India’s online fanzine DIABOLICAL CONQUEST, which covers genres like Death Metal, Grindcore, Black, Doom and Thrash Metal recently started an own label called Diabolical Conquest Records and have just released their first CD which is a re-release of THE DEAD’s 2009 self-released 2nd album "Ritual Executions". According to the label it is "a brilliant mix of twisted, brain-warping Death Metal and miasmic sludgy / Stoner Doom". Diabolical Conquest Records’ version of the sold out "Ritual Executions" album has a modified colour artwork sketched by vocalist Mike Yee and is specially re-mixed and re-mastered by Aphotic Mote of the famed Australian Death Metal band PORTAL. It also has an 8-side booklet with additional artworks. More details here: www.diabolicalconquest.com.
