MUMAKIL Complete Work On Sophomore Album; Tour Dates Announced
January 31, 2013, 4 years ago
Switzerland-based death/grind maniacs MUMAKIL have completed the recording of their new LP, now bearing the confirmed title Flies Will Starve, set for release later in the year via Relapse Records.
Self-recorded at Terrier 5 Studio in Geneva, the Mumakil faction’s first album in four years will devastate grinders worldwide with twenty-four brand new tracks of wicked, precision grindcore with even more death metal persuasion than their previous full-length, Behold The Failure.
Stated the band, upon entering the studio in September: “This will be our best album in terms of production, riff quality, variation and songwriting. It is going to be a great mix between everything we love in grindcore and death-metal with subjects like war, anger, pain, personal experiences and deceptions, and an overall theme about mankind's permanent will to destroy itself.”
Following an arsenal of releases since the band’s 2004 foundation, the anticipated Flies Will Starve will be Mumakil's third full-length and second for Relapse, not including a split with Inhume on the label’s cult Slimewave 7” series. The album’s street date and other new info will be made available in the coming weeks, including tours of Europe, Canada and beyond in support of the album.
In the meantime, Europe is already doomed for a blastbeating this March, as Mumakil will rampage across the continent alongside Swedish grind allies AFGRUND for over three weeks.
