The Lurking Fear are streaming their first single “Winged Death”. The version available below is the one set to appear on the group’s upcoming 7″ self-titled EP. Here’s what they had to say about it:
“So, here is the first full blast of pure death metal filth for you maniacs, taken from the 3-track self-titled debut 7” EP! Winged Death is our little death metal epos about hungry Lovecraftian insects devouring you from the inside out. It has all the different elements of The Lurking Fear, the fast, pounding death metal mayhem, the slow, creepy horror/doom parts and howling screams of terror. Straight out of our coffin!”
A different version of it will be included on the group’s upcoming full-length debut Out Of The Voiceless Grave. The effort is currently being finished up at Welfare Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden. The Lurking Fear issued the following statement regarding the record:
“We are in the middle of wrapping everything up in the studio and have just started the mixing process for the 11 tracks we recorded. It’s sounding nasty and raw, just the way we want it! The record is called Out Of The Voiceless Grave and that title sums up what the album and actually band are all about.
Our idea is that you get a glimpse of the horrors spewing out from our metal grave of interstellar death. The album is basically our Vortex spawn, a beast with eleven heads, all ready to devour you! We are very pleased with how it sounds right now, as the guys at Welfare Sounds understood our concept immediately and have managed to capture some pure death metal filth on tape!”
Pre-orders for the EP will be available soon following a delay at the pressing plant. The full-length has been scheduled to hit stores on August 11th through Century Media. More details will be posted as they become available.
