Dead Empires Premiere New Song “Slay Rider” From Upcoming New Album “Designed to Disappear”

Known as an instrumental band, Dead Empires debut new vocalist and knob-twiddler Jason Sherman of prog-death freaks Torrential Downpour. Sherman adds a whole new layer of darkness and danger to the sound, via his wide range of voices and his palette of electronics/noise.

Today we premiere the video for the song “Slay Rider” from Designed to Disappear, streaming below.

Designed to Disappear was recorded and mixed by Scot Moriarty at Backroom Studios in Rockaway, New Jersey. It was mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music (Mastodon, Every Time I Die). The album radiates color and texture: Sherman’s vocals jump from deathly growls to soulful clean vocals; guitarist John Bryan’s fingers bleed rock n’ roll twang as well as metal shred; bassist DJ Scully (also a member of The Number Twelve Looks Like You and Black Table) commands with a massive, distorted tone; drummer Phil Bartsch blasts and grooves seamlessly.

Founded in the Hudson Valley of New York in 2009, Dead Empires began with 2010’s Monuments EP and followed it up with Waiting in Waves (2012) and Secret Snakes/Silent Serpent (2015). Third full-length Designed to Disappear sees the band reinvented with the arrival of new frontman Sherman, and is a must for fans of Mastodon’s rock majesty as well as The Dillinger Escape Plan’s radical gear-shifting.

The album art was created by Revolution Dream Design.

Tracklist:

1) Spectacular Ruin

2) The Form

3) Slay Rider

4) Reverse Speak

5) A Summertime Song

6) Ones and Zeros

7) Ergot

8) Designed to Disappear

Lineup:

Jason Sherman – vocals, keys, noises

John Bryan – guitar

DJ Scully – bass

Phil Bartsch – drums

Guests:

John Carbone (Moon Tooth) – spoken words on “Ergot”

Jason Volpe (Torrential Downpour) – piano on “Reverse Speak”

Graven To Release New EP “Heirs Of Discord” In 2018

Extreme metal outfit Graven – formed in the ashes of Swarm Of The Lotus – makes its destructive return, ending a four-year hiatus with the construction of a new EP titled Heirs Of Discord for release in 2018.

With its members currently located in Arizona, Maryland, New Jersey, and Florida, Graven initiated the recording sessions for Heirs Of Discordlast week, having traveled from their various current residences around the country to lay down tracks at Pristine Audio And Video in St. Petersburg, Florida with engineer Dee Blume, who will also mix and master the record. Teddy Patterson (Burnt By The Sun, Human Remains, Gridlink) has joined the lineup, and in addition, original Human Remains guitarist Stephen Procopio will appear on a cover of “Human” from Human Remains’ ageless Using Sickness As A Hero.

Issued Graven from the studio, “The time has come to officially announce what we’ve been working on for a while. Talks started earlier this year about reuniting to get this done and it hasn’t been easy, as all of us live in a different part of the country now. Pre-production has been lengthy, involving passing demos back and forth via email, until we felt confident we were ready. Our longtime friend Teddy Patterson (Burnt By The Sun, Human Remains, Gridlink) will be joining us for the album and lending his talent in the bass department. His tracking will be done at Backroom Studios with engineer Kevin Antreassian of The Dillinger Escape Plan. We are beyond stoked on everything and after a four-year hiatus, we are happy to be back and making music again!”

Following the disbanding of Swarm Of The Lotus in 2010, three of its members established Graven , reworking the lineup and moving forward with a more extreme approach, bridging the crushing sludge/metallic hardcore explosiveness of the former act with more guttural death, grind, and doom devastation. Graven began to play live in various lineup incarnations in 2011, and self-released their first EP, The Filth Will Cleanse, in November 2012. They recorded two songs for a three-way split release with Burn Everything and Reckoner for Dullest Records which was released in May of 2014, however Graven went on hiatus in late 2013, leaving at least five songs on the table which were never recorded. Some of this material has been resurrected and reworked, and will finally see the light of day as part of Heirs Of Discord.

The Heirs Of Discord sessions will continue at various studios over the next several months, completed with artwork by Unexpected Specter, and released digitally and on vinyl sometime mid-2018, with select live appearances also being scouted out for late next year, following the release.

Heirs Of Discord Track Listing:
1. I Dreamt You Were Dead
2. To Ravage And Absolve
3. A Failed Mask
4. Thieves Of Rotted Ilk
5. Backwards To Oblivion
6. Human (Human Remains cover)

Graven:
Peter Maturi – guitars/vocals
Chris Csar – drums
Jason Borowy – vocals
Teddy Patterson – bass
