German death metallers SEPTEMBER MURDER are going to release their new album "He Who Invokes Decadence" on June 17 (Europe) and June 18 (worldwide). Once more, the CD has been produced by Jens Martinek at his Schmiedeberg 7 Studios in Rübeland, Germany and was mastered in early 2013 by Peter Neuber at Mega Wimp Sound, Berlin, who has previously done work with NASUM, VOMITORY, PRIMORDIAL and WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH. Likewise, Christian Herzer of GUULarts has taken the lead over the artwork again.
The track listing for the long player is as follows:
1. Under Severed Skies
2. Two Culprits, One Oath
3. Among Vultures
4. From Adoration...
5. ...To Deterrence
6. May Conviction Force Reckoning
7. In Celebration Of Mankind's Wretchedness
8. He Who Invokes Decadence
The brand new single "Among Vultures" can be streamed here:
From now on, the album is avaiable for pre-order at the official band store:
After the withdrawal of bass player Guntar Elsaßer in 2011, the band found an adequate successor in Marcus Kühne (also known from German death/grinders METZGORE) and concentrated on finishing the song material for the upcoming album. The band concentrated on a more open conceptual work and a refined sound to overcome boundaries drawn by genre conventions.
Vocalist Oliver comments the lyrical direction as follows:
"'He Who Invokes Decadence' is more than just a classical death metal parole. The title of the album allegorizes the cry for the most aggressive form of human affection - charity. Man's abasement of morality and violation of borders between the societal credo and the implicitness of its forcible participation are essential topics of the lyrics on this long player."
SEPTEMBER MURDER's full-length debut "Agony In Flesh" came out in 2009 via Maintain Records. It has been the frist collaboration between SEPTEMBER MURDER, Schmiedeberg 7 and Mega Wimp Sound Studios.
According to a press release, SEPTEMBER MURDER's "After Every Setting Sun" EP (November 2007) drew the attention of the European press with its explosive sound that has been described as a mixture of CANNIBAL CORPSE, ENTOMBED and SUFFOCATION.
