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
