Mumakil Begins Work On New Album

Switzerland’s MUMAKIL recently entered the studio to begin work on their Relapse debut.

The follow-up to MUMAKIL’s debut full-length, "Customized Warfare," is being recorded in the band’s hometown of Geneva. MUMAKIL drummer Sebastien Schacher recently checked-in from the studio with an update: “We have finished with the drum, bass, and guitar tracks and will begin with vocals next. This new album will be even more brutal, faster, and 'punkier' than our first CD Customized Warfare. There will be less 'groovy-brutal-death' parts but more dark and crusty riffs supported by fast blast-beat attacks. We rather chose to propose the punk and brutal side of our music. The album we be titled 'Behold the Failure' and it will be a kind of an anthem to our great world in perdition.“

MUMAKIL has written roughly 26 new tracks for "Behold The Failure." Advance song titles include “Doomed”, “Brothers In Slavery”, “Black Sheep”, “Wish You The Worst”, “Mass Murder Institution”, and “Pigs On Fire”. "Behold The Failure" will see a Spring 2009 release date.

MUMAKIL has announced a number of November and December tour dates in Switzerland and France. A listing of dates and cities can be found with more to be announced soon. MUMAKIL has also recently released three new tracks via the Relapse Records Slimewave 7” series and CD compilation. You can get more information on this series here.

Here are the latest MUMAKIL tour dates:

November 22 - Geneva, Switzerland @ l’Ecurie
November 26 - Aarau, Switzerland @ Kiff (w/ Cryptopsy, Beneath The Massacre)
December 13 - Bern, Switzerland @ Improvisorium
December 20 - Belfort, France @ la Poudriere (w/ Blockheads, Knut)

Knut Parts Ways with Guitarist

Switzerland's Knut has announced the departure of guitarist Jeremy, who is leaving the group to concentrate on his grind project, Mumakil. Here's a statement from the band:

"This marks the end of an 8+ year partnership, and a big letdown considering the atmosphere that prevailed within the band and the amount of enthusiasm towards our latest performances. We can't help thinking that the best knut line-up is history. Touring but also writing a new record is now put in a different light, that's an understatement. What the future holds for Knut after 12 years of incredibly fulfilling activity, and what might be one too many changes in its shape and form, remains to be determined."
