Stench Price is an ambitious project involving members of Brutal Truth, Necrophagist, Cynic, Hail of Bullets, Paganizer, Putrevore, etc. The music is avant-garde grind – vicious but laced with offbeat bossa/samba and lounge music. Each song has a different character to it but it’s all in the same spirit. For those who’re looking for a change from the repetitive kind of grindcore, this is it.
Transcending Obscurity owner Kunal Choksi comments, “I’m huge into grindcore and I’m thrilled to find a worthy grind band for the international label. Not only does the music kick ass, it also has a unique edge to keep it engrossing throughout. It’s a dream come true to have a band with such a sound and that too with contributions from some of the biggest names in metal. I can’t wait to unleash this later this year.”
Stench Price founder Peter G. Shallmin adds, “Our music is kind of a challenge for a label and for a listener. Just a true metal believer and a brave metal soldier can sign an agreement with Stench Price. We are glad to roll together with Kunal and his brand Transcending Obscurity Records. His professional approach and unstoppable personal dedication has no borders and restrictions so prepare yourself for a nerve-shattering experience!”
Masterminded by unconventional Siberian metal eccentric Peter G. Shallmin (Escapethecult, Kamlath), Stench Price is an exceptionally original musical project that combines death metal/grind with bossa/samba and lounge music touches.
Whilst the music is inventively avant-garde, the line-up is beyond belief:
Siberia – PETER SHALLMIN – Bass (Escapethecult, Kamlath)
Siberia – MAX KONSTANTINOV – Guitars (Kamlath, Nebesniesnami)
France – ROMAIN GOULON – Drums (Agressor, Necrophagist, Disavowed etc.)
The most exciting fact is that every single track features a different guest vocalist – true legends and rising stars, both:
USA – DANNY LILKER (Brutal Truth, Nuclear Assault, SOD, etc.)
Sweden – ROGGA JOHANSSON (Paganizer, Demiurg, etc.)
USA – MAX PHELPS (Exist, Cynic, Death DTA Tours)
UK – DAVE INGRAM (Hail of Bullets, Benediction, Bolt Thrower, etc.)
Australia – KARINA UTOMO (High Tension)
USA – SHAWN KNIGHT (Child Bite)
In the final note that crushes everything: all tracks are mixed and mastered by the legendary Mr. Tom Morris at The Morrisound Recordings Studio, Tampa, Florida – the Mecca of the original death metal sound.
