The Dead Lay Waiting

The Dead Lay Waiting were an English metalcore band from Swindon, Wiltshire, formed in 2008 by the means of a local rock school. The group included Luke Lucas (vocals), Ben Connett (lead guitar), Steve Franklin (rhythm guitar), Sam Sara (bass guitar) and Tom Shrimpton (drums).
The band's music is a diverse mix of extreme metal genres, such as hardcore metal, melodic metalcore and even elements of heavy metal. To achieve a chaotic and cacophonic sound, the band uses complex time signatures, polyrhythmic composition, blast beats, sampling, keyboard effects and intricate layered production.
