STENCH: Reveal “Venture” Album Details

Death metal trio Stench will release their sophomore album entitled Venture on the 26th September in Europe and 7th October in North America via Agonia Records. The follow-up to the band’s debut opus In Putrescence has been in the making since 2010 and along with the artwork, “has accumulated enough power to swing ones senses to the sky” – comments Stench. The artwork – which is an important factor to the trio’s music – was crafted by Necromantic Art (Tribulation, Necrovation, Venenum, Decomposed) and can be seen below.

Stench - Venture

According to a press release, Venture features seven brand new songs reminiscent of horror infected old-school death metal, but with a otherworldly vibe which prudently creeps into the music and makes it even more adventurous. At times harmonious and melodic, at times dreadful and rowdy – the Swedes play their own game, picturing fear, anxiety and risk with their instruments.

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”.

The album 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).

I started this website in 2011 because I always had a burning passion of sharing music and keeping people informed about what's going on in the metal and rock worlds. If I am not sitting in a dark room in front of a computer, listening to some obscure music (or Whitesnake), then I am usually found at a concert or a festival interviewing bands (or drinking beer).
