And Hell Followed With Reveal Story Behind 'Proprioception'
April 28, 2010
Slated for North American release on June 29th, 'Proprioception' is the Earache Records debut of And Hell Followed With - the Detroit deathcore [Really? - Ed.] band who's sheer heaviness is straight out of the depths of hell itself. Filled with incredible displays of technical prowess over memorable songs that are reminiscent of old school death metal giants like Deicide. However, unlike most other acts of their ilk, much care has been given to crafting a dark, fully formed story that ties all of the songs together.

According to vocalist, Nick Holland:
"Following a dark story of gruesome imagery and gothic thematics, 'Proprioception' is a telling of despair and misery in the loss of one girl's hope in herself and the world around. Battling horrific images in her head throughout the progression of a severe drug addiction, said protagonist battles her own sanity and morality. The first three quarters of the album are each of her visions, each becoming more gruesome then the last while simultaneously becoming more and more realistic.

"When her last vision pertains to most contemporary human loss of compassion and care, she battles morality and logic as she struggles to find a reason to live. The last quarter of the album deals with the human desire to possess reason and meaning in existence and the sometimes seemingly illogical decision to carry on in what can appear to be a futile up-hill battle.

"The word 'Proprioception' means that the particles in the brain, without cognizant process, can understand(in more of a sense of programming then conscious thought) their relative positioning and worth/meaning in the universe around due to their comprehension of said programming(with or without a theological explanation of origin). The word reflects our desire to search for and understand our meaning and place in the world, even down to the smallest particles in our body possessing this desire.

"'Proprioception' is a story of battling hopelessness in the struggle for meaning, a struggle that we all have or will endure in our lives. End.

Quite a mouthful, huh?"

And Hell Followed With
are releasing their Josh Wichman-produced Earache debut, 'Proprioception' (featuring art by Godmachine) in North America on June 29th. Pre-order it along with some killer shirts and special merch bundles at this location.

And Hell Followed With
are set to return to the road this spring alongside Knights Of The Abyss, Burning The Masses and Those Who Lie Beneath as part of the "28 Days Latour."

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 2005
HOME TOWN: Glendale, AZ
MEMBERS:
Nick - Guitar
James - Drums
Dustin - Vocals
Griffin - Bass
Brian - Guitar

Hailing from Glendale, Arizona, the metal powerhouse known as Knights of the Abyss forges an onslaught of heavy and intricate riffing while adding a sense of melody uncharacteristic of most bands today. Guitarist Cody Bechtel says, ‘we aim to make music that is fun and easy to listen to but that also has an intelligent sense of musicianship and melody.’ The band’s unique style of intense metal has taken them to the forefront of the community and placed them among many other great artists on the Ferret Music roster.

Formed in early 2005 Knights of the Abyss has gone against the odds booking a majority of their own shows and tours while self releasing two sets of demo tracks. In the summer of 2006 the band hit the road for the first time on a self booked tour with heavyweights As Blood Runs Black (Mediaskare). In the winter of 2006 the band toured the west coast with friends Elysia (Ferret Music) and Molotov Solution (Twelve Gauge Records). During this tour the band proved their worth with a tight and energetic live show. In the summer of 2007 Knights of the Abyss embarked on their first full US tour and traveled to Europe on their own. With buzz heightening around the band Ferret Records decided to sign the band to their talent roster.

“We are very excited for what is to come and couldn’t be happier about working with a label such as Ferret that is always growing from integrity and hard work; not to mention an amazing track record” says vocalist Mike Manheimer. The band just completed recording their Ferret Records debut album with mixing handled by Andreas Magnusson (Scarlet, The Black Dahlia Murder) and mastering done by Alan Douches of West West Side Music. The debut Ferret Music release entitled ‘Shades’ is slated for an early summer release and Knights of the Abyss plans to tour extensively to support this album.
