“Orð” is Dead Skeletons first release since 2011′s Dead Magick, a record which nearly sold out in one day. “Orð”, which is an ep of 4 songs/meditations, gives a glimpse into the Dead Skeletons current state of mind. Just as the “Dead Mantra”, the songs “ódauðleg orð” and “ódauðleg orð (museum version)” were made for an art installation by Jón Sæmundur. The second track “Dead is God” is the closest the band has come to pop structure yet while communicating the “all is one, one is all” philosophy. “Cemalym” is a dark traditional Turkish folk song (most notably recorded by Erkin Koray), though the lyrics have been translated to Icelandic.
“Orð” comes out this time in a limited edition of 400 copies on white vinyl 12″ onesided with the B side silkscreened and a paper recycled tobacco colored cardboard sleeve.
