It is taken from the band’s new compilation on Moribund Records, "Death’s Old Stench – The Deathcult Sessions", which features unreleased songs from 2011 – 2013. The full tracklist reads like this: ‘Angel Negro’ (Intro), ‘Holy Saint Of Death’, ‘Brotherhood Of Chaos And Death’, ‘Revelation Of Degenesis’, ‘The Veiled Crowned Queen’, ‘De La Muerte’ (Intermezzo), ‘Azazel’, ‘Death Almighty Death’, ‘Blackened Illumination’, ‘Tweens Of Darkness And Evil’, ‘Cursed Blood’ and ‘Prelude To The Total Death 266’ (Outro). Vocalist Hellscream had the following to say about the album: "Death’s Old Stench" is BLEEDING FIST’s strangest, most obscure, and most esoteric effort. It’s really different from what we’ve done up till now, but in a way, it describes perfectly one of darkest times in our life as a band and as individuals. After the departure of (guitarists) Angelus and Occultus, we thought whether to release this album, because it was incomplete and in a partial demo form, so we decided in 2013 to finish this work and release it as raw and fucked-up as it was when we last left the studio. So, this is not really a new BLEEDING FIST album, but a strange and alchemic occult statement to honor our master Satan." BLEEDING FIST have recruited new guitarist Jex in the meantime, who replaces the aforementioned Angelus and Occultus, and who has already contributed to seven songs slated for the band’s next Moribund full-length.
