Among the Dead

An Album By

Corpse

Listen now

This reanimated Corpse hails from Kentucky and unabashedly plays old school death metal – from way back when death was the subject matter, not a particular style. Corpse has been kicking around for 20 years, putting out demos once in a while, and this EP of new material is similar: only five songs. (A bonus disc is included with older demos, including some with their late previous singer, though.) The style is still predominantly thrash with solos aplenty and fierce skin bashing, with some death and doom influences. Think of a cross between Pennsylvania’s Sacrament and the U.K.’s Seventh Angel. The grisly graveyard scene on the album cover fits right in with today’s zombie fascination.

Ever Eden

The Haunting Sound of Hope

"Ever Eden has been this perfect culmination of us realizing what our journey has been and how to aim that as a message for other people." After years of introspection and coming-of-age, Ever Eden has embraced their own struggles, as haunting as it may feel, to create a community that's turned out to be much larger than the band itself.
