Formed in 2013 by former members of With Dead Hands Rising, Reaping Asmodeia self-released their debut album, Poison of the Earth, a year later. The album was mixed and mastered by Zack Ohren (All Shall Perish, Suffocation) and received high press in the death metal community. The band spent most of that year touring in support of the album, playing shows all across America with the likes of Abiotic, Beyond Creation, Boris The Blade and many more. They also appeared at the Texas independence Fest, Orange County Death Fest and Austin’s Hoodang Festival. Their intense live show and unrelenting work ethic, made them the go to regional metal band in the Minneapolis area, having been chosen to support artist like Veil of Maya, The Faceless, The Contortionist as well as last year’s Summer Slaughter. With the signing to Prosthetic Records and the release of ‘Impuritize’ in February 2017, expect Reaping Asmodeia’s reach to expand worldwide…
"Reaping Asmodeia brings their own very unique and original blend of technicality, melody, heaviness, and great musicianship to a genre saturated with sub-par mimics and emulation. They bring something very new and refreshing to the table with a style all their own. This is definitely a band you must listen to and familiarize yourself with." -- Jaeson Bardoni (Arsonists Get All The Girls)
"Hailing from the same metal scene that has spawned the likes of Nehemiah and After the Burial and featuring members of With Dead Hands Rising and The Body Beneath, Minnesota's Reaping Asmodeia look to continue the legacy of ferocious and technical modern metal." -- Erik Thomas (Metal Review.com / Hails & Horns)
