As freshly-formed outfit DETHBEDS forges its way into the Chicago scene preceding the Fall release of their Dungeon Scum debut LP, Decibel Magazine offers the record a boost into the masses with an exclusive early stream of its scathing title track.
With its members collectively hailing from a varied range of metal, punk, hip hop, and psych scenes,DETHBEDS marries this diversification with explosive fury; the result is a relentlessly energetic attack heavily influenced by the likes of Converge, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Refused, Botch, and more. Offers the band alongside the release of their debut record’s title track, “The most recently written song on the album, ‘Dungeon Scum’ provides contrast from our overall punk ethos to a more punishing and sophisticated writing style that reflects our combined influences.”

A newly-formed outfit, DETHBEDS unites a host of influence from a wide array of musical backgrounds, resulting in a volatile concoction of angular metallic, punk-fueled hardcore. Formed in Owosso, Michigan, the band recently finalized a new lineup and located to Chicago, a city in which they had communed and performed together with their prior acts. Most of Dungeon Scum was written in Michigan, before the band was a fully realized project. Following their migration to Chicago, the band fine-tuned the tracks and recorded the album with Adam Stilson at Decade Music Studios, located inside of DIY music venue The Observatory, after which it was mastered by Collin Jordan at The Boiler Room, and completed with cover art by Tom Jenkins at Black Eagle Press.
