Sweden’s d-beat crust gods, Martyrdöd, return with their second full-length for Southern Lord. Once again they entered the infamous Studio Fredman (At The Gates, Amon Amarth, Opeth) to record their new full-length, entitled Elddop the crushing follow-up to 2012’s “Paranoia” LP.
Made up of some of crust’s top combatants, including members of Acursed, Agrimonia, Miasmal, Skitsystem and others, Martyrdöd fuses black metal influences into their crust punk style. They create a sense of unfathomable darkness to staggering effect through their game-changing albums; the debut, “In Extremis”, and the aforementioned “Paranoia”, which saw them expand their sound with more dynamic leads, empowering dis-harmonies and tension-filled buildups than ever before. Through heavy touring and an unstoppable live show the band has amassed a diehard fanbase in the underground, which will only continue to expand through the upcoming release of “Elddop”. – LA FAMILIA
