Well, it's been seven years, but it's time for a new Decrepit Birth album! Decrepit Birth will be releasing Axis Mundi on July 21, which will be its first record with drummer Sam Paulicelli and bassist Sean Martinez. The album's guitars were tracked at guitarist's Matt Sotelo's home, drums were tracked by Ryan Forsyth at Private Ear Studios, the album was mixed and mastered by Stefano Morabito at 16th Cellar Studios, and the cover art was conjured up by Dan Seagrave (Morbid Angel, Entombed, The Devil Wears Prada).
Here's what Sotelo had to say about the album.
"We’ve gone through an evolution throughout the years. The last couple of albums we had, Diminishing Between Worlds and Polarity, were more progressive death metal. They were different from …And Time Begins, which is a different genre of death metal. It’s more brutal. I’m the type of guy who likes to experiment. …And Time Begins has no solos. It’s all really fast palm-muted riffs. The other albums breathed more with the guitars. I let chords ring out on Diminishing Between Worlds and Polarity. Axis Mundi is combination of all the stuff I’m into. I like it a lot right now. It’s more melodic. The riffs repeat intentionally. I want to have fun with these songs."
Oh, and you really ought to check out the brand new track "Epigenic Triplicity." It's exactly what you've been dying to hear after seven years of no new Decrepit Birth jams!
