Transcending Obscurity label head Kunal Choksi states, “Having worked with Mark Riddick before for the promotion of his previous full-length album ‘Grotesque Creation’, not only was the music absolutely remarkable with the right influences and aesthetics, I was thoroughly impressed by his humility and promptness. Right then I made a mental note of working with him as much as possible, and when I approached him with a label deal for his upcoming album, it went down absolutely smoothly and I’m really excited to deal with his music and also artworks (being somewhat of a budding artist myself) in the coming year. It promises to be his best album yet!”
Fetid Zombie sole creationist and art legend Mark Riddick adds, “I’m very pleased to be working with Kunal and Transcending Obscurity in support of Fetid Zombie’s sixth full-length album, ‘Epicedia’. Kunal is a hard-working professional and I put my full confidence in his expertise, ability to network, and his passion for good music. For a long time, metal fans have known me for my artwork however I’ve been publishing music since the early ’90s as well. I believe Fetid Zombie’s new album will convince fans that my song-writing is equally as compelling as my illustration abilities. My latest effort is for fans who are looking for an underground death metal album familiar but unique and original. In addition, ‘Epicedia’ will showcase the virtuoso talents of several unlikely guest musicians who boast their talents throughout the album.”
Fetid Zombie are contributing an unreleased song for the upcoming Transcending Obscurity Label Sampler – ‘Volume 1’.
