EPHEL DUATH premiere new song "When Mind Escapes Flesh"

Avant-garde heavy metal act EPHEL DUATH has teamed up with to premiere a new song "When Mind Escapes Flesh" from the band’s upcoming album, its first in five years, "Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness", out November 19 in Europe and 26 in North America on Agonia Records.

According to the magazine, the song is: "dizzyingly off-kilter, magnificently hypnotic, and massively intimidating."

Earlier released track, "Shaped By Darkness", can be experienced in a form of a lyric video...

 While the first single can be listened below.

Ignited by commitment and passion, "Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness" is a multi-layered hybrid of death metal, jazz and post rock, and a strong statement from a band never bounded by rules. With intuition set as the only significant parameter, EPHEL DUATH takes an uncompromising will to experiment, to a whole new level of intensity. "This album holds together all that Ephel Duath's music has touched in the last fifteen years and pushes its boundaries even further" - commentsDavide Tiso. "Lyrically the new songs dig deep in higher self subject matters, combining brutally visual imagery with a painfully honest soul searching quest."

Featuring 8 new songs and reaching over 50 minutes of total length, "Hemmed By Light, Shaped By Darkness" includes a unique line-up of: Marco Minnemann (KreatorNecrophagistJoe Satriani) behind the drums, Bryan Beller (DethklokJoe Satriani) on bass, lead singer Karyn Crisis (CrisisKaryn Crisis Band) along with the founder, guitarist n' songwriter: Davide Tiso.
