After releasing their debut full length last March, Memphis death metal outfit Prophasis are pleased to announce that they have signed to Imminence Records. On the signing bassist Ryan Katka stated, “It’s nice to finally be a part of something where the people are so friendly and take such a positive approach to the music and the band as a whole.” Guitarist Cody Landers added, “It’s awesome to have professional support, as well as a platform to share our passion with others who enjoy it.” With the signing announcement, the band’s full length debut, entitled Boundaries, will see a wider release on February 24th. While the album is already available from iTunes, AmazonMP3, Google Play, and Bandcamp, it will be added to all streaming services and the rest of the digital stores worldwide along with a Bandcamp exclusive bundle with To Be A King.
Prophasis are currently hard at work on their label debut EP that promises to be faster and more melodic while featuring a darker more focused sound that adds more of a melodic death metal influence into the band’s sound. On the current songwriting process vocalist Alan Ervin states, “The current songwriting process for this EP compared to the process of Boundaries is different in that, before it was mostly Brad (Wickham) coming up with drum ideas and Cody coming up with the riffs, whereas now we have more ideas coming from everyone on everything from song structure to drums to riffs.” With Cody adding, “This time around Ryan has had the chance to show that he can also be very valuable to the writing process now that he has been in the band during the pre-production process. It’s becoming more of a collaborative effort.” The band is expected to release the EP and do some regional touring later this year.
