Following on from last year’s critically acclaimed 12″ release entitled Pray To The Devil In Man, the Dublin-based doom trio headed to the studio last autumn to work on the follow up release. Recorded and mixed at Dublin’s Sun Studios in September 2013, All Hell’s Martyrs is is as oppressive as it is head-bang-inducing. The album artwork was created by Costin Chioreanu whose previous credits include Grave, Darkthrone, Aura Noir and Absu.

DREAD SOVEREIGN is Nemtheanga (vocals & bass), Dubh Sol (drums) and Bones (guitar); a triumvirate of old school attitude and arcane spirituality. Although retaining the rugged, epic drama of Primordial (in which Nemtheanga and Dubh Sol both perform), DREAD SOVEREIGN are distinctly different; blending influences of Venom, Saint Vitus and Cirith Ungol in the raw underground cult doom idiom.
