An idea brewed in 2012, quickly finding its fruition as a full lineup by 2013, Dead Hand
hit the ground running with a split release on Divine Mother Recordings
with Philadelphia shredders Repellers
in January 2014. Mastered by Dan Randall of Mammoth Sound
(Ash Borer, Noothgrush, Unearthly Trance), the split received stellar reviews and the first pressing sold out almost immediately.
An EP release in July and regional touring filled the remainder of 2014. Dead Hand released their first full-length, ‘Storm of Demiurge’ In June 2015, on Divine Mother Recordings (USA) and Third I Rex (Europe).
The Burning Beard included ‘Storm of Demiurge’ on their “Top 20 of 2015” saying: “It’s a smooth and well-constructed ramp into the subterranean sludge which forms most of the album, and with it, Dead Hand quickly establish their fondness for unearthing new facets of each song with a natural-feeling flow to the changes.”
The band entered Ledbelly Sound Studios with Matt Washburn (Mastodon, Norma Jean, Leechmilk) for a 2016 released split with Miami sludge trio, Shroud Eater, on Southern Druid Records.
Dead Hand is a well oiled touring machine spanning the Eastern U.S. over the past several years. More dates being confirmed now in support of their upcoming release of their second full-length ‘Rebord Of Dead Light‘, via Divine Mother Recordings. ‘Rebord Of Dead Light‘ will be available on CD, Vinyl LP, and Digital Download or Streaming on September 7, 2018.
