New York City thrashers SUN DESCENDS, who feature in their ranks former EXUMER vocalist Mem von Stein, have added a second guitarist to their ranks. Bronx-raised Lou Cortez joined the band in December 2006 and is now a permanent member.
In other news, SUN DESCENDS pushed their recording date back to late May 2007, and are in the end stages of the writing process for the new album. The new CD, titled "The Entropy Formula", will be produced by TERROR OF THE TREES mastermind His Eminence the Wicked. The recording will also feature Craig "The Reaper" Horval of NUNSLAUGTHTER/CRUCIFIED MORTALS on bass. The artwork for the album will be created by Sean Taggart, who was responsible for mid-Eighties cover artwork from such bands as AGNOSTIC FRONT, CRUMBSUCKERS and CARNIVORE.
Commented Mem V. Stein: "The new material is definitely in the vein of Eighties thrash metal with traces of hardcore and a lot of guitar harmonies. It captures the spirit and sound of New York City's inspiring griminess."
"The Entropy Formula" will be released via Twilight Distribution in late summer of 2007.
