DEW-SCENTED Working On 'Very Special Release' For Next Year

German thrashers DEW-SCENTED have commenced work on "a bunch of new songs" for "a very special release" which will see the light of day next year. The band states: "The material's flow is awesome and we feel it's headed well into the right direction we explored on 'Icarus' and taking things a notch further. We will be hitting studios by the end of January 2013… Look out!"

DEW-SCENTED's latest album, "Icarus", was released on July 31 in North America via Prosthetic Records (one day earlier internationally through Metal Blade Records). The CD features guest appearances by Dan Swanö (EDGE OF SANITY, BLOODBATH), Rob Urbinati (SACRIFICE) and Dennis Schneider (RETALIATION, FINAL BREATH).

DEW-SCENTED vocalist Leif Jensen previously described the "Icarus" main theme as "a modern-times, very apocalyptic adaption of elements of the Icarus myth, using a lot of its symbolism while interlinking with several other personal or observant subjects in true DEW-SCENTED fashion." While the album — recorded at Soundlodge Studio and produced by Jörg Uken (NIGHTFALL, SUICIDAL ANGELS, GOD DETHRONED) — is not quite a concept album per se, Jensen said "Icarus" "has a pretty coherent lyrical flow, and that helps to enhance and also to intentionally enlarge the atmosphere and vibe created by the music." The "Icarus" cover artwork was once created by Björn Goosses of Killustrations.
