'Death of the American Dream' Copyright 2011. All Rights Reserved. Produced by Corey Unger & Lies Beneath. Mixed by Corey Unger & Jim Fogerty at Zing Studios in Westfield, MA. Mastered by Jeff Lipton & Maria Rice at Peerless Mastering in Newtonville, MA. Lies Beneath is a five-piece metal band with influences ranging from thrash, to death-metal and hardcore. With classic dual-guitar attack, a crushing rhythm section, dynamic vocals and brooding soundscapes, this band creates an undeniable presence and demands captivation from any audience. Lies Beneath is a product of two different bands that were originally formed by guitarists Ben Serr and Jared Zipes. With the two founding members trading off on guitar and bass, the beginnings of Lies Beneath began forming amidst the trial-and-error of changing lineups. With the consolidation of these two outfits, Lies Beneath officially formed in 2005 with Serr on guitar and vocals, Zipes on lead guitar, with the addition of Steve Inoshima on bass, and Andrew Czegledi on drums. The band began heavily gigging the underground Long Island metal scene, quickly gaining a dedicated following. In the Summer of 2006, the band set out to record their first effort entitled 'The Eidolon,' a self-released LP featuring titles like 'Exposure,' 'Mind Inside The Massacre,' and 'Combat Ready.' Upon the album's release, Lies Beneath began experiencing new heights of popularity. Constantly gigging the underground scene, they appeared at some of Long Island and NYC's biggest clubs including Don Hills, The Knitting Factory, and The Crazy Donkey where they opened for Kittie and Walls of Jericho. In the summer of 2007 the band completed the roster by adding lead singer Nick Serr. In addition to being guitarist Ben Serr's brother, he is also the founding vocalist of the NY-based prog-metalcore band Engine., and brutal post-thrash group Resolution 15. With the addition of Nick's growls and soaring vocal lines, Lies Beneath was ready to unleash their crushing sound to new audiences. In September of 2007 Lies Beneath appeared at Locobazooka at the Tweeter Center in Mansfield, MA. Thousands of new fans caught a glimpse of some of the band's newest material when they shared the stage with Shadows Fall as they warmed up for Heaven and Hell, Alice Cooper, and Queensryche. With the help of producer Corey Unger, guitarist and founder of the seminal New England hardcore band Blood Has Been Shed, Lies Beneath has recently release their new full-length album entitled 'Death of the American Dream.'
