Smut Kingdom is the last/lost album Australian death metal institution Pungent Stench completed prior to their final split in the summer of 2007. Composed and recorded during late 2006/early 2007 and roughly mixed during summer 2007 it came to a sudden end right before the planned photo shoot for the LP. Alex Wank aka Mr. Stench and Martin Schirenc aka El Cochino called it quits and the record stayed unreleased. The band had left Nuclear Blast a year before and were without any obligations. In the meantime they decided to record a new album and look with a finished product for a new partner.
Ten years later a very brief communication started between Wank and Schirenc. Previously legal action had taken place between them regarding the right to use the band´s name and there had been no interest in taking care of all their work of the past. The two now had the rights back for all the old albums and as they are all much sought after it‘s finally time to get them re-released. Their last work Smut Kingdom was also offered and now finally sees the light of day as well.
Recorded and mixed at Vato Loco by Schirenc, with guest appearances by Dr. Heathen Scum (The Mentors), Kam Lee (Mantas, Massacre) and LG Petrov (Entombed). Mastered by John Mitchell at Outhouse Studios, 2017.
