New York City thrashers SUN DESCENDS, who feature in their ranks former EXUMER vocalist Mem von Stein, have signed deals with Khaosmaster Productions (Puerto Rico) and Twilight Distribution (Germany) for the U.S. and European release of their new album, "The Entropy Formula". Both labels will make the album available in their respective terriroties in the spring. The artwork for the European and U.S. editions will differ slightly and but will both feature illustrations by Sean Taggart.The first song from "The Entropy Formula" is available for streaming on SUN DESCENDS' MySpace page. The six-minute track "3 Corners of Hell" is the group's first new material to surface in the two years since the band's first full-length release in early 2006. Commented Mem von Stein: "The music on SUN DESCENDS' new album is as relevant as the music on 'Possessed by Fire', which I recorded with EXUMER back in 1986. Let's just hope that the thrash frenzy of today won't be exploited as it was in the '80s, causing thrash metal to come to a creative full-stop. Otherwise I am amazed at the comeback thrash metal has made and I am very hopeful that the new SUN DESCENDS album will be received positively." In other news, SUN DESCENDS has announced the addition of bassist KO Thunder to the group's ranks. Hailing from Istanbul, Turkey, Thunder joined the group this past summer.
