"Severance Pay" is the new album by Dead Days Beyond Help (Alex Ward & Jem Doulton). Since forming in 2006, DDBH have devoted themselves to pushing the possibilities of their chosen format (the guitar/drums duo) to and beyond any apparent limits, creating music of delirious complexity and powerfully visceral impact. Shedding the elements of vocal song material found on previous releases "Access Denied!" and "The Game Face", DDBH here offer a full album's worth of instrumental compositions of breathtaking variety and intricacy, from the hair-raising convolutions of "Thicket" to the grandiose melancholy of "The Chain". Fans of such purveyors of brutal rock complexity as Hella, Flying Luttenbachers, Dysrhythmia or Alex's previous band Camp Blackfoot owe it to themselves to investigate this release and observe how the ante has been upped.
