When Austin Weber introduced our early-September premiere of a song and video from the new album by Stench Price, he referred to them as a “supergroup on an obscene scale” with a “highly adventurous” approach to grindcore that has enabled them “to rise above the majority of garden-variety grind in the modern era”. As further proof of the truths in those statements, we have another new Stench Price song and video for you today. The name of this track is “Living Fumes“, and it features Dan Lilker of the legendary Brutal Truth.
Stench Price is the brainchild of Siberian composer and bassist Peter Shallmin (Escapethecult, Kamlath), and in aid of his nefarious cause he enlisted not only Danny Lilker but also these other notable names from around the world:
France – Romain Goulon – Drums (Necrophagist, Disavowed, etc.)
USA – Max Phelps (Cynic, Exist, Death DTA Tours)
UK – Dave Ingram (Hail of Bullets, Benediction, Bolt Thrower, etc.)
Sweden – Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, The Grotesquery, Demiurg, etc.)
Australia – Karina Utomo (High Tension)
USA – Shawn Knight (Child Bite)
Siberia – Max Konstantinov – Guitars (Kamlath, Nebesniesnami)
The group’s self-titled album, which has already garnered big heapings of praise from reviewers far and wide, is set for release by Transcending Obscurity Records on November 30 in a variety of formats.
In the video you’re about to see, the raving mad face on the album’s cover wobbles from side to side, but the song will risk spinning your head all the way around. It includes megaton blasts of shrieking, meat-grinding destructiveness, accented by a predictably nimble bass performance, but a lot of other unpredictable things happen as well, things that you normally won’t find within a light year of your typical grindcore onslaught. As surprising and unorthodox as the song’s twists and turns are, however, this freaky amalgamation works… and it works very well.
