Today, On Death and Cosmos – the new EP from progressive avant-garde metal band Ephel Duath – will be released for the North American territory.  As quoted by Decibel Magazine, the EP is “one of the most impenetrable chunk of music offered by any band this year (…) there’s metal being shaped here in a way no one has before.” Continuing to be one of the most unclassifiable acts in regard to metal genre, the band is deeply proud of seeing the EP being finally released in the US, after the initial European release date in June. Mastermind and guitarist Davide Tiso commented: “It was impressive to see the amount of European press we got with just three songs. Now that we are seeing the same thing happening in the US, it feels like we have the chance to celebrate this fortunate EP twice!

Ephel Duath had the pleasure of working with producer and studio owner Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal/ex-Morbid Angel) behind the mixing board of On Death and Cosmos. As a result of this cooperation, Erik Rutan has prepared a video in which he discusses his own view on the new EP and talks about working with the band.

The EP will be released on the US market by Agonia Records via Sony RED distribution as: digital download, digipack CD and (for the first time in Ephel Duath‘s career) vinyl, strictly limited to 300 copies along with a digital download card.

After fulfilling their contract with Earache Records in 2009, Italian progressive metal band Ephel Duath disappeared for a bit. In 2011, songwriter and guitarist Davide Tiso announced that he had assembled a new Ephel Duath line-up and signed a deal with Agonia Records. Boasting a formidable roster of Tiso, vocalist Karyn Crisis, bassist Steve DiGiorgio (Death, Autopsy, Testament), and drummer extraordinaire Marco Minnemann (Adrian Belew, Necrophagist, Kreator), Ephel Duath hit the studio to record a new EP titled On Death and Cosmos.
