Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Epic Death was started by Dennis Dorsett aka Guitar Vamp who played for the band NeverDead prior to starting Epic Death. His vision for Epic Death was to bring death, thrash and black metal together to create a brutal black metal band. He then asked Becky aka Mistress Demona to bring the creepy keyboard rhythm to the band and not long after Forest Holt aka Ulfr joined the band to create the core of the band. Unfortunately the band has had it's run in with drummers who aren't able to keep up with what the core members expect out of them and we are seeking a drummer who is just as dedicated and enthusiastic as us.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
We are black metal with the influence of death and thrash metal. We are highly influenced by Death, Slayer, Deicide, Dimmu Borgir and Cradle of Filth.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
We have been told many times that if one truly loves metal they should own Epic Death music. In fact the original guitar player, Ross the Boss Friedman, of Manowar said, "if you love metal then you should embrace Epic Death".
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
We currently have two singles released: Vendetta and Screams from ValHalla. We have had many requests from radio stations in the UK, Mexico, Spain, Romania and Poland as well as the United States who have had listeners request our songs.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
We have played a few live shows and intend to have a full year booked once we find a dedicated drummer.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
We believe in networking and communicating with our fans as well as labels, zines and promoters. Each of them are extremely important to us as they are who can make us or break us as a band. We believe that our unique sound is a great reason to have interest in Epic Death.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
We will be releasing our 5 song EP "The Dark Side" very soon as well as working on a full CD that will be released the end of 2011 beginning of 2012.
