The first song from "The Entropy Formula" is available for streaming on SUN DESCENDS' MySpace page. The six-minute track "3 Corners of Hell" is the group's first new material to surface in the two years since the band's first full-length release in early 2006.
Commented Mem von Stein: "The music on SUN DESCENDS' new album is as relevant as the music on 'Possessed by Fire', which I recorded with EXUMER back in 1986. Let's just hope that the thrash frenzy of today won't be exploited as it was in the '80s, causing thrash metal to come to a creative full-stop. Otherwise I am amazed at the comeback thrash metal has made and I am very hopeful that the new SUN DESCENDS album will be received positively." More...

Vocalist Mem comments, "The new material is definitely in the vein of eighties thrash metal with traces of hardcore and a lot of guitar harmonies. It captures the spirit and sound of New York City's inspiring griminess."

New York City thrashers SUN DESCENDS have been forced to cancel their previously announced European tour due to accusations that were levelled against the trek's projected headliners, IMPALED NAZARENE, regarding their alleged neo-fascist views and lyrical content. IMPALED NAZARENE had to call off a portion of their European tour that was supposed to feature SUN DESCENDS in the support slot alongside MASTER.
Commented SUN DESCENDS vocalist Mem von Stein: "This has been a very hard blow for the band psychologically and financially. However, we refuse to give up and we will try to come and play in Europe before this year is over. We deeply regret these circumstances and want to state this situation occurred without us being at fault. We started working on new material for the follow-up to 'Incinerating the Meek', and are even considering recording the new SUN DESCENDS album in Germany."
