FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Albuquerque, NM Technical Death Metal band Tiwanaku has inked a deal with Bluntface Records for the release of their long-awaited debut album- Earth Base One
Tiwanaku (named after the famed ancient city in the Andes) is lead by Ed Mowery on guitar and vocals, the bassist/vocalist for the iconic Florida Technical Keyboard-driven Death Metal act Nocturnus in the 90’s, and picks up right where The Ethereal Tomb left off.

Exceptional guitar work by Ed and Michael Estes will permeate Tiwanaku’s music, which is sure to please any fan of the technical and melodic side of death metal. The bass on Earth Base One will be performed byChris Scales. Rounding out the rhythm section is world renowned drummer Mike Heller, who currently plays with Fear Factory and is also known for his work with NY Technical Death Metal outfit Malignancy.
Tiwanaku’s debut single “Today In Battle” is available for download from the Bluntface Records Tiwanaku Webpage, and features legendary Death Metal bassist Alex Webster (Cannibal Corpse).
Guest musicians on Earth Base One will include solos by Haniel Adhar (Markradonn) and former Nocturnus axe-man Sean McNenney, with Michael Black (Taipan) and Zack Begley on guest vocals.
Presales of Earth Base One are tentatively scheduled for late August/September 2017.
