Atlanta-based grindcore band Dead in the Dirt were formed in December of 2008 by guitarist/vocalist Blake Connally, who provided lyrics for all the songs; he was joined by drummer Hank Pratt and bassist/vocalist Bo Orr, who also provided the artwork for all of the band's releases.
Their first effort came in the form of the 2010 EP Vold, which showcased the band's short blasts of ultra-violent grindcore with some black metal undercurrents. That EP was followed by Fear in 2011. Signing to Southern Lord Records, the group readied its debut full-length, The Blind Hole, which was released in 2013. The album's 22 tracks clocked in at under half-an-hour total. ~ Fred Thomas, Rovi
