Detroit’s rising technical death metal outfit, As They Sleep, has posted a brand new song on MySpace, “Oracle of the Dead”, taken from the band’s Solid State Records debut, Dynasty, which is slated to hit stores on November 23rd.  The new track can be streamed now at: www.myspace.com/astheysleep, for a preview of the pulverizing precision that can be expected on the band’s sophomore album.

“One of the darkest, fastest, grittiest songs on the new album, ‘Oracle of the Dead’ is relentless,” explains vocalist, Aaron Bridgewater.  “It is sure to satisfy your death metal taste buds!”

Dynasty is a complex record, with a conceptual focus on the rise and fall of empires, and lyrics that touch on ancient Egypt, ancient Rome, and Greek mythology.  It was mixed by powerhouse audio wizard, Jason Suecof (All That Remains, Chimaira, Demon Hunter), and delivers a package of brutally heavy and savagely technical death metal of the highest order.

The track list for Dynasty is… 1. Oracle of the Dead 2. To the Republic 3. The Third Reich 4. Bedlam at the Nile 5. The Darkest Ages 6. Ritual 7. The Offering 8. Attila 9. Poseidon 10. God of War 11. The Unseen             

Dynasty can be pre-ordered now at: http://www.zambooie.com/solidstate/detail.tpl?sku=SSRCD26491&cart=128534586119100, and a special Dynasty CD/t-shirt combo can be pre-ordered at: http://www.zambooie.com/solidstate/detail.tpl?sku=SSRCOMBO26491&.
