My Epic – Viscera (*NEW-CD, 2006, Facedown)
1 Ghost Story
4 Wives' Tale
5 Open Letter
The captivating new release from My Epic sees the band building on the pivotal momentum of previous releases while still treading new ground musically and thematically. With Viscera My Epic reference the Latin term for the inner organs as the thread that runs through the tracks. The aspect of each song alluding to a human emotion tied to physicality makes Viscera My Epic s most heavily themed release to date.
Musically Viscera takes elements from the band s more ambient, ethereal spirit of Behold, and adds to them the post-rock, grunge influenced groove of Yet, which floods the EP with heaviness. Songs grow large on Viscera and leave lots of room to explore the human conditions of fear and courage, comprehension, and even memory loss.
Viscera is the first in a series of annual EPs, each of which will be supported with an annual tour.
