Winnipeg’s death metal troopers in Psychotic Gardening have teamed up with Bravewords.com for the exclusive premiere of their tribute to Death with a cover of “Open Casket” featuring guest appearances from Tim Roth (Into Eternity) and Chuck Wepfer (Broken Hope). Give it a listen at this location.
Andrew Wiens (guitar) comments: “Awhile back, we played with Massacre at a Chuck Schuldiner tribute show and we played ‘Open Casket.’ It turned out really cool with the slow grinding PG spin, so we just had to record it.”
Chuck Labosssiere (guitar/vocals) adds: “As it is for a lot of people, Death was a big influence on us. We wanted to pay homage but also do our own thing with it, slowing it down, making it ‘doomy.’ We like to be creative and original even when we do covers. Both Tim (Roth) and Chuck (Wepfer) are naturally big Death fans themselves, so it just worked out to be this great collaboration and tribute. I’m honoured to have these two guys appear on this song, they are great friends and awesome players”
Psychotic Gardening return in 2014 with new material and the return of Chuck Labossiere after he filled in with Broken Hope for tour dates in Europe and Canada. The forthcoming album “Hymnosis” is set for release on May 13th and will follow 2011’s “Humanitorium” and 2007’s debut “Hürdür.” A promo clip for the new album is available below.
