Influenced by bands like Death, Beyond Creation, Emperor, Gorod, Darkest Hour and Allegaeon. Æpoch will embark on an extended Canadian tour with UK death metal titans Bloodshot Dawn from April 17th – May 1st. Tour Dates and information available below.

Debut single “Tabula Rasa” can be listened to at this location.
The band partnered with The Circle Pit to premiere “Burn Them At The Stakes”, the album’s third single to air so far from Awakening Inception. On “Burn Them At The Stakes”, Æpoch channel a darker more sinister vibe than usual for the group that showcases another side of the band’s varied approach to old-school influenced progressive death metal.
