Death metal maniacs Fuming Mouth are to mark their return with the long-awaited release of their second full-length album, Last Day of Sun. Last Day of Sun will released through Nuclear Blast Records on November 3.
Vocalist/guitarist Mark Whelan battled with cancer for almost a year since he was diagnosed with leukemia in late 2021. Chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant was done in order to make Mark cancer-free. Finally, the frontman is cancer-free and back with the band to make their best and fierce record ever.
Commenting on the incoming record, Whelan says:
“What started as a fictional concept album became incredibly real. I was facing certain death, but as I kept writing the album, its theme became clear. You could die tomorrow. Seize the day.”
Fuming Mouth have also released the album’s first single, “The Silence Beyond Life,” accompanied by a music video.
Watch the official video of “The Silence Beyond Life” on YouTube:
Adding about the song, Whelan states:
“‘The Silence Beyond Life’ is our most melodic and heaviest song to date drawing influence from God Macabre, Gorement, and other melodic Swedish death metal acts of the time like Therion and Cemetary. It’s a song about trying to live while longing to die and overcoming that.”
