Maehem News: CREEPING DEATH Announce North American Tour Supporting High On Fire And Power Trip

Texas death metal titans CREEPING DEATH will kick off a month-long US tour supporting High On Fire and Power Trip next week. The journey begins November 7th at Levitation Fest in Austin, Texas and will storm over two dozen cities upon its conclusion December 8th in Santa Ana, California. Additional support will be provided by Devil Master. See all confirmed dates below.   CREEPING DEATH will be touring in support of their smoldering Wretched Illusions debut, unleashed worldwide last month via Entertainment One (“eOne”). Reaping accolades from critics globally, Revolver notes, “Wretched Illusions doubles-down on the intensity, delivering ten tracks that coalesce high-velocity attacks with Lone Star State-styled smackdowns akin to Power Trip.” Lauds Decibel Magazine of the release, “Death metal’s new breed of old ghouls mutates vintage fringe into the modern mainstream. Leveraging the rhythmic latitude of thrash and hardcore,

CREEPING DEATH torque the genre’s thick guttural trademarks with a ramrod propulsion and knockout delivery that’s seemingly innate.” Adds Loudwire, “Everything about this is ugly. Like the aborted lovechild of Dismember and ’89 Bolt Thrower, CREEPING DEATH immediately raise the stakes for the wave of hardcore-infested death metal sweeping the United States.”  

Produced by Daniel Schmuck (Power Trip, Messengers, End Times) and mixed and mastered by Arthur Rizk (Ghostmane, Cavalera Conspiracy, Outer Heaven), Wretched Illusions is available CD, digital, and vinyl formats. Order you copy today at THIS LOCATION.

“Death metal’s new breed of old ghouls mutates vintage fringe into the modern mainstream. Leveraging the rhythmic latitude of thrash and hardcore, CREEPING DEATH torque the genre’s thick guttural trademarks with a ramrod propulsion and knockout delivery that’s seemingly innate.” – Decibel
 “Wretched Illusions doubles-down on the intensity, delivering ten tracks that coalesce high-velocity attacks with Lone Star State-styled smackdowns akin to Power Trip.” – Revolver”One thing can be said about CREEPING DEATH: they’re committed to their name… on the material from their upcoming new album Wretched Illusions, the band are exploring a moldier, more clammy-to-the-touch sound that oozes and lumbers as much as it rips…” – Kerrang
 “Everything about this is ugly. Like the aborted lovechild of Dismember and ’89 Bolt Thrower, CREEPING DEATH immediately raise the stakes for the wave of hardcore-infested death metal sweeping the United States. Let those knuckles drag on ‘Ripping Through Flesh.'” – Loudwire; 2019 Best Metal Songs…So Far
“The record fuses hardcore and death metal so seamlessly that it rarely feels like you’re listening to one already-defined type of music or another. CREEPING DEATH clearly dig the classics, but they spit their influences back out in a way that feels genuinely fresh. And every song on this album is such a ripper, that you’ll be banging your head too much to think about any of this boring technical stuff anyway.” – BrooklynVegan”…a formidable debut that ensures CREEPING DEATH‘s place near the forefront of the OSDM resurgence.” — Exclaim!
CREEPING DEATH are able to weave a meaty and enjoyable album that never feels stale or like they’re retreading ideas as the album continues. Paced excellently and with enough power to turn even the most timid of fans into a raging monster, Wretched Illusions is another tab for 2019’s victorious release list.” — Distorted Sound
