Carbon 12 Records release: Manifesto Destiny 3-Disc Set
Manifesto Destiny collects the first three releases from the US-based martial project Epoch and comes in a custom black cardboard sleeve and also contains the limited edition Epoch embroidered patch. Strictly limited to just ten hand-numbered copies.
Manifesto Destiny Contains:
Purity & Revolution
The first full release from Epoch represents a combination of acoustic guitar, raw crunchy metal and electronics that go from subtle to harsh. Indeed, these elements can be found in single tracks, like Capitalism is the New Fascism, while tracks like Architects of the Third World and W.T.O. go straight into full blown beats. Other tracks venture into symphonic and militaristic anthems that reflect the governmental extremism arising on American soil despite the dilution of democracy.
Epoch invited an equally diverse and global range of artists to remix tracks from Purity & Revolution. Acknowledging the extremism in the socio-political landscape, [R]evolution delivers extreme interpretations of Epoch’s sound. “[R]evolution” features remixes by <dE/mutE> from Germany, Sz.Berlin from England, Thy Fearful Symmetry, R3m0rt and Psychepoppet from the US and Lenin from the Netherlands.
Epoch further explores the rise and fall of western dominance on Sanctimonium with songs such as the monumental track The Rise, or the grungy, swirling overdriven guitar track, All Heil the Chief. On Cold Wave, Cold War and Information is Power (NSA Ultra Mix) Epoch reveals the Orwellian transgressions that have occurred and sanctioned by our leaders. With the harsh track Disciples of Mars, Epoch blends even more EBM based electronics into the forefront of its sound. Along with overarching symphonics, Epoch achieves yet another album of blended industrial styles, while retaining its militaristic identity.
Limited Edition Epoch Embroidered Patch
Manifesto Destiny is available through the Staatkunst Bandcamp Page in a limited edition of 10 hand numbered copies in a custom black cardboard sleeve.
