Grand Cadaver – Swedish Death Metal Outfit Ft Current/Former Members Of Dark Tranquillity & Katatonia Share New Track “A Crawling Feast of Decay” 

Swedish classic HM-2-driven death-metal outfit Grand Cadaver today share another track off their second album “Deities Of Deathlike Sleep” on August 25th via Majestic Mountain Records.

Titled “A Crawling Feast of Decay” this new track is now playing at Invisible Oranges, whose editor Ted Nubel had this to say about the new single “Classic ‘Swedeath’ riffs abound, though they lurk with a peculiar gloom: poignant guitar lines chime like distant bells, and Stanne’s vocals conjure thoughts of rotten banquets and bloody harvests. It’s gnarly stuff, but that about sets the scene for the rest of the record’s blood-soaked death metal.”

Listen to “A Crawling Feast of Decay” here.

Vocalist Mikael Stanne comments about this new track, “Another festering serving of death metal from the swamps of hell comes here in the form of “A Crawling feast of Decay”. A tale of inhuman torture and cruelty set to the tune of blistering speed and fury. The deities of deathlike sleep are coming!”

The follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed 2021’s debut album ”Into The Maw of Death” was recorded by Per StålbergKalle 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 EffectStefan Lagergren from The Grifted, formerly of Treblinka/Tiamat and ExpulsionAlex 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.
