Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Although Death Perception had been started in 2012, the band was fully formed by the spring of 2015 and we started playing shows that summer. Our current lineup came into place in the summer of 2019.
It had been a few years in the making with Nathan Fraser building up his previous band Slitsoul in British Columbia, Canada. After making the choice to move to Ontario, Nathan started piecing together what would become Death Perception.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
Death Perception comes off with a definite leaning to a groovy and thrash heavy sound. We strive to produce fast and heavy songs that hook you in and keep you listening and banging your head. While not breaking down doors on the technical side, we absolutely provide the perfect elements to get you moving and release the energy we all build up – in the mosh pit.
Bands that inspired us are: Slayer, Devildriver, Lamb of God, Behemoth, Nile, Whitechapel, Mushroomhead, Opeth, Gojira.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
Our music provides what many metalheads are seeking, a release of anger and aggression within a constructive sonic landscape. Tracks that all flow together perfectly to create an all-encompassing listening experience.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
We have 2 DIY albums, 'Death Perception' and 'Ensuing the Insanity' and the full-length album 'Ashes'. The first two independent releases were received very well during our first couple of years of supporting them through live shows. We signed with Wormholedeath Records for Ashes and have been extremely pleased with the results and how well our content has been received. It's really motivated us and gotten us back to the drawing board to create some more new tracks already.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
We have built ourselves a reputation around being a live band. With well over 100 gigs under our belts, two shows in Cuba, and an out-of-province festival slot, we can proudly make the claim that Death Perception is a must-see band to catch live. We recently held our CD release party in our hometown of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and it was a massive success.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
Death Perception are a bunch of hard-working artists dedicated to creating head-banging music and striving to put on the best shows possible. We are in it for the long haul and can’t wait for the next opportunity to go perform.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
We've already started putting together songs for our next album. We'd like to see just how far we can push Death Perception around the world and how much chaos we can create along the way. When things open back up from Covid you can expect to see us out there.
Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
You can listen to us anywhere you stream your music.
