If you know Decibel, you know we hold chameleonic U.K. doomsayers Paradise Lost in the highest regard. So, it’s an extremely extreme honor that Garden State funeral doom heroes Evoken are taking their maiden voyage in the Decibel Flexi Series by covering PL’s crushing “Rotting Misery,” which initially appeared on their 1990 debut, Lost Paradise.
Jersey’s most hypnotically depressive quintet recorded the cover specifically for the Flexi Series during the sessions for acclaimed fifth LP, Atra Mors, which ascended to the #3 spot in our Top 40 Albums of 2012 feature. Evoken are, of course, among the incredible openers slotted to decimate the Decibel 100th Issue Show celebration at Philadelphia’s Union Transfer on Saturday, January 19, for which tickets are going far faster than these dudes play.
If you’re not an existing subscriber, ensure that your Decibel void caress kicks off with the metallic-silver-on-black Evoken flexi via signing your life away by 9 a.m. EST Wednesday, December 5.
