A release date for Bleeding Fist’s new compilation, Death’s Old Stench – The Deathcult Sessions, has been set for 4 March 2014. With this release, the Slovenian chaos black metallers open up their crypt to reveal an arsenal of unreleased songs from the years 2011-2013. The compilation will be released by Moribund Records.
In view of the new release, vocalist Hellscream had the following to say: Death’s Old Stench is Bleeding Fist’s strangest, most obscure, and most esoteric effort. It’s really different from what we’ve done up till now, but in a way, it describes perfectly one of darkest times in our life as a band and as individuals. After the departure of [guitarists] Angelus and Occultus, we thought whether to release this album, because it was incomplete and in a partial demo form, so we decided in 2013 to finish this work and release it as raw and fucked-up as it was when we last left the studio. So, this is not really a new Bleeding Fist album, but a strange and alchemic occult statement to honor our master Satan.”
The 12 tracks that comprise this compilation present a different side of Bleeding Fist, one less manic and chaotic but more classically grim and ghastly. Still characteristically Bleeding Fist, this special collection serves as a haunting precursor to their next Moribund album, of which seven songs were recently written as “the result that came out of a weekend drenched in alcoholic rites, a sick-to-the-bone old black/thrash metal monstrosity”.
In other news, the band welcomes new guitarist Jex, who replaces the aforementioned Angelus and Occultus, and who has contributed to those aforementioned seven songs slated for the band’s next full-length. The band’s statement reads: “A long span of silence is behind us. But as you know, the sickest intents grow in silence and solitude.”
