Texas death metallers CREEPING DEATH will kick off their US tour supporting veteran grind titans Cattle Decapitation on their Death…At Last tour next week! The journey begins January 18th in San Diego, California and runs through February 20th in Mesa, Arizona. Additional support will be provided by The Last Ten Seconds Of Life and Extinction A.D. See all confirmed dates below.
CREEPING DEATH will be touring in support of their critically-adored The Edge Of Existence EP, recently issued via MNRK Heavy. With a nod to crossover masters Iron Age, a bit of the tech-death of Cryptopsy, a foundation of forebearers Death, CREEPING DEATH summons a vibrant sound somehow both familiar and fresh. The Edge Of Existence EP further demonstrates the power, fury, and outright revelry at the heart of the band’s identity.
Captured at Homewrecker Recording Studio in Tucson, Arizona and produced and mixed by Ryan Bram (Gatecreeper, Bitter Rivals, Sex Prisoner), the six-song EP introduces three new certified hellraisers — “Relics From The Past,” “Humanity Transcends,” and the title track — alongside remade and revitalized versions of the three songs from the band’s 2016 debut EP — “Sacrament Of Death,” “Doused In Flames,” and “Skinned Alive.”
The Edge Of Existence EP is available on CD, cassette, digitally, and vinyl at THIS LOCATION.
Originally hailing from Denton, Texas and now situated in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area, guitarist Trey Pemberton, Iranian-American singer Reese Alavi, bassist Eric “Rico” Mejia, drummer Lincoln Mullins, and guitarist A.J. Ross III comprises the group Revolver called the, “Power Trip-endorsed band leading the next wave of Texas metal.” They refused to let the 2020 pandemic destroy their momentum, even after COVID sidelined two of them for several weeks. The group emerged from lockdown with a punishing array of their most crushing material yet. Ross (also of Kombat and Torture Tomb, with Cole Crutchfield of Knocked Loose) made his recorded debut with CREEPING DEATH, adding another heavy dimension to their massive bellow on The Edge Of Existence.
“CREEPING DEATH play with a vigor that puts them above most of their contemporaries.” — Spin
“The butt-ugly vocals, gurgling guitar tones and straightforward, almost instinctual thrust provides a legible map for the moshers, but there’s enough happening on top to please OSDM addicts.” — Revolver
“‘Guttural’ does not begin to describe the vocals. ‘Heavy’ cannot capture the guitars. There are no words for drums this fast and assaulting. CREEPING DEATH serves up cold, sonic violence…” — Metal Injection
“The newly-released title track sounds even heavier and less hardcore-tinged than Wretched Illusions, and it shakes things up with a proggy atmospheric side too.” — BrooklynVegan on the title track
“The perfect soundtrack to a dying, plague-ridden planet, title track ‘The Edge of Existence’ looks like it was filmed after the fall of humankind.” — Dallas Observer on “The Edge Of Existence” video
“…heavy AF…” — New Noise Magazine
