The Duke of Spook has returned once more from beyond the grave to reveal the Necrophaze. This latest, full-length offering from the ghouls of Wednesday 13 will be available on September 27 via Nuclear Blast Records. The creeptastic new single, 'Decompose,' is available for stream now.
Commenting on the new song, Wednesday says, “The track 'Decompose' is one of the first songs that was written for the new album, and one of the songs I was most excited about. Our drummer Kyle came up with the music, and once the band all got together, it took on a new life. With the addition of the eerie keyboard/piano pieces added in by Roy Mayorga (Stone Sour, Hellyeah), this is another classic Wednesday 13 graveyard sing-along.”
Heavily influenced by the real-life night terror occurrences of Wednesday himself, historical serial killers, and a slew of ‘80s horror films, the ideas behind Necrophaze are bizarrely familiar, frightening, and a hell of a lot of fun. Being a collector of both media and toys, Wednesday 13 was inspired by a craving for variety to create dual album artwork for this release. The covers showcase either end of the horror spectrum with a Creepshow comic book vibe for the LP artwork and the eeriness of something akin to John Carpenter’s The Fog adorning the CD.
