NilExistence Premieres New Song

Beware the ides of March, for crushing killer death metal awaits!

"Existence in Revelation" - the debut full studio album from NilExistence - will officially see release on March 25th, featuring a 12 page booklet filled with art by Seth Siro Anton.

Today we're launching an early salvo from the death metal assault with an exclusive premiere of the track "If Snakes Could Talk, My Words Would Slither." Listen in below!

Drummer/vocalist Kyle Kratzer (ex-Disfigured Dead) had this to say about the album title and lyrical content: "''Existence In Revelation' is based on the life experiences that have affected Dave Gruver (guitar/vocals) and myself during the writing period. The idea behind the title comes from how I personally felt when in the midst of a darker period."

He goes on to say, "When one finds himself in a 'revelation' type state, they have a few choices in which to handle the new information or realization they discovered; they may take the newly aquired knowledge and expand upon their problem/life, take nothing from the experience and brush it off, or stay stuck in the revelation itself (which is the route explored on the album.) As if in a bubble, one neither acts nor fails to act upon the new knowlegde, but instead remains within the revelation (bubble). The lyrics are based upon what I saw and learned within this revelation."

The new album was mixed/mastered at Hertz Studio (Behemoth, Decapitated, Vader) by the Wieslawski brothers in Poland. Pre-orders in various versions are available here and the track listing is as follows:

1. The Quietus
2. This Throne's Carved From Greed
3. Primordial Transgression
4. If Snakes Could Talk, My Words Would Slither

7. Tyranny Is Blind, And The Tyrant Deaf
8. Screams Form Silence More...

Disfigured Dead Disbands, Reforms Under New Name

After a change in the band's musical evolution and imagery, New York's Disfigured Dead has decided to move forward by including a new perspective to the band & a new band name.

After the recording of what will be the new band's debut full-length, the core members of Kyle Kratzer (Drums), Dave Gruver (Guitar), Ryan Kratzer (Guitar) and Isaac Dillon (Bass) are now joined by vocalist Mark Berlin to make up the newly formed NilExistence. Vocal duties during the recording were handled by Dave Gruver and Kyle Kratzer.

The band had this to say about the change: "We as a band have decided to carry on our music and work under a new name, and as a different band. We hear our music and see something more and Disfigured Dead just doesn't suit the bands concepts anymore. We thank everyone and anyone whose helped and supported us this far and ask you to come like our new page!!!"

The band has been tracking this debut full-length over the past year and will be handing over the record to the famous Hertz Studio (Decapitated, Behemoth, Vader) in Poland this coming March. More...
