Originally hailing from Denton, Texas, and now situated in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area, “Creeping Death is on an undying ascent” (Dallas Observer). 2021’s blistering The Edge of Existence EP further demonstrates the power, fury, and outright revelry at the heart of the band’s identity.
“We’ve freely admitted that we are a selfish band, in so much as we really only write music for us,” guitarist Trey Pemberton explains. “We make music that’s fun for us to play and that we like to listen to ourselves. After all, we’re the ones who are going to hear these songs the most, night after night.”
Produced and mixed by Ryan Bram (Gatecreeper, Bitter Rivals, Sex Prisoner), the six-song EP introduces certified hellraisers “Relics from the Past,” “Humanity Transcends,” and the title track. The new bangers sit alongside remade and revitalized versions of the three songs from their initial EP: “Sacrament of Death,” “Doused in Flames,” and “Skinned Alive.” Each track benefits from the current lineup’s chemistry, Bram’s recording skill, and the group’s merrymaking metal attitude.
