There must be something in the drinking water deep in the heart of Texas. While the state has been at the forefront of rock and roll since long before ZZ Top grew out their beards, it has become the hotbed for all things punk and metal this side of the 21st century.
A well worthy inclusion in the pantheon of extreme music from the Lone Star State are Dallas death metal titans Creeping Death. Ever since getting a taste of new material with The Edge Of Existence ep in 2021, fans have been frothing at the mouth for a proper album. Their patience has now been rewarded with the announcement of Boundless Domain, and what a reward it is!
Check out the official press release below for all of the gory details:
Texas death metal outfit Creeping Death will unleash their long-awaited new full-length, Boundless Domain, on June 16th via MNRK Heavy, today revealing the record’s track listing, cover art, first single, and preorders!
Creeping Death is on a quick and furious ascent from the underground. The Texas death metal crew repeatedly delivers a relentless bludgeoning summoned from the furthest reaches of the genre’s past, present, and future. A triumphant celebration of the style itself, the Lone Star State fivesome whips up gruesome riffage and Southern grooves with an improbable cathartic glee.
Guitarist Trey Pemberton shared the following:
“We’ve never sounded better. We love the people we’ve recorded with before, but we’ve never had anybody challenge and push us as Adam did.”
“We made it a point to bring in more influences from hardcore bands we came up loving, especially Texas hardcore. There’s a lot of Mammoth Grinder, Iron Age, and Power Trip influence. Having Riley and Wade pass so close to one another left a huge hole in the scene. We all went on a kick of listening to the Texas stuff for a while, and it definitely seeped into our writing.”
Boundless Domain boasts future death metal classics like the super heavy, fast, and groovy “Intestinal Wrap,” which features George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher of Cannibal Corpse. “Vitrified Earth” showcases Creeping Death’s increasing skills at songcraft, most evident with the cadence and phrasing of Alavi’s vocals while never neglecting the sick riffs. Toward the album’s end, there’s even a bit of a spaced-out atmosphere, with guitar effects, harmonies, and heady time signatures.
