Grand Cadaver – Swedish Death Metal Outfit Ft Current/Former Members Of Dark Tranquillity & Katatonia Share Entire New Album ‘Deities of Deathlike Sleep’ Via Decibel Magazine
Swedish classic HM-2-driven death-metal outfit Grand Cadaver today share their entire second album “Deities Of Deathlike Sleep”, exactly three days ahead of the release set for this Friday, August 25th via Majestic Mountain Records.
The new album is now playing in full at Decibel Magazine, who had this to say about the new effort “Deities of Deathlike Sleep offers 10 tracks of prime OSDM filth delivered by some of the best at such things.”
Listen to “Deities Of Deathlike Sleep” in its entirety here. The follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed 2021’s debut album ”Into The Maw of Death” was recorded by Per Stålberg, Kalle Lilja and Daniel ‘Dollars’ Deurell at Welfare Studios, Gothenburg, mixed by Per Stålberg and mastered by Johan Reivén (Audiolord Mastering) and sees Grand Cadaver further honing and sharpening their furious and menacing HM-2 influenced death-metal attack. Pre-orders are now available at this location.
“We never even planned to release a full-length album, and here we are with our second! Says the band. “Deities of Deathlike Sleep” was conceived and recorded with the same mindset and the same team as our previous recordings, keeping it quick, spontaneous and enjoyable. This time it turned out a bit more dynamic, with the pummeling fury interspersed with some doom, gloom and darkness. But still, it’s simply ten tracks of Swedish Fucking Death Metal, the way we love it”
Founded in 2020, right in the middle of a global pandemic, Grand Cadaver is comprised of prominent members of the Swedish extreme metal scene, namely Mikael Stanne from Dark Tranquillity and The Halo Effect, Stefan Lagergren from The Grifted, formerly of Treblinka/Tiamat and Expulsion, Alex Stjernfeldt from Novarupta, Child and formerly of Mr. Death,Christian Jansson of Pagandom and Dark Tranquillity and Daniel Liljekvist of Disrupted, Vorder, and formerly of Katatonia.
Influenced by that classic HM-2 Swedish death-metal sound, the Swedes have released an EP titled ”Madness Comes” in 2021 followed by their full-length debut ”Into The Maw of Death” later that year to great critical acclaim.
