With the release of Solipsist, the long-awaited, debut full-length from Los Angeles death metal faction, THE ZENITH PASSAGE, just a little over a month away, MetalSucks delivers the official new lyric video accompaniment to debilitating fourth cut, “Deus Deceptor,” for public feasting.
Issues the esteemed blog of the latest track, which comes as am interactive, 360-degree video clip, “THE ZENITH PASSAGE are no ordinary tech-death band – so it’s appropriate that the lyric video for their new single, ‘Deus Deceptor,’ is no ordinary lyric video. The clip is 360 degrees, allowing the viewer/listener to move away from the lyrics and learn more about the band’s new release, Solipsist. As a result, the video is just as forward-thinking and mind-bending as the song itself. Fans would expect no less from THE ZENITH PASSAGE.”

And if you missed it, sample “Holographic Principle II: Convergence,” still playing at Metal Injection at THIS LOCATION.
Slated for release on April 15th via Unique Leader Records with various preorder bundles available RIGHT HERE, the forty-minute Solipsist examines the idea of solipsism, a philosophical theory that the self is all that can be known to exist, anything else outside of one’s own mind is uncertain. THE ZENITH PASSAGE, which features within its ranks current and former members of The Faceless, Fallujah and All Shall Perish, builds upon this foundation, expanding into themes of nonexistence and a computer-generated fictional reality experienced by all of humanity. Solipsist demands that listeners join the band on their voyage to explore the unsettlingly complex and improbable world they’ve uncovered in this bold experiment, this gut-wrenching visceral transmission of disturbing intellectual revelation.
Solipsist was engineered, mixed and mastered by Zack Ohren (Animosity, Suffocation, All Shall Perish et al) at Castle Ultimate Productions with additional engineering by McKinney and Michael Keene (The Faceless) at Keene Machine Studios. Solipsist includes a guest vocal appearance by Fallujah’s Alex Hofmann, a guitar solo by Wes Hauch (ex-The Faceless) who also co-wrote a portion of seventh cut, “Hypnagogia,” a synth solo by Vikram Shankar and cover art by Ken Sarafin (Skinless, The Kennedy Veil, Archspire et al).
