THE ZENITH PASSAGE will be touring in support of their recently-issued Solipsist full-length, out now on Unique Leader Records. The forty-minute debut 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 guitarist/vocalist Justin 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). Check out THE ZENITH PASSAGE‘s recent guitar playthrough for “The Tenebrous Veil” at Gear Gods RIGHT HERE. To order Solipsist, got to THIS LOCATION.
THE KENNEDY VEIL — featuring current and past members of Decrepit Birth, Alterbeast, Abysmal Dawn, and more — released their critically-lauded Trinity Of Falsehood in 2014 and are readying to release a brand new full-length via Unique Leader later this year. Applauded for their torrid brand of “no-frills, modern death metal… heavily rooted in the speed and technicality of Origin and the fury of Decapitated,” in a near perfect review from Dead Rhetoric, THE KENNEDY VEIL‘s Trinity Of Falsehood was produced by Nick Botelho at NB Recording in Santa Rosa, California. Merging the teachings of DM pioneers like Deicide, Morbid Angel and Suffocation with the more refined, brain-twisting aggression of groups like Origin, Psycroptic, and Decapitated, together THE KENNEDY VEIL incites their own punishing brand of high-paced, intricately arranged death metal. No throwbacks, no breakdowns, no wanking, no trends. To order Trinity Of Falsehood, go to THIS LOCATION.
