Exist Releasing New Album “So True, So Bound”

Maryland-based progressive/technical death metal outfit Exist recently announced label debut, “So True, So Bound,” is scheduled for worldwide release on June 9th, 2017.

Formed by Max Phelps, who cut his teeth as a touring member of Cynic and Defeated Sanity (and as frontman for Death To All, the touring tribute band to Chuck Shuldiner), Exist is rounded out by bassist Alex Weber, guitarist Mathew Rossa and technical drumming legend Hannes Grossman (Necrophagist, Obscura).

Today, Exist reveales a brand new music video for the track “Fault’s Peaks” – check it out below. Front man Max Phelps comments: “‘Fault’s Peaks’, the album closer, is probably the best overall representation of So True, So Bound and our sound as it includes all of our elements from psychedelia to heavy, dissonant riffing with a little improvisation sprinkled in. We’ve jokingly referred to this song as the ‘bleed etude’, as the right hand pattern is very reminiscent of the Meshuggah song off obZen, no shame there. This song was (and continues to be live) a real bitch to pull off technically, but it was worth it as we’re very proud of the composition itself.”

New album “So True, So Bound” was self-produced by the band and mixed by Nolly Getgood (Periphery). The album features eight tracks clocking in at just over 60 minutes and bears artwork by Sebastian Jerke (Ahab, Zodiac).

1. Take My Picture
2. Happily Ever After (For a Week or so…)
3. So True – Imitation’s Flattery
4. So Bound – One of the Herd
5. Peer Prejudice
6. To Sever the Strings (feat. Bobby Koelble)
7. Shade From My Fire
8. Fault’s Peaks

Next Saturday, June 3rd, Exist will begin a North American tour with Montreal-based progressive metal giants Gorguts.

6/4 Rochester, NY – Montage Music Hall
6/5 Detroit, MI – Loving Touch

3Teeth Posts Full New Album Online

LA industrial group 3Teeth today released “Shutdown.exe” on OMF Records. Fans can now purchase and stream the record at all digital retailers and indie record stores – listen in below.

Over the last few years, 3Teeth has quickly evolved from a provocative underground act to a band on the cusp of becoming one of rock’s most exciting new bands. 2016 found the group opening for the likes of Tool, and this year that meteoric rise continues with the release of 2nd full-length album, “Shutdown.exe.”

Self-produced by the band, mixed by Sean Beavan, and mastered by Howie Wienberg, the new album is a brooding record that seethes with relentless aggression and unrepentant attitude.

The band will embark on spring/summer tour in late May supporting the album, which kicks off with a performance at Blackest of the Black Festival in Silverado, CA and includes dates with Rammstein and headlining shows across the country.
