Mumakil Finishes Recording New Album "Flies Will Starve"

Switzerland’s maniacal grindcore death outfit Mumakil has completed the recording for a new LP, now bearing the confirmed title "Flies Will Starve," and set for release later in the year via Relapse Records. The following press release was issued about the album:

"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. Fans of Birdflesh, Misery Index, Antigama, Kill The Client and the like, get ready!"

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, "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.

"Customized Warfare" and "Behold the Failure" remain two of the most jarringly heavy and unrelenting death-grind albums I've ever heard.
