Old School Swedish Death Metal legends WOMBBATH will release Downfall Rising, their first album in 22 years. The album will be released jointly in North America on Dark Descent and Pulverised  August 21. Pulverised will release the album in all other territories on August 7. Downfall Rising follows the 1993 classic: Internal Caustic Torments.

New song “Underneath the Rotten Soil” is now streaming HERE. An album teaser is also available at this location or below:

Downfall Rising was mixed by Jeramie Kling and mastered by James Murphy (Disincarnate, ex-Death, ex-Testament, ex-Obituary, etc).  The revamped WOMBBATH lineup is anchored by sole remaining member/guitarist Håkan Stuvemark (Skineater) and also includes vocalist/bassist Jonny Petterson (Ashcloud, Syn:drom), guitarist Al Riglin and drummer Henrik Åberg. Drumming on the album itself was performed by Infernaeon/The Absence member Jeramie Kling. Taylor Nordbert (Infernaeon) guested on guitar as well.

Having been around since 1990, Wombbath was without a doubt part of the legendary Swedish Death Metal scene that came to influence bands from around the world, and still is to this day. After a few releases including the classic full length Internal Caustic Torments, they disbanded. After years of playing in different bands (In thy dreams, Skineater etc.) original member Håkan felt the urge to play buzz saw driven Death Metal, the way it was done back in the day, again. When Håkan re-animated Wombbath, the thought was to record a new album with the use of old friends and musicians he knew would be able to channel his vision of what Wombbath is and to keep it purely as a studio project.

Along the journey Håkan picked up Jonny as a full-time member and the duo realized that this album was becoming something too big to keep as a studio project. So a search for a full line-up began. After a few hit and misses he finally found the right people to join him and take this rumbling Death Metal monster to its fullest potential. Wombbath has been around since 1990 and this is where the real journey begins!
