My Epic Viscera (Facedown Records). Viscera is a great example of a good band evolving into a great one. My Epic have always trafficked in a type of ethereal yet marginally aggressive form of ge-meets-metal. The band has stated they plan to keep pumping out an EP every year instead of trying to push out a full album every few years, and on the strength of one of the most honest, heartfelt, and gorgeous albums you’re likely to hear this year, there shouldn’t be too many complaints. My Epic have taken all the past elements of their sound and crafted the best release of their young career.
Released May 6, 2016. 4K. Viscera EP Tracklist. Viscera is a word that refers to the internal organs within a body. While the word is most often used as a synonym for the intestines, it can also be used in reference to the brain, heart, lungs, and stomach, collectively. The four songs on this EP each represent one of these organs: Ghost Story represents the stomach, Memoir the lungs, Wive’s Tale the mind, and Open Letter the heart. The album features one guest artist. Top Viscera EP scholars. Artwork Dave Quiggle. Gang Vocals Nate Washburn, Ryan Knowles, Daniel Wand & 8 more.
Opener Ghost Story and closer Open Letter show My Epic at their most unpredictable, both songs turning seemingly on a dime from intricate, reverb soaked clean guitar work to simpler, distorted chugs, without losing the momentum or impact of either section
My Epic is an American Christian rock band from Charlotte, North Carolina started in 2005. They released an independent EP in 2006 entitled This Is Rescue, and two successive albums and one EP with Dreamt Records entitled I Am Undone (2008), Yet (2010) and 2011's Broken Voice EP. In 2013, the band released their debut album with Facedown Records entitled Behold that has seen commercial success.
Viscera is the third extended play from My Epic. Facedown Records released the EP on May 6, 2016. Christopher Smith writes, "Viscera doesn't have quite the same lyrical mastery as Broken Voice, nor the musical epicness of Behold, but it is nonetheless a captivating and thought-provoking mini-album. Dylan O'Connor says, "if you have the patience to sit through longer songs with a slow burn, Viscera is a rewarding listen.

My Epic Viscera EP. Artist Info: Discography Genre(s): Indie Rock Album length: 5 tracks: 26 minutes, 18 seconds Street Date: May 6, 2016. Their albums demand attention and is best listened to front to back. My Epic have been responsible for some of the most beautiful post-rock music over the past ten years, and Viscera is no exception. The follow-up to 2013's Behold is as ethereal as it is aggressive. Ghost Story," an anthem about the worth of following Christ's call, makes excellent use of the screaming vocals of Everything in Slow Motion's Shane Ochsner. Likewise, "Open Letter" closes the EP with aggressively honest lyrics and coarse musical backing.
