Connecticut progressive extreme metal act Priapism (one of the bands featured in last years Unearthing The Connecticut Metal Scene, Pt. 2) has emerged from the vibrant New England Metal scene as one of its most proficient technical progressive death metal act. Hailing from New Haven county, the band is made up of:
Paul Marak - Vocals
Alani Shaperow - Drums
Mike Schick - Guitarist
Mike Schupp- Frettless/Bass
Priapism has been playing and recording since 2001, attempting to shatter the boundaries of conventional metal ever since by combining influences of death metal, hardcore, funk-rock, and even jazz into their multi-layered, dynamic, and often brutal songs. The quartet isn't bound by any particular genre or style they're just dead-set on expanding their boundaries and playing the most powerful, hard-hitting music they can.
In July of 2012, label Ear One Productions released the band's debut album "Prey|Pay|Obey." The album is available at most digital retailers, like iTunes, and is streaming on Spotify. More information can be found at Ear One Productions and the band's Facebook Page.
Today, Metal Underground is proud to premiere the band's first music video for the track "Reset Or Cease."
Drummer Alani Shaperow describes the song and the video: "This video is our raw and powerful depiction of what our society/human race is made up of today when it comes to greed and power. 'Reset or Cease' is about understanding our screwed up ways and changing them for the better if possible."
The video was filmed in Norwalk CT at The Norwalk Underground. The videographer/editor is Charlie Winthal for Ear One Productions. Check it out here: More...
