“Arise From Decay” video launched online! “Invocation” album released on LP format! New merchandise for 2011! European tour kicks off next week!

January 19th, 2011

Hey Thrashers!

We are actually spending the weekend locked up in our rehearsal room for final setlist preparations for the European tour with Nile starting next week, so we thought we could as well check in and bring you a run of assorted news…

“Arise From Decay” video-clip launched online!


While we spent a good amount of time on the European roads in 2010 promoting the release of the newest DEW-SCENTED album “Invocation”, we figured it would be a good idea to collect live footage and have some of it presented to our global supporters. We chose the album’s opening “Arise From Decay” for the clip as this track has become an important and very energetic piece of our current live-set.

The video was shot by our friend and fellow road-warrior Oliver “Bomber” Barth / Visions In Fear ( at various live-locations in the second half of 2010. But see for yourselves…

The premiere of the clip has taken place via Metal Injection at the following location:

In the meantime, the video has also been launched via youtube here for everyone to see:

Hey everybody!

Happy and heavy new year 2011 to all of you!

We have known Michi for several years now and are certain he will compliment the band in a great way for the coming shows! Michi checked in with the following message:

“Hey Metalheads! This is Michael, guitarist of Holy Moses. I am proud to let you know that I am joining DEW-SCENTED for their upcoming European Tour. I have liked these guys and their material since many years and in my opinion DEW-SCENTED are a real challenge for all Thrash Metallers. Their songs are sounding heavy now and will kick you right in the face… I am truly looking forward to meeting you all on this amazing tour!”

On a different note, we wanted to take a moment of your time to bring attention to some killer albums released by other bands in the just finished year 2010. Here is a “Top 5“ list (in no specific order) by some of the DEW-SCENTED members:

FORBIDDEN – Omega Wave
OVERKILL – Ironbound
HEATHEN – The Evolution Of Chaos
SLASH – Slash
HELLYEAH – Stampede

JELLO BIAFRA – The Audacity Of Hype
GRAND MAGUS – Hammer Of The North
GHOST BRIGADE – Isolation Songs
KILLING JOKE – Absolute Dissent
GOD DETHRONED – Under The Sign Of The Iron Cross

TRIPTYKON – Eparistera Daimones
OVERKILL – Ironbound
ATHEIST – Jupiter
TRAPT – No Apologies

Not only did we manage to release an own new album, “Invocation”, and play a ton of great shows to support the record, but all in all 2010 definitely marked a pretty good year for all things METAL. Let’s hope 2011 will become even better….

Take care and stay tuned for some more cool DEW-SCENTED news in the coming week!
