    Said to sound like "Iron Maiden trading blows with Lamb of God", this follow up to the critically acclaimed "The Queen of Steel" will not disappoint the refined metal pallet. Here are a few things being said so far:

    "They still have that great metal sound, and they play the songs with confidence. The sound and technique are perfect, great heavy rock or lighter shade of metal. Feels akin to the old school bands of the 80s/90s. The midway point between modern standard metal and the hair stuff, when vocalists could hit high notes with impunity and talent. They have an Iced Earth feels, that’s what keeps coming to my mind. They have the same energy as this legendary band, and I can see them getting that ON, if they can keep this pace up. They have all the talent, hopefully they have the drive to match!"
    -- MetalMachine.Net

    "Almost one year removed from the band's righteous The Queen of Steel EP, Austin, Texas heavy metal groove thrashers Dead Earth Politics return with this 4-track following, "Men Become Gods", making everything right with the world. Or at least for the time being. There's always tomorrow and new darkness to be had, but for the here and now this one's a real deal banger and it bangs HARD! "
    -- Heavy Metal Time Machine

    "At the end of the day, Men Become Gods has the ability to enlighten you and grant you the sort of peace of mind that is hard to come by these days. In a world where all seems hellbent against us and the future looks ever more dismal, Dead Earth Politics provide a way forward and give you the strength to carry on. These songs are groovy and poignant, using big choruses to draw you in and powerful riffs to keep the listener hooked. Clearly on the verge of something big, I’m excited for what’s to come for Dead Earth Politics!"

Dead Earth Politics Austin, Texas

From the soul of the Austin metal scene, Dead Earth Politics is a blade that cuts like no other. Having been compared to the likes of Lamb of God, Iron Maiden, Pantera and other legends, this band strikes at many cores. In 2013 Dead Earth Politics was honored with the Austin Chronicle's "Best Metal Band of 2012" award. With this in heart, DEP continues to perfect their craft and make great art! ... more

Track Name: Casting Stones
Veins Marked with lashings, Flesh scarred by thrashings A nothing hero makes his way beyond the curtain
Time passed standing still. Raise your fist - time to kill Evil name on our lips; we are the lions, unleashed

Cast a stone through an eye of the eagle Lay your wares into his chest
Pluck the feathers from the wings of a bastard Lay his beast to rest

The bleachers roar with fervor, so much life - so much murder It takes one digit to set this nation free
Our feast under the sun. Punishment for the sake of fun! He lays his arms to the ground for the world to see

Cast a stone through an eye of the eagle Lay your wares into his chest
Pluck the feathers from the wings of a bastard Lay his beast to rest

sup upon boiled pain
peel the rind and begin again from these hearts to your fall place yourself across this maw

Sending the jaws of the beast on the fowl…
Track Name: Men Become Gods
Fires burn and images dance
Rusty paint smears across the sky
The shaman dabbles in his magic
Wakes the winged serpent sleeping in his eye

His heart pounds; a life giving stone
His blood weep but dare not lift a finger Titans looms against all horizons
The tree of life plants its roots in his flesh

See the stars swirling by – ascension in the blink of an eye
A single breath that will last forever
This is where Men Become Gods
A stones plants its seed in my chest - branches stain this altar of death Laid to rest at the footsteps
This is where Men Become Gods

His chest agape as the rain dances Pouring not from the sky but from a slab For the equinox, the serpent’s emergence, This pale faced god will never betray
Track Name: Ice & Fire
In the midst of decay I stand beside myself Surveying this pit that once was home Clouds gather and wail, weeping agony Mocking their call, I am alone

Force fed the power of darkness With the strength of those that fell Aligned with the forces of vengeance I will bring my oppressors hell and

Rain! Sheets of Ice & Fire

Abandoned trenches whisper their secrets in my ear Impressions remain where once they prayed Palpable terror permeates my being here
Now I mute their words this glorious day

Force fed the power of darkness With the strength of those that fell Aligned with the forces of vengeance I will bring my oppressors hell and

Rain! Sheets of Ice & Fire

This transformation
A precious circle
A band around our throats My evolution devolving into This reign of Ice & Fire
Track Name: Crimson Dichotomy
I wasn't but now I am
A single point that disappears
Only to reincarnate
As the blackest spot upon men's souls You cannot pray me away
For prey cannot pry this grip from its throat My fingers rend your virtue
And from its pulp can mold your sins

Beg to the sky - pray for your savior
To find I am your rapture
There are two sides - a light to my darkness That dwells far from here

I am and I will be
A thousand points that blind even the light Only to give vision
Of what my purpose truly has been
Beg for forgiveness
Refuse to learn from past trespasses
To the darkness we ride
On blazing steeds of crimson reverence

Beg to the sky - wait for your savior
To find I am your rapture
There are two sides - a light to my darkness That dwells far from here
Why should I do harm upon you
When so well you do it yourselves?

Name your grace and I will crown you
Raise your scepter and I will brand you Choose your throne and all will bow before you But speak with my tongue lest I destroy you

You weren't but now we be
The blackness of time lingers with emptiness Painless Nirvana
Embraces your heart with the fullest of nothingness Light or the void
It is up to your blade to decide the victor
This manmade dichotomy
Crumbles away now the ends are the same
