Texas’ favorite death metal practitioners CREEPING DEATH today unleash their new single, “The Common Breed,” with an accompanying video. The track comes by way of the band’s Boundless Domain LP, set for release on June 16th via MNRK Heavy.
A sophomore slab of spectacular weight, dimension, and might, Boundless Domain was produced by Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz (As I Lay Dying, The Acacia Strain, Underoath) and is a certified ripper, top to bottom. In the wake of the passing of local heroes Riley Gale of Power Trip and Wade Allison of Iron Age, the band — guitarist Trey Pemberton, singer Reese Alavi, bassist Eric “Rico” Mejia, drummer Lincoln Mullins, and guitarist A.J. Ross, III — found themselves digging back into some of their metallic hardcore favorites. Boundless Domain boasts future death metal classics like the super heavy, fast, and groovy “Intestinal Wrap,” which features George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher of Cannibal Corpse. “Vitrified Earth” showcases CREEPING DEATH‘s increasing skills at songcraft, most evident with the cadence and phrasing of Alavi’s vocals while never neglecting the sick riffs. Toward the album’s close, there’s even a bit of a spaced-out atmosphere, with guitar effects, harmonies, and heady time signatures.
Comments Pemberton on “The Common Breed,” “This music video perfectly encapsulates the energy of a CREEPING DEATH show. Making it was a blast, we appreciate all our friends and family coming out and acting a fool for us.”

CREEPING DEATH is on a quick and furious ascent from the underground summoning a vibrant sound that is somehow both familiar and fresh. Their initial outburst, 2016’s three-song Sacrament Of Death, introduced them to death and thrash metal audiences, followed two years later by the Specter Of War EP, and the following year saw the release of their debut LP. 2021’s The Edge Of Existence EP further demonstrated the power, fury, and revelry at the heart of their identity. Tours with High On Fire, The Acacia Strain, Rotting Out, Terror, and The Warriors have spread the CREEPING DEATH message. Crowds succumbed to the group’s combination of endlessly catchy riffage, precise percussion, and storytelling lyrics. The band repeatedly delivers a relentless bludgeoning summoned from the furthest reaches of the genre’s past, present, and future. A triumphant celebration of the style itself, the Lone Star State fivesome whips up gruesome riffage and Southern grooves with an improbable cathartic glee.
