New Album "Venture" Detailed By Stench

Swedish death metal trio Stench will release the sophomore album entitled "Venture" on the September 26th in Europe and October 7th 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," says the band. 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.

"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) commented: "'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).

The track list is:

1. Archways
2. The Vast
3. Road
4. Small Death
5. Celebration
6. Way
7. Venture
