"Invocation", the latest album from German thrashers DEW-SCENTED, will be released in Japan on September 15 via Spiritual Beast.
Commented the band: "We are super-happy to have found a new partner for our album[s] in Japan and will certainly try to return for a third touring visit of the country at some point sooner or later, [as] we haven't played there since 2005!
"The Japanese [edition] of 'Invocation' will come with an alternate coloring of the cover artwork (sort of the 'post-apocalypse version'…) [see below] and include four (!) additional bonus tracks. The bonus tracks are [two original] songs, 'Recall The Pain' (instrumental) and 'The Death Of Common Sense', as well as two cover versions that we also recorded during the main album session, 'Slaughterhouse' by U.S. power-thrashers POWERMAD and the track 'Superstar Destroyer' by GENOCIDE SUPERSTARS from Sweden."
