Dutch death metal squad DICTATED are unleashing another brutal track entitled 'Eisoptro' taken from their upcoming album 'Phobos', which will be released on October 25th 2019. 'Phobos' is the follow-up to 2014's 'The Deceived'. With ‘Phobos’, Dictated is leaving behind their known-path of ‘old-school’, and add the purest of misery without the loss of their blast-beat ethics.
DICTATED comments on 'Eisoptro': "We are proud to present you one last fear, before we unleash 'Phobos' upon the world.
'Eisoptro' is also known as the fear of mirrors. The fear is often grounded in superstitions, like breaking a mirror will bring you bad luck, or that looking into a mirror will put you in contact with a supernatural world inside the glass. We directed this fear more into the grounding of the psyche and the aversion of the reflection looking back.
Mirror mirror on the wall, a silent rumination. Mirror mirror on the wall, a careful contemplation"
