Dutch death metal squad Dictated are unleashing the third crushing track entitled 'Taphe' taken from their upcoming album 'Phobos', which will be released on October 25th 2019. 'Phobos' is the follow-up to 2014's 'The Deceived'. With ‘Phobos’, Dictated is leaving behind their known-path of ‘old-school’, and add the purest of misery without the loss of their blast-beat ethics.

Dictated comments on 'Taphe'':-
"We have taken you up high and of the edge with 'Hypso' and plunged you into the vast depth of the sea with 'Thalasso'. Now it's time to let the weight of the earth choke us slowly...'Taphe' (phobia) is also known as the fear of being buried alive. In the history of mankind, this fear became reality for about 2% of the burials. Notable persons in history requested their veins cut or their heart taken out because of this. In some cases people were buried with a string attached to an (above ground) bell; saved by the bell....
With 'Hypso', we have shown sheer brutality and 'Thalasso' took us back to our old death metal roots. 'Taphe' shows another dimension of the diversity that is 'Phobos'. We hope you enjoy this track, as much as we do!
the rhyThm of a heartbeat, defining smAll contrasts, tranquillity and Peace, notHing is all, silEnce fills the air."
The new opus was recorded, mixed and mastered at Double Impact Productions by Pieter Tjeerdsma & WD Glashouwer. Cover artwork came courtesy of Greg ‘AbsuManiac’ Czart.
