Swedish Death Metal Unit DECOMPOSED have announced the forthcoming release of Wither, the band’s third full-length album. Wither will be released October 3 on Mexico’s Chaos Records. New songs “By Nothingness Crowned” and “Submerged” are streaming at the following link https://chaos-records.bandcamp.com/album/wither.
Wither is uncompromising, riff-driven Swedish Death Metal that proudly follows in the giant footsteps of genre leaders DISMEMBER, ENTOMBED, and the like. Wither was recorded in mid-2015 by composer/founder Jesper Ekstål along with drummer Emil Leijon in Studio Blastbeat in Sundsvall, the same studio in which the previous albums were recorded. The album will be available on CD and vinyl formats.

Sweden’s DECOMPOSED grew into a band in 2010, shortly after being conceived as a pure one-man Death Metal project. A year later the Stench of Death demo was recorded, which led to the self-titled debut album the following year. Two years thereafter the follow-up, entitled Devouring was released, a much more mature creation focused on darkness, horror, and madness.
After a few live performances and quite a few internal struggles, DECOMPOSED had to cease to exist as a live band. All members left, and only composer/founder Jesper Ekstål remained. The work on the third chapter Wither was well under way during this period, and it continued during obstacles of every kind.
