One of the most obscure Death/Grind bands from early 90's scene in Spain is NEUNTOTER; a band with a true underground cult following that will finally see released their only two demos from '90 & '91 plus quite some unreleased bonus tracks on the famous Xtreem Cult Series under the title of "Stench to Stench" through Xtreem Music.

However, the legacy of NEUNTOTER will live forever on this release containing demo covers, flyers, photos, show posters and a complete interview. Lovers of the most primitive, nasty and vomitive Death/ Grind influenced by some very early PUNGENT STENCH, EXULCERATION, NAPALM DEATH, CARCASS, AGATHOCLES... will worship NEUNTOTER, which is the real unadultered essence of the sonic putrefaction!
