Dead in the Woods-st cd demo

These guys come from Nottingham, UK and this is their 3 track cd recorded in 2008. I don't know anything about them, their myspace has only a few things, they were born from the ashes of band called Army of Flying Robots, they recently released a split tape w Diet Pills .
The demo was recorded in 2008 and its a piece of doomy hardcore, something like a slow and sick version of His Hero is Gone,there is an excellent review in Nineheartz, written about one year ago and describes nicely what the band delivers, here it is:
"Rising from the slumber of Army of Flying Robots foreseeable lay-off, Dead In The Woods lay down some seriously heavy tunes for their first release. Recorded at Stuck On A Name studios in Nottingham, this CD comes in a cardboard sleeve, complete with intelligent lyrics and explanations of said tracks, and a wax seal of the band's logo on the back to keep it all together. You can't beat a well put together CD like this, anyone can throw a few tunes on Myspace for download, but it will never replace the joy found in throwing on a great CD or record, and checking out the complete package.
Musically, this lays somewhere between the slower-to-mid tempos of His Hero Is Gone and High On Fire, and an apt word to describe it would be crushing. 'Sunken Cathedral' kicks things off with a snaking guitar riff, before it's buried beneath the rest of the band joining in, and it doesn't let up for 6 minutes, as guitars trampled you like a herd of elephants, drums pound and vocals roar. The pace picks up slightly for 'With Us The Fire Lives On' with its driving and changing rhythms, before 'Retribution' finishes things off with more tight riffing and thundering drum fills. Speaking of drumming, the surprise package here is Henry, if you've only heard/seen him screaming for AOFR, he certainly knows his way around a kit.
So, great artwork and great music, giving you a glimpse of what these boys can do. More please"

no more rant.
