Columbus five-piece Death Of An Era's name reflects their mission statement. Describing the metal world as we know as “a wasteland of the same tired breakdowns and unoriginal riffing,” they hope to bring something different to the game with a combination of technicality, lower-range vocals and chopped programming, while also maintaining a melodic element.

You can hear a sampling of what they have up their sleeves with this lyric video for “A Mother's Love.” The song comes from their upcoming EP The Great Commonwealth, which is set for release May 21 via Artery Recordings/Razor & Tie.
