"RATH is the latest incarnation of Sean Bailey's apocalyptic hardcore. These songs were recorded during the Winter of 2020 during the Melbourne lockdown. RATH distills familiar elements of Bailey's arsenal: a hive of screaming guitar leads buzz around a bass / drum lockstep creepy crawling under a vocal delivery of claustrophobic disgust. A nightmare leaking through a face mask.
The ritual chanting and dense mood of Lakes (the blade of winter is rotten!) meets the post-peace punk assault of Tax / Tol / Grane (Amebix, Killing Joke, Siekiera). 2020 started from breathing in fire and breathing out virus. This is an appropriate soundtrack for the end"-DX (Distort, Total control, Straight Jacket)
Recored and performed in Winter 2020 by Sean Bailey, Melbourne, Australia. Mastered by Joshua Wells, Spring 2020.
