Like a house infested with an overwhelmingly unseen presence; a phantom existing only in your peripherals, demanding you keep up on your toes and your head on swivel.
Deathtax isn’t safe.
A five-piece hailing from the desolate acres of northern Indiana, Deathtax is more than just a peculiar bump in the night.
The most recent release is a three-song promo dragging the listener through a tale of abuse, defeat, and the crawl back out of the hole. I Will Never Leave You showcases the group at their most violent, only offering relief in short and tense moments of surgically placed samples and noise.
Equal parts schizophrenic guitars, thunderous percussion, ethereal ambience, and frontman Joey Kaufman’s feral vocals, you end up with a refreshing take on chaotic hardcore that will haunt you endlessly.
