Dutch death metallers DICTATED released their debut album, “The Deceived” in August of this year. Last month, guitarists Sonja Schuringa and Jessica Otten shot a guitar demonstration video to show fans just exactly how “The Basher” is played. The track itself features guest vocalist Jason Keyser of Origin! Watch Sonja and Jessica shred at metalblade.com/dictated.
Dictated comments on the song: “The Basher was the last song written, two days before entering the studio. It has become our personal favourite because it containes all the death metal ingredients and a memorable chorus! A special shirt will be printed for this song.“

Once upon a time, the furious female guitar tandem Yessica Otten and Sonja Schuringa stumbled upon Michiel vd Plicht and Henri Sattler during a heavy drinking session. While Henri was hustling to sell the girls one of his custom-made SK Guitars they managed to talk business in creating the new Dictated album. On that very same night, vocalist York picked up the sense of success and after another night in the Irish pub, he was there to stay.
The five of them took over the rehearsal rooms and Henri enslaved the others into writing at their utmost. Ten new songs were born with the help of an overload of sweat, beer and coffee.
In September 2013, Dictated took over Studio Soundlodge for the recordings of their new album “The Deceived“. In the meantime, various hilarious photo-shoots took place where friends and family of Dictated found themselves back mutilated in the artwork.
Humor, some serious questionability of the sane mind and above all, determination and willpower produced the new story of Dictated and “The Deceived“.
As know to their fans, Dictated is ready to hit the stages again. To dominate every venue with their live performance, just like their European tour with Origin in 2012.
