Introducing The Dead XIII

Hailing from Manchester, The Dead XIII are a five piece horror metal act with the ability to thrill in one second and make you want to headbang so hard your head falls off in the next. Ready for your first taste of The Dead XIII?

Good. The band have just released a lyric video for the title track from their debut album Catacombs, along with a killer video for ‘XIII’. With a storming chorus proudly proclaiming “thirteen ways to die”, The Dead XIII’s vicious blend of visceral horror metal will ensure that even the undead can learn one or two new ways to finish the job.

XIII is the lead single from the forthcoming début studio album Catacombs, which is set for release on 10th August. You can preorder your copy now here.

The Dead XIII have this to say: “We are really excited to finally release our debut studio album, “Catacombs”. The Album demonstrates an evolution of the band and ourselves as people.
