Texas death metallers CREEPING DEATH will host a Gimme Metal guest DJ special this Wednesday, October 13th at 5:00pm ET / 2:00pm PT. Don’t miss it! Visit: www.gimmemetal.com and join the band in the live chat!
The special Gimme appearance follows the release of the band’s critically-lauded The Edge Of Existence EP, unleashed last week via MNRK Heavy. With a nod to crossover masters Iron Age, a bit of the tech-death of Cryptopsy, a foundation of forebearers Death, CREEPING DEATH summons a vibrant sound somehow both familiar and fresh. The Edge Of Existence EP further demonstrates the power, fury, and outright revelry at the heart of the band’s identity.
Captured at Homewrecker Recording Studio in Tucson, Arizona and produced and mixed by Ryan Bram (Gatecreeper, Bitter Rivals, Sex Prisoner), the six-song EP introduces three new certified hellraisers – “Relics From The Past,” “Humanity Transcends,” and the title track – alongside remade and revitalized versions of the three songs from the band’s 2016 debut EP – “Sacrament Of Death,” “Doused In Flames,” and “Skinned Alive.”
The Dallas Observer celebrates, “The perfect soundtrack to a dying, plague-ridden planet,” Revolver notes, “The butt-ugly vocals, gurgling guitar tones and straightforward, almost instinctual thrust provides a legible map for the moshers, but there’s enough happening on top to please OSDM addicts.” Adds Metal Injection, “Slow churning insanity soon ascends into all out chaos and war whenever CREEPING DEATH lets loose the dogs of hell upon an audience.”
The Edge Of Existence EP is available on CD, LP, and digital formats. Find ordering options at THIS LOCATION.

Originally hailing from Denton, Texas and now situated in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area, guitarist Trey Pemberton, Iranian-American singer Reese Alavi, bassist Eric “Rico” Mejia, drummer Lincoln Mullins, and guitarist A.J. Ross III comprises the group Revolver called the, “Power Trip-endorsed band leading the next wave of Texas metal.” They refused to let the 2020 pandemic destroy their momentum, even after COVID sidelined two of them for several weeks. The group emerged from lockdown with a punishing array of their most crushing material yet. Ross (also of Kombat and Torture Tomb, with Cole Crutchfield of Knocked Loose) made his recorded debut with CREEPING DEATH, adding another heavy dimension to their massive bellow on The Edge Of Existence.
