New band of the day : The Sweet Release Of DeathWHO?

The brilliantly named The Sweet Release Of Death are the latest in a long line of great new Dutch bands  brought to our attention by Subroutine Records. Hailing from Rotterdam the three piece deal in that aching dark yet melodically sweet death trip that once made Sonic Youth such an attractive proposition but with very much their own thing going on.



You want to see them play live? Well they have been booked for Rockaway Beach Festival in January joint a great line up there.
