REPLACIRE was founded by guitarist Eric Alper in 2009. The band self-released their first full-length album ‘The Human Burden,’ in 2012. The ‘The Human Burden’s unique and wide-ranging material was an ambitious statement of intent, and cemented the band a thriving reputation as a must-follow heavy bands in the region. Following ‘The Human Burden’ release, the band toured extensively through the Northeast supporting the likes of BEYOND CREATION, HATE ETERNAL, MISERY INDEX, ARTIFICIAL BRAIN and more. Footage of REPLACIRE performing “Corridors of Resolution” from ‘The Human Burden’ can be viewed here.

What the press is saying about REPLACIRE: “Replacire are one of the sleeper acts of 2017. Making their label debut with the barreling ‘Do Not Deviate,’ this group has set the tone for modern, rhythmically-centered death metal. The technical work is in the cutthroat arrangements, which take hairpin turns amidst riding frenetic grooves, gaining momentum with each track until the runtime has been exhausted. The sparing utilization of piano / keyboards and clean vocals serves the band well as they don’t rely on the aesthetic for a juxtaposed effect, but pepper them in strictly on an as-needed basis. It’s time to wake up and hop aboard Replacire’s train.” – Loudwire
“Tech death is full of overproduced, clean production, and Replacire’s meaty, thick, and old school-like sound is one reason why I like this album so much. Do Not Deviate is techy and complex, but it’s first and foremost a crushingly heavy and filthy death metal record. And that’s awesome.” – It Djents
“Make no mistake about it, Do Not Deviate is definitely going to wind up in contention for a lot of year-end accolades come December. It’s just that little bit sharper, that little bit smarter, that little bit hookier, and that little bit heavier, than most of the competition.” – No Clean Singing
