Trail of Dead’s new album ‘X: The Godless Void and Other Stories’ review: A Cambodia-inspired noise rock epic

Trail of Dead has announced their 10th album following the return of vocalist Conrad Keely from Cambodia. The album varies in many degrees between tracks but it sweeps us through beautifully with multiple harmonies and instruments married with powerfully charged drumming and modulated vocals.

Post-hardcore alternative rock virtuosos …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead (often abbreviated Trail of Dead) are returning after a six-year musical intermission with their 10th studio album ‘X: The Godless Void and Other Stories’. The full-length LP is due out on January 17 on Dine Alone Records in North America.

The group sought in solemn desire to begin work on the new album in 2018 after co-lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Conrad Keely returned home to Austin, Texas, following five years in Cambodia, rejoining fellow founding member and partnering vocalist Jason Reece.

The American group formed in 1994 in Austin and played their first show in 1995, the same year they released a live rendition of the hauntingly discordant ‘Novena Without Faith’ as a demo on a mixtape via Golden Hour, an underground cassette-only label.
