Swedish death metal all star outfit The Lurking Fear is streaming “Winged Death (EP Version),” off of their debut self titled 7” EP below. The EP, out now via Moondawn, also features three other tracks – “Tongued In Foul Flames”, “The Infernal Dread” and “Winged Death.”
The band commented:
“So, here is the first full blast of pure death metal filth for you maniacs, taken from the 3-track self-titled debut 7” EP! “Winged Death” is our little death metal epos about hungry Lovecraftian insects devouring you from the inside out. It has all the different elements of The Lurking Fear, the fast, pounding death metal mayhem, the slow, creepy horror/doom parts and howling screams of terror. Straight out of our coffin!”

The band is currently wrapping up the recording of their debut album Out Of The Voiceless Grave at Welfare Studios (Bombus, RAM, Bombs of Hades) in Gothernbug, Sweden, due August 11, 2017 via Century Media Records.
They checked in by commenting:
“We are in the middle of wrapping everything up in the studio and have just started the mixing process for the 11 tracks we recorded. It’s sounding nasty and raw, just the way we want it! The record is called “Out Of The Voiceless Grave” and that title sums up what the album and actually band are all about. Our idea is that you get a glimpse of the horrors spewing out from our metal grave of interstellar death. The album is basically our Vortex spawn, a beast with eleven heads, all ready to devour you! We are very pleased with how it sounds right now, as the guys at Welfare Sounds understood our concept immediately and have managed to capture some pure death metal filth on tape!”
Citing common inspiration by bands like Autopsy, Possessed, early Death, Repulsion, early Morbid Angel, Slaughter, Bathory, early Slayer or also Master/Death Strike, The Lurking Fear are not just another retro all-star project, but a real band of five Death Metal lifers, who organically got together in order to celebrate the Metal breed closest to their roots as well as their hearts.
