Vulvodynia 24

After recently revealing details on their upcoming album Entabeni, South African deathcore band Vulvodynia has now released the upcoming album's first single. 

The title track, "Entabeni", also features PeelingFlesh vocalist Damonteal Harris

The album marks the band's first with new vocalist Lwandile Prusent who was previously the band's guitarist before their brutal split with Duncan Bently. The album along with the title track was mixed and mastered by Christian Donaldson, with drums recorded by JP de Stefani at Be Sharp Studios, and guitars and bass recorded at Kris Xen Studios.

Vulvodynia says:

'Entabani' is a very important album for us, it sees us at crossroads in our career. We've fully embraced the idea of writing as a collective, exploring every member's ideas, experiences and formed them all together to create what we think is our most ambitious album yet. We wanted to explore the concept of African folklore on this album and based a lot of the songs off of old stories found in poems, books and even through word of mouth from our vocalist Lwandile's older family members.

The word Entabeni means 'The Mountain' in the African language Isizulu. It explores the concept of initiation in the different tribes and cultures that practice it. We want this first single to really make a statement and believe this is the most confident we've ever sounded! We hope our fans can accept and embrace the changes we've undergone.
