Following the acclaimed last album, ‘Testimonio de Bautismo’, the death metal barbarians STILLBORN return with a new material to be released under the banner of Godz Ov War Productions. On 12 March 2018, a new mini-album titled ‘Crave for Killing’ will be released, and it will contain four brand new tracks and a re-recorded version of the title track known from the debut demotape ‘Mirrormaze’ released nearly 20 years ago. Also, check out the track titled ‘To Be’, made available via SoundCloud, below:
The release will be available in three strictly limited formats: as a standard jewel case CD (333 copies), 12”LP (222 copies) and MC (111 copies). In total, there will be 666 physical copies and digital download available on the release date at the label’s Bandcamp profile. You can already pre-order some elements of this limited edition puzzle from the label’s website at: http://www.store.godzovwar.com
‘Crave for Killing’ was recorded at the turn of the summer and autumn of 2017, and the production, mixing and mastering duties were handled by the band’s longtime bassist, Ataman Tolovy.
The artwork and the graphic design of all the formats of ‘Crave for Killing’ were created by the tireless Maciej Kamuda, this time delivering a uniquely ascetic form and an extremely direct message.

If you want to find out how much hatred there still is in STILLBORN, check out a new track titled ‘To Be’ which has been made available for streaming below.
The ‘Crave for Killing’ EP contains slightly over 20 minutes of music, but it definitely is the most mature stuff in the band’s discography. It perfectly corresponds to the ‘Testimonio de Bautismo’ album – on the one hand, it reveals distinct inspirations drawn from old school black thrash, but on the other hand it closely follows up on the band’s earliest accomplishments known from their demotapes or the debut album titled ‘Satanas el Grande’. Furious riffing, blasting drums, bestial vocals and uncompromising lyrics topped with Ataman Tolovy’s raw production. As always, Stillborn don’t tend to avoid brutality, vulgarity and straightforward message, but they are also capable of slowing down, taming their explicit madness and making the listener reflect upon the latter. Four premiere tracks plus a re-recorded version of the title ‘Crave for Killing’ are an excellent bridge between the band’s past and present in their musical accomplishments. Stillborn don’t lay down their weapons, quite the contrary, they continue to painfully punch the slaves of moral doctrines and spit venom into the face of religious fanatics!
