Stereogum presents a brand new song from the Swedish death metal act STENCH. The song “Road” comes from the band’s upcoming full-length album “Venture” and is the second track to be oficially released. “Venture” will hit the shops on the 26th of September in Europe and 7th of October in North America via Agonia Records. “Road” can be listened to via THIS LINK.
The new album “Venture” features seven brand new songs reminiscent of horror infected old-school death metal. Jonathan Hultén (guitars) comments: “Venture” is a journey from the rawest, most monotonous cellar-darkness up to a desolate mountain top, from which you are thrown into the abyss below in a castanedian manner. If only but for a moment or even throughout the whole 38 minutes, be prepared to enter the other world. For four years we have been boiling down our material to the bone in pursuit of the essence of this type of music. Our conclusion is that the simple and repetitive riffing is holding the key, and is enhanced by more or less subtle choirs and sound textures. Primitive, yet atmospheric”.
“Venture” was recorded in Necromorbus Studio (Watain, Portrait) in Stockholm, Sweden. It will be available in a digipack CD, digitally and in a 12″ vinyl (black, limited picture disc and a special colour version).
