Recorded over three days in the summer of 2020 by Per Stålberg and Kalle Lilja at Gothenburg’s Welfare Sounds, Madness Comes is the debut EP from Sweden’s deadliest death metal assembly, Grand Cadaver.
Featuring guitarists Stefan Lagergren (The Grifted/ex. Treblinka/Expulsion) and Alex Stjernfeldt (Novarupta/Let Them Hang), drummer Daniel Liljekvist (Disrupted/ex. Katatonia), Pagandom bassist Christian Jansson, and vocals from Dark Tranquillity’s Mikael Stanne, the band draws together some of the finest musicians the Swedish metal scene has to offer.
“I heard two songs from an early demo and I just knew I had to release it,” explains Majestic Mountain Records’ Marco Berg. “When I heard the final master, I was blown away! Grand Cadaver honours old-school death metal but put their own spin on I and the production is some of the heaviest I heard in years.”
From traditional thrash metal through to Stockholm Death Metal, consuming doom and progressive rock along the way, Grand Cadaver was established to celebrate the history of extreme music, while seizing the opportunity to hang out, drink beers, share riffs and great music with friends and close allies.
Grand Cadaver’s debut EP, Madness Comes, is released 12th February 2021 on Majestic Mountain Records and can be pre-ordered HERE.
