Formed 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 artists like Veil of Maya, The Faceless, The Contortionist as well as last year's Summer Slaughter. With the signing to PROSTHETIC and a new album planned for Summer 2016, expect REAPING ASMODEIA's reach to expand worldwide.
"Technical audio madness created and performed by Minnesota's finest! Check it!" -- Alex Erian (Despised Icon)
"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)
"If you are a fan of well constructed, aggressive, intelligent metal with more relentless drumming from Daniel Koppy (ex: With Dead Hands Rising), you will love Reaping Asmodeia" -- (Sick Drummer Magazine)
"Not concerned with trends or what's cool at the moment, Reaping Asmodeia are setting themselves apart in the midwest metal community. Their brand of metal is fast, technical, unrelenting, and back-boned by the best metal drummer in this part of the country. Combined with touring experience from members' previous bands, they understand what it takes for an extreme metal band to make their mark." -- Brad Gunnarson (Midwest Movement Magazine)
"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 (MetalReview.com, HailsAndHorns.com)
