Death Doom

Experience DEPLETED’s Death DOOM cover of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds “The Mercy Seat”

The slow-moving dark beauty of Depleted’s Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds cover of “The Mercy Seat” is suffocating bliss! This band reworks this hymn into their own Death Doom hymn of despair. While listening to this song, I can’t help but think about the unholy treatment that Indigenous People and African People have endured at the hands of European people for centuries. How religion has been used to justify the torture and genocide of fellow human beings. How the same people who torture and rape and destroy cultures ask for mercy and absolution when it comes time to harvest the hate they’ve sewn. Depleted’s new tape Onus comes out on June 25th via Nailbat Tapes!
