“Oculus Rot”, the debut album from Dutch Death Metallers BURIED, has just been released via Brutal Mind. A full album stream is available right here. Members of BURIED have released the following comments: “You may remember the brutal vocals of Joel Sta and the insane drumming of Robbe V, as they were part of the brutal Death Metal band PYAEMIA. Now they’re up for something new: together with Worm on bass – who also played in PYAEMIA – they have teamed up with Steve on guitars who adds a lot of groove in his songwriting. Bands like SUFFOCATION, REVOCATION and DECAPITATED are big influences on our sound, and even PANTERA comes to mind. We like it heavy, sometimes with odd time signatures and at the same time we want the audience to bang their heads. The lyrical theme is about all dark things we call upon ourselves. Nothing new on that part, just brutal stuff!” For all additional BURIED information check out www.facebook.com/buriedmetal
