MOLDER ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM, ENGROSSED IN DECAY; TITLE TRACK PREMIERING NOWApr 28, 2022

Alongside the album announcement, MOLDER have premiered the title track and an accompanying visualizer via Invisible Oranges.
LISTEN TO ENGROSSED IN DECAY & WATCH THE ACCOMPANYING VISUALIZER VIA INVISIBLE ORANGES HERE.
Speaking on the album announcement and track premiere Aaren Pantke (vocals / guitar) comments: "We're absolutely stoked to finally release our first offering via Prosthetic Records. That said, we felt Engrossed In Decay was just as appropriate of a song, if any, to showcase first.
"We chose Engrossed In Decay as the title track of the new record as it totally encompasses our sound, past and present. It has all the elements of MOLDER; doom, death, thrash, and punk. Clocking in at just above 4 minutes, this ripper is chock full of death-obsessed lyrical content, bass breaks, pounding drums, and nasty riffs... what more could ya ask for?"
Conceptually, Engrossed in Decay collects the sonic aesthetics of the in-song samples, death-obsessed lyrics, and colorful mucus and blood themes into a cohesively gross package. This is the type of gift found in medical waste repositories or in the aftermath of a kitchen knife rampage. One look at the cover illustrated by Lucas Korte (Blood Incantation, Tomb Mold), and MOLDER’s sordid intentions are immediately evident. This is blood-curdling, gore-hurling death metal from graves licentiously disturbed.
MOLDER took Engrossed in Decay to Studio Novy, where they hooked up with Cheyenne Brandt (Vanished Cadavers, and Chicago Metal Hell Vol 2) again to engineer and mix. Cianide’s Scott Carroll joined the sessions as steward, ensuring that the death metal performed by MOLDER and captured by Brandt sounded absolutely abhorrent and fetidly fresh. Two weekends were spent at Studio Novy to get Engrossed in Decay firmly out of the ground. The final mix went to Philadelphia-based mastering ace Arthur Rizk (Creeping Death, Temple of Void). The result is an engrossing experience, nasty to the touch yet riveting like a chainsaw battle. Glutinous Remains, Chemically Dissolved, Huff the Stench, and the title track are prime examples of MOLDER’s choicest, meatiest cuts.
The next phase of MOLDER’s depraved death metal domination will commence after Engrossed in Decay
is unleashed upon metaldom. Until then, they’ll fester wildly in and around Chicago, with the rest of North America suffering perversely with a full-scale bloodbath later in 2022.
You’ve been warned! MOLDER are coming for you, their stomach-churning, mortifying corpses in full-on attack mode.
