News of a new Martyrdöd LP as they announce the signing with Century Media Records
It was something we had eluded to recently when breaking the news of Martyrdöd announcing Tim had joined the band.
“Swedish metal crust punks MARTYRDÖD have signed a three-album deal with Century Media Records for the world excluding North-America.
MARTYRDÖD, founded in Stockholm in 2001, have gained a strong following in the crust, punk and metal scenes worldwide with the release of six studio albums. Especially the band’s latest studio albums, “Elddop” (2014) and “List” (2016), have stirred up the extreme music scene massively, showing a new side of MARTYRDÖD by entwining more wicked melodies into the metal-induced crust songs. Influenced by acts like Wolfpack, At The Gates, Anti Cimex, Totalitär and Bathory, MARTYRDÖD is not your typical crust band, covering a far wider range of styles without ever losing focus on their roots.
MARTYRDÖD are currently in the process of writing new material for the successor of “List”, which is roughly scheduled for a release in the second half of 2018. More news to follow in the upcoming months.
MARTYRDÖD are (from left to right in the picture above)
