Official press release:
Texas death metal torch bearers Creeping Death will unleash The Edge Of Existence October 8th via Entertainment One!
Crafted at Homewrecker Recording Studio in Tucson, Arizona and produced and mixed by Ryan Bram (Gatecreeper, Bitter Rivals, Sex Prisoner), the six-song EP introduces certified hellraisers “Relics From The Past”, “Humanity Transcends”, and the title track. The new bangers sit alongside remade and revitalized versions of the three songs from Creeping Death’s 2016 debut EP: “Sacrament Of Death”, “Doused In Flames”, and “Skinned Alive”.
Guitarist Trey Pemberton notes of the EP, without apology:
“We’re aren’t trying to be the most innovative death metal band. We just want to be heavy and fun. You’ll hear a natural progression from Wretched Illusions to The Edge Of Existence. And the next LP will be different, as well. Each release will be at least a little bit different from each other, but they will all still sound like Creeping Death. That’s who we are.”
In advance of the EP’s release, the band unleashes a video for eponymous EP opener, “The Edge Of Existence”, now playing at Brooklyn Vegan. The track showcases the cold, sonic violence that lies within their unique combination of death metal and hardcore, while introducing a spacious and progressive direction similar to Blood Incantation.
Notes Pemberton of the timely track:
“‘The Edge Of Existence’ was the first of several new songs we’ve written since the onset of the pandemic. It begs that all too familiar question, ‘can people band together for a greater cause? Or will we continue to make the same mistakes until the end of civilization?’”
