Having cut his teeth with Cynic, Defeated Sanity, and as front-man of the "Death To All" touring tribute to Chuck Shuldiner, it’s safe to say that Max Phelps, founder of EXIST, has proven himself a more than capable performer in the progressive death metal world. Phelps formed EXIST back in the late ‘00s releasing the "In Mirrors EP" in 2010 and following it up with the band's debut full-length, "Sunlight" in 2013 . 'So True, So Bound, EXIST's debut album for Prosthetic, is a concept album that takes a look at how language and concrete definitions create societal rules and guidelines. It’s a fitting subject in today’s quick to judge and dismiss world where a lot of communication is done through 140 characters. Bassist, Alex Weber, who was a touring member of Jeff Loomis’ solo band for his last touring cycle, along with Matthew Rossa in the second guitar position rounds out the line-up to this Maryland basted band. Though not appearing live with the band, Hannes Grossmann (Necrophagist, Obscura) provided drums on the album. Mixed by Nolly Getgood (Periphery), 'So True, So Bound' will see a worldwide release date through Prosthetic Records on June 9th. The band will tour with US to coincide with Gorguts.
