Avant-garde heavy metal act EPHEL DUATH has teamed up with MetalSucks.net to premiere a new song “When Mind Escapes Flesh” from the band’s upcoming album, its first in five years, “Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness”, out November 19 in Europe and 26 in North America on Agonia Records. Stream “When Mind Escapes Flesh” exclusively at: http://www.metalsucks.net/2013/11/06/exclusive-track-premiere-mind-escapes-flesh-ephel-duath/
According to the magazine, the song is: “dizzyingly off-kilter, magnificently hypnotic, and massively intimidating.”
Ignited by commitment and passion, “Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness” is a multi-layered hybrid of death metal, jazz and post rock, and a strong statement from a band never bounded by rules. With intuition set as the only significant parameter, EPHEL DUATH takes an uncompromising will to experiment, to a whole new level of intensity. “This album holds together all that Ephel Duath’s music has touched in the last fifteen years and pushes its boundaries even further” – comments Davide Tiso. “Lyrically the new songs dig deep in higher self subject matters, combining brutally visual imagery with a painfully honest soul searching quest.”
Featuring 8 new songs and reaching over 50 minutes of total length, “Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness” includes a unique line-up of: Marco Minnemann (Kreator, Necrophagist, Joe Satriani) behind the drums, Bryan Beller (Dethklok, Joe Satriani) on bass, lead singer Karyn Crisis (Crisis,Karyn Crisis Band) along with the founder, guitarist n’ songwriter: Davide Tiso.
The album was produced by Erik Rutan (Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal) at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Studios, NY.
