Purveyors of low-end sewage death metal, FUNERUS are continuing work on the follow-up to 2003's "Festering Earth" for an early 2010 release via Ibex Moon Records.Commented bassist Jill McEntee: "We've been extremely busy working on this new album. It finally will see the light of day in early 2010. Sam [Inzerra], John [McEntee] and I have kept this album in the same vein that FUNERUS has always been! Also in 2010 we will be doing a U.S. tour in the earlier part of the year. Dates and other bands will be added later." "Festering Earth" features cover art by artist Chris Moyen, who has worked with DERKETA, AMORPHIS, MORTICIAN, BLASPHEMY, INCANTATION and many more. The debut CD includes nine "barbaric songs of total low-end sewage death metal, in the vein of ROTTREVORE, GRAVE, CARNAGE and BOLT THROWER."
