EQUIPOISE – Prog-Death Unit (Ft. Beyond Creation, Inferi, ex-The Faceless, etc.) Launch “Alchemic Web of Deceit” at Invisible Oranges

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based technical/progressive death metal project Equipoise recently announced the upcoming release of their debut full-length, Demiurgus. The album is set for release on March 8th through The Artisan Era. It is the follow up to the group’s 2016 heavily praised EP, Birthing Homunculi, whose material makes it’s way onto Demiurgus in a re-worked fashion far beyond their initial form. 

Equipoise features an amalgamation of well-respected musicians within the technical death metal community from Pennsylvania, Illinois, Missouri, Denver, and Quebec. The band’s members play in established well-known acts including Beyond Creation, First Fragment, ex-The Faceless, Inferi, Wormhole, NYN, and more. Fans of Gorod, Inferi, Necrophagist, Vale of Pnath, and Death will appreciate all Equipoise – Demiurgus has to offer.

Bandleader Nick Padovani comments on Equipoise as “Playing a melodic brand of technical/progressive death metal, we like to make frequent use of orchestral elements and flamenco guitar, as we feel good music shouldn’t be pigeonholed by any one sound.”

Today the band partnered with Invisible Oranges to premiere the album’s second single, “Alchemic Web of Deceit”. 

Invisible Oranges comments on the premiere of “Alchemic Web of Deceit”
“More so than the wizardry of guitarist Padovani’s compositions or the baffling dexterity of his six bandmates, the defining quality of Demiurgus may very well be the tangible fun the band has creating this insane music together. The record is so over-the-top and so ridiculous in scope, yet simultaneously so tastefully refined, that there’s little choice but to shake your head and smile. Before long, though, and through fluid progressions of staggering proficiency, the acoustic guitars from the song’s introduction reappear to conclude “Alchemic Web of Deceit,” guiding the listener gingerly by the hand toward home. These acoustic segments represent a touchpoint of familiarity after an exhausting but thrilling journey while the song’s elements remain precisely aligned in perfect balance.”
