In a recent Riff Relevant Oldschool Sunday segment about Austrian extreme metallers PUNGENT STENCH [HERE], news was shared of an unreleased album.

That album, “Smut Kingdom“, as well as the re-issue of the band’s 2004 release Ampeauty, were both issued from Dissonance Productions this past Friday, March 13th. They follow the March re-releases of PUNGENT STENCH‘s ’For God Your Soul‘, ’Been Caught Buttering‘, ’Club Mondo Bizarre‘, ’Dirty Rhymes And Psychotronic Beats‘ and ‘First Recordings‘ albums.

Smut Kingdom“, which was recorded right before the band’s dissolution in 2007, now sees the light of day and with it, an unreleased visualizer as well. Check out the clip for the track “Persona Non Grata” below, a song with guest vocals from none other than L.G. Petrov (Entombed, Firespawn, Comecon)
