Progressive death metal unit, Destroying the Devoid, which features Craig Peters of Deeds Of Flesh and formerly Arkaik, will unleash its debut full-length via Unique Leader Records in August 2016. Titled Paramnesia, the seven-track offering was engineered and produced by Peters at Carnivale Nocturno Studios with all mixing and mastering handled by Zack Ohren (Deeds of Flesh, Arkaik, Suffocation et al) at Castle Ultimate Productions.
Across 46 minutes of music, Destroying the Devoid‘s Paramnesia takes listeners through a dark exploration of the human psyche, specifically how an individual's personality and perception of the world are molded and ultimately dictated by their personal relationships and experiences. Through repeated interactions, once unique strangers gradually morph into fragmented pieces of one another, now completely interspersed. This is essentially Paramnesia: the inability to distinguish between fact and fiction.
"Society is constantly plagued by a world telling them what it is to be beautiful, successful. and what they essentially need to ‘be happy,' while taking advantage of the weak for their own selfish benefit," Peters elaborates. "Paramnesia, while not a concept album, plays off of different themes related to perception and how we are effected by the world around us. The three-part song ‘Beyond The Dark Veil' also deals with the emotional effect of death from three different perspectives."
