The Rat

By Dead Confederate

As a precursor to their debut full-length, psych-rock five piece Dead Confederate release the jet-black trudge of 'The Rat.'

While there's a definite trippiness to frontman Hardy Morris' hazy vocal lines, and the occasional, glimmery chord rises from the gloom of the rest of the song; beyond that, 'The Rat' is a song of hopeless, bleak beauty. The drums limp painfully through swathes of black-hearted riffs that slowly gather themselves to a dark peak, out of which Morris' wracked vocals soar, before trailing off in a strangled croak.

'The Rat' is a wretched trudge with light touches of the psychedelic bringing a bright glint, and an unexpected catchiness, to this doomy song.
