themselves in isolation, dark iconography, occultism, and American violence. To capture the aesthetics of the subject matter musically, the band exercised heavy use of tape saturation and manipulation, recording on everything from reel-to-reels to boomboxes. Cascading through a plethora of tape mediums and analog devices intentionally gave the recordings a sense of urgency and decay.
Deathday’s self-titled debut is issued on limited white vinyl via desire in association with Sweating Tapes.
