Dead Earth Politics win Austin Chronicle's SXSW Award for Best Metal Band of 2012

Austin soul crushers DEAD EARTH POLITICS recently accepted the award for the Austin Chronicle's Best Metal Band of 2012 at last weekend's SXSW Festival. Though gracious in their acceptance of the prestigious award, DEAD EARTH POLITICS were nonetheless proud at having beaten out nationally renowned heavy hitters like THE SWORD for the honor.  A video of the acceptance can be viewed at this location

DEAD EARTH POLITICS burst onto the scene with the release of 2006 EP Mark The Resistance, followed by the much heralded The Weight of Poseidon full-length album in 2010.  DEAD EARTH POLITICS' sound has drawn comparisons to LAMB OF GOD, PANTERA, and IRON MAIDEN. The video for "Artistic License" from The Weight of Poseidon is now playing HERE.   

The Weight of Poseidon is streaming at   

DEAD EARTH POLITICS are currently working on material for the sophomore full-length, which is tentatively scheduled for a late 2013 release.
