Beneath The Sod Doom Metal / Co. Dublin

Official Facebook Biography…

“Decrepit filth summoned forth from the subconscious multiverse that coils, spits and spews within the rotted wastes of my blackened pulsating brain.”

  –  Fort Evil Fruit…
“Ray Keenaghan has long been involved in Ireland’s doom scene as the drummer of WRECK OF THE HESPERUS and more recently GOURD. His solo project BENEATH THE SOD is in similar territory to WOTH‘s self-styled “mental funeral doom” but with a different unsavoury flavour – his usual percussive fluidity being for the most part replaced with neanderthal brutality amid harsh noise-damaged riffage and industrial decay. A soundtrack to slowly mummifying bog bodies.”

– Cursed Monk Records…
“BENEATH THE SOD scrape back the top soil to lay bare all that is repulsive and feculent beneath. Narcotic and eldritch, BENEATH THE SOD erodes the listener with a writhing tapestry of industrial doom, grinding noise and hallucinatory horror. Punishing and bewildering, with each release BENEATH THE SOD sinks deeper into their unique and singularly maddening mire.”

His releases feature guest appearances from AC (WOTH, MALTHUSIAN), Baggy (WAR IRON), Richard Carson (UNYIELDING LOVE) and artwork from AC and Paul McCarroll (PRIMORDIAL et al).
