Swedish death metal battalion CREEPING FLESH shoots the first fire from the upcoming album “…And Then the Bombs Came”. “Like So Many Before Them” shows all the destructive power of the Gothenburg five-piece, in an old-school piece of death metal that not only evokes the spirit of veterans Bolt Thrower, Asphyx, Obituary and such, but also does it with an amazing sense of Swedish melody and sound.
“Like So Many Before Them” is an ode to the fallen and the misled”, drummer Martin Kadhammar comments. “The battle for Kasserine Pass is a widely known, drawn out slaughterhouse. Perhaps one of the most humiliating defeats in Allied history. It’s a very fitting scenery for a depiction of the brutality and pointlessness of war, both in the past and the present“.
Established in Swedish Death Metal haven Gothenburg in 2013, Creeping Flesh started on a mission to play their own style of mid-tempo, old school death metal, influenced by bands such as Bolt Thrower, Asphyx and Hail of Bullets, but with the addition of Swedish melody and sound from bands such as Hypocrisy, Grave and Unleashed.
After releasing an EP each year during the following three years, their debut album “Into the Meat Grinder” came in 2019 to great critical acclaim. They now have a solid following due to consistent musical output, as well as a reputation for energetic, no holds barred, head-bang inducing live shows.
The new Creeping Flesh album, “…And Then the Bombs Came” will be released by Emanzipation in 2022.
