WE SELL THE DEAD Unveil Animated Music Video For New Song ‘Turn It Over’
January 12th, 2018

Swedish metal group We Sell The Dead issue debut full-length studio album Heaven Doesn’t Want You And Hell Is Full on February 23rd, 2018 through earMUSIC.

Bassist Jonas Slättung commented: “From the late 1800, an era that has inspired our band enormously, comes one of the greatest and darkest crime mysteries of them all: Jack The Ripper. We don’t know 100 percent who he was but we know his horrendous deeds. All the visuals we had in our mind, combined with the sometimes slightly morbid lyrics, made us think that this is what music would have sounded like if heavy metal had existed in the 19th century, or if Jack The Ripper had travelled forward in time to join a metal band. We Sell The Dead would have been his natural choice for a backing band. He probably would have felt right at home with us.

“But, at the same time, the world hasn’t exactly evolved into a beautiful place since the 1880s. In the 1979 movie, Time After Time, Jack The Ripper escapes justice by, indeed, fleeing in a time machine to 1979. After getting caught by his followers, The Ripper utters this line of wisdom: ‘Back in 1893, I was a monster. Today… I’m an amateur.’”

01. ‘The Body Market’
02. ‘Echoes Of An Ugly Past’
03. ‘Leave Me Alone’
04. ‘Imagine’
05. ‘Turn It Over’
