Detroit’s emerging technical death metal group, As They Sleep, has posted an album trailer on YouTube in anticipation of their Solid State Records debut, Dynasty, which is slated to release on November 22nd.  The new trailer for the punishing concept album about the rise and fall of empires throughout history can be seen at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyCGV19G-fg.

Dynasty will hit stores later this month, delivering a package of brutally heavy and savagely technical death metal, tied together with the help of powerhouse audio wizard, Jason Suecof (All That Remains, Chimaira, Demon Hunter).

The track list for Dynasty is…
1. Oracle of the Dead

3. The Third Reich
4. Bedlam at the Nile
