Album Notes
"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 Resolution15. 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."

Great production, great tunes, awesome concept! It's great to listen to a record from beginning to end & know it was intended to be heard that way! Well done.


These guys take you on a journey of unrelenting brutality! The songs and the emotion evolve as the CD progresses. This one will be in my iPod lineup for quite some time.


These guys know how to put a damn good album together ...great production!

I picked up this record from the band themselves at a show. They had A TON of energy and I could only hope it translated well onto CD. I took the risk and made the purchase not knowing how my decision would effect me... I bought THE ALBUM OF THE YEAR... Thars right kids, I am and will be a Lies Beneath fan for a long time to come!


a warning
yes, the riffs are brutal. so brutal that i'm sitting here wishing i had an umlaut key on this keyboard. but more importantly, this album strings together important currents in our society today. thinking man's metal. a cohesive, well executed, well planned album with a central idea behind it. congratulations.

Lies Beneath "Death Of The American Dream"
When I first received a copy of the record I was immediately impressed by the awesome cover art... then I loaded it on my CD Player, cranked it up and gave it the first spin of the day. My first impression was that the band took some smart risks as far as how they composed the music & on their strong political message! Then I gave the CD a second spin and started to pay attention to the overall texture of the album, this is when it hit me that Lies Beneath had created a unique hard hitting record! A few weeks later they unleashed the album at the Sindependence Metal Bash and it made me realize that they can transmit their recorded music on stage without losing any power!
