New: Death Rattle – The Dig

Death Rattle is such an awesome name for a band. Defined as ‘a medical term that describes the sound produced by someone who is near death when saliva accumulates in the throat’ it brings about dark, fairly violent connotations, and certainly bodes well for the music, in my mind. London duo Helen and Chris Hamilton (ex-That Mouth) are currently recording under this slightly macabre title, and have just released their debut track, The Dig. A dirty, behemoth of a first outing, it’s percussion heavy, yet fairly sparse, relying heavily on the immaculate production of the track. Check out the twisted video for The Dig below, and head over to the Death Rattle bandcamp for a free download.
