Swiss grindcore band Mumakil have entered the studio to begin recording their third full-length album. This is the band’s first record in four years.
The album is being self-recorded by the band at Terrier 5 in Geneva, Switzerland. It will feature 24 brand new tracks of brutal grindcore with more of a death metal influence than their previous release Behold The Failure. Tentative song titles include “Death From Below,” “Hailing Regression,” “Designed To Fail” and “More Meat For The Grinder.”
The band had this to say about the new material: “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 & death-metal with subjects like war, anger, pain, personal experiences and deceptions, and an overall theme about mankind’s permanent will to destroy itself.”
The album is untitled as-of-yet and is set for an early 2013 release via Relapse Records. The band plans to tour in Europe and Canada following the release. We’ll keep you posted when more details are released.
