German death metal band SCYTHE has completed work on its fourth album for Witches Brew, entitled "Decay". "Whether you are getting pounded by the heavy old-school death metal of 'Bitterness' or floating away on an atmospheric composition like 'Pretending Not To See', this new masterpiece offers the perfect mixture between both extremes," according to a press release. "Add to that some oriental seasonings for a well rounded and varied fourth album somewhere between UNLEASHED and '90s VOIVOD.""Decay" will be released in the first week of October. Pre-orders are now being taken at the label's distribution, www.thebasar.org. Everyone placing a pre-order by September 20 recieves an older SCYTHE release free. Choose from "On My Way Home", "Poetry Of Illusions" or "The Process Of Rotting". Be sure to read the ordering instructions before placing the order. Check out two songs from "Decay": "Bitterness" (mp3) and "Pretending Not to See" (mp3).
