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.
