Offers Kerrang! of the vicious clip, "One thing can be said about CREEPING DEATH: they're committed to their name... on the material from their upcoming new album Wretched Illusions, the band are exploring a moldier, more clammy-to-the-touch sound that oozes and lumbers as much as it rips... The video for the band's latest track, 'Ripping Through Flesh,' is a visual illustration of that fungal growth. The video definitely has a narrative of bloodlust and escape that runs throughout it, complete with a machete-wielding psychopath. But more than that, it's the cave that surrounds the band during the performance shots - complete with dripping rock formations and pitch-black crevices a every turn - that truly grips the viewer and drives home the band's newfound aural grossness."
Adds guitarist Trey Pemberton, "We knew we wanted 'Ripping Through Flesh' to be the lead track on the new album right after we finished writing it. We really liked how it hits hard from the jump and doesn't let up. Filming the video in those beautiful caves was a one of a kind experience; we had a lot of fun bringing Reese's lyrics to life."
CREEPING DEATH's Wretched Illusions is a confident missive of percussive bombast. At once fast, challenging, decisive, and devouring, the band draws liberally from the template set by influential death metal titans like Grave, Gorguts, and Blood Red Throne along with the speed of early Sepultura and the epic crush of Bolt Thrower. It's all re-fused together and reflected through their own fresh and unique prism, making the record one of the most scathingly heavy outputs of the year. Produced by Daniel Schmuck (Power Trip, Messengers, End Times) and mixed and mastered by Arthur Rizk (Ghostmane, Cavalera Conspiracy, Outer Heaven), Wretched Illusions will be released on CD, digital, and vinyl formats.

The journey begins 7th November at Levitation Fest in Austin, Texas and will rampage its way through over two dozen cities upon its conclusion December 7th in Los Angeles, California. Additional support will be provided by Devil Master.
