Darren Deicide brings us a driving blues and folk music with the album The Blues Non Est Mortuum, and it isn't your usual formula. This album perfectly captures the haunting and dark emotional aspects of blues- like a Rob Zombie horror movie set in the Southwestern regions of Tucson, Arizona- with songs like "Throwing It All Away" and "Killing the Dead". Do yourself a favor: roll up a doob, dim the lights, and lay back on the couch when listening to The Blues Non Est Mortuum.
His album is available on his website, both for digital download and Vinyl!
