Now just days from release, MUMAKIL‘s jackhammering third LP Flies Will Starve will hit the streets first thing next week via Relapse, out on June 25th in North America, preceded by release June 21st in Germany/Benelux/Finland and June 24th in the UK and abroad. In an ongoing torrent of brutalizing propaganda, today the Swiss foursome shove another dose of ripping blastbeat treatment down your throats with the album’s third anthem “War Therapist” through the providers of pummel at Cvlt Nation.
Get your shit together ASAP, and schedule an appointment with your “War Therapist” RIGHT HERE.

“…you can’t question the power. When Mumakil drop a big overhand right… you’re going to be floored.” – Decibel
“…Flies Will Starve fucking slays… they’re carrying a torch for the genre high above the legion of stagnant ne’er-do-wells and posturing thieves. 9/10” – Outburn
“Apparently based around themes of mankind’s incessant will to destroy itself, and utilizing themes such as war, deception, pain and anger, Flies Will Starve may consider itself the ideal soundtrack for the way many people feel about the world around them today. 8/10” – Ghost Cult
“Mumakil has gone for a very modern production style that emphasizes intensity but cleans up the sound a bit, making the bass drum completely tear through the wall of sound and hit you right in the chest.” – Cosmos Gaming
