Hot on the heels of last year’s critically acclaimed debut EP, Madness Comes, Swedish death metal assembly, Grand Cadaver, return with a brand-new single and update on their debut album.
Featuring guitarists Stefan Lagergren (The Grifted/ex. Treblinka/Expulsion) and Alex Stjernfeldt (Novarupta/Let Them Hang), drummer Daniel Liljekvist (Disrupted/ex. Katatonia), Pagandom bassist Christian Jansson, and vocals from Dark Tranquillity’s Mikael Stanne, the band draws together some of the finest musicians the Swedish metal scene has to offer.
“I heard two songs from an early demo, and I just knew I had to work with them,” explains Majestic Mountain Records’ Marco Berg. “I was blown away! Grand Cadaver honours old-school death metal but put their own spin on it and the production is some of the heaviest I have heard in years.”
New single ‘Reign Through Fire’ is a sprawling death metal dirge driven deftly around the historic circuitry of Marshall stacks and HM-2s. Where traditional thrash metal meets Stockholm Death Metal, consuming doom and progressive rock along the way, Grand Cadaver was established to celebrate the legacy of extreme music, while seizing the moment to hang out, drink beers and share riffs and great music with friends and close allies.
‘Reign Through Fire’ will be officially released on 23rd July but you can stream it exclusively right now over at MetalSucks HERE. The single will be available on 7″ vinyl with an exclusive B-side cover of Nihilist’s/Entombed’s ‘Supposed to Rot’ in honour of the late LG Petrov. With only 666 copies available you should pre-order here pretty soon.
Into the Maw of Death, the band’s debut full-length album will be released 29th October 2021 on Majestic Mountain Records
