Martyrdod completes new album

Official press release:

Martyrdod has completed recording their new album, Elddop, at Studio Fredman, the follow up to the powerful declaration of political rage that was their 2012-released Southern Lord debut, Paranoia.

The band's fifth LP is the most emotionally intrusive record from the Swedish four-piece yet. Relentlessly forcing its way into the most obscure corners of the human mind, Elddop challenges the darkness by way of confronting it, and thus already pierces its way through the black, towards spiritual release. The daring 14 song record allows Martyrdod to elaborate on some of the musical themes and influences that have long characterized their sound. Securely placed in traditional Swedish hardcore punk such as Anti-Cimex, Martyrdod stands on the shoulders of giants, seeing further, wanting more. Enchanting melodies and Bathory-esque folk music finds a perfect fit in war charged d-beat mayhem.

Southern Lord is currently plotting a CD/LP release sometime in August, with a special European version of the vinyl coming out on La Familia and D-beat Raw Punk. Final release dates and details will be released in the near future.
