German death metallers SEPTEMBER MURDER have completed work on their sophomore full-length album, "He Who Invokes Decadence", for an early 2013 release. The CD was once again produced by Jens Martinek at his Schmiedeberg 7 Studios in Rübeland, Germany. The recording sessions started in March 2011 and were finished in the spring of 2012. The editing, mixing and mastering process was finalized earlier this fall.
A track from the CD, "In Celebration Of Mankind's Wretchedness", can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.
Commented SEPTEMBER MURDER guitarist Emanuel Brauer: "We've been working on our second album for the past two years. It took one year to write it and another on for the recordings and final production. By giving you first tangible information, we feel proud and relieved at the same time. This album turned out as the stiffest piece of work we've ever dedicated to, but rarely did a result inspired and spurred us likewise.
"Concerning our own concept of sound and songwriting, we wanted to tear down self-set boundaries and conquer new paths. Of particular importance was to push our creativity to the next level to show also ourselves in what degree we matured in our work and what our own musicality can offer us."
SEPTEMBER MURDER's full-length debut, "Agony In Flesh", came out in 2009 via Maintain Records. The CD was mastered by Peter Neuber, who had previously done work with NASUM, VOMITORY and WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH.
According to a press release, SEPTEMBER MURDER's "After Every Setting Sun" EP (November 2007) drew the attention of the European press with its explosive sound that has been described as a mixture of CANNIBAL CORPSE, ENTOMBED and SUFFOCATION.
