News: New releases in work!
Martydod - List LP and Anstalt EP!
If everything goes to plan new Martyrdöd Album will see the light by early December.
Martyrdöd is one of those bands that has made an excellent name for themselves since their beginnings back in 2003 with their self-titled release. The metallic crust-punks have kept a strong stance in the scene by having a distinct sound that is less focused on making as much noise as possible but slapping out some fine tuned cuts. Once again they entered the infamous Studio Fredman (At The Gates, Amon Amarth, Opeth) to record their new full-length, entitled "List" the crushing follow-up to 2014’s "Elddop" LP. Martyrdöd are not a "D-beat by numbers" band. They have a more mid-paced approach, more intricate guitar work – including squealing pick harmonics – with plenty of minor chords in their heavy downtuned assault that to me always suggests a tinge of sadness. All the D-beat ingredients are there: huge beginnings to songs, offbeats on the drums on slow parts, pick slides down the guitar strings….What’s not to like? If you like d-beat and "epic crust" as I’ve heard the stuff at the slower end of the scale termed this should float your boat. "List" will be a split release between La Famila Releases and Southern Lord.
Anstalt just recorded 4 new sonx of power-fuel fed nihilistic hardcore incl. massive aaaaahs and ohhhhhs. The songs are hella catchy and the recording is raw enough...This might as well be a continuation of that band, gritty Motörpunk’n’roll, Lemmy vocals, “woah-ohs,” solos and all. We are currently waiting for the master which should arrive any day...The new EP will be split release between Farewell Records, De:Nihil (Sweden) and Break The Records (Japan) and will be out early 2017.
We keep you updated!
