Can you get more death metal or black metal than naming your band Epic Death? Well, that’s exactly the name of the Texas-based black/death/thrash metal band, and they’ve just released their brand new for “Hide.” Have a watch in the player above! The video is pretty standard fair, and it was directed by Triin and filmed at Musician Services Unlimited.
As for what the track is about, frontman and guitarist, Dennis Dorsett says:
It’s about the pain of an unhappy life filled with regret and the only thing you want to do is hide from the pain by finding a safe place by yourself, unfortunately, no matter where you hide time will find you.
“Hide” lives on the band’s forthcoming album, Witchcraft, which sees release on December 11th. Pre-orders can be made here.
About Epic Death:
Texas-based metal unit Epic Death live up to their name in more ways than one: with an imposing musical pedigree and decades of combined experience in multiple bands across several genres, they weave a tapestry of sinister sonic atmospheres, bringing together the imagery, theatricality and brute force of classic black metal, thrash and technical death metal with eerie soundscapes, apocalyptic lyrics and haunting melodies, drawing influence from such iconic bands as Slayer, Dimmu Borgir, Death, Cradle Of Filth, and Behemoth, while simultaneously exploring dark new horizons in extreme music.
The band was conceived in 2010 by guitarist/front man Dennis Dorsett – whose previous credits include work with Aggravated Assault, Chaos, Mischief, Majik, Balance, and NeverDead – and features a stellar lineup of artists from the metal circles of Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth: keyboardist/vocalist Becky Dorsett; rhythm/lead guitarist Nathan Chance; bass guitarist Justin Riddler of Dead Trip and drummer Reece Stanley, alumnus of Dallas metallers Phantom-X.
With their core lineup in place, the band quickly began their rise to prominence, gaining acclaim both within and beyond the Lone Star State, sharing the stage with metal heavyweights from all points of the globe – including Nile, Finntroll, Mushroomhead, and Gemini Syndrome, to name just a few – and have played high profile venues such as Minnesota’s annual NYDM Festival and Houston’s legendary Scout Bar. They are also prominently featured in Derek Norman’s 2012 documentary “Heavy in Houston,” and back before the cameras in the film’s sequel “Heavier in Houston”.
Epic Death is now releasing their full length “Witchcraft,” produced by Stephen Bogle (formerly of acclaimed industrial act The Hunger), and are set to crush and conquer –once again confirming the phrase “Things are bigger in Texas” with their own brand of colossal, uncompromising metal.
