Sweden’s new death metal supergroup The Lurking Fear have signed to Century Media Records! The supergroup features members and former members of At The Gates, The Haunted, Skitsystem, Disfear and God Macabre and are currently working on their debut album which is penciled in for release later this year.
The quintet got together not just to create another supergroup, but to celebrate death metal, the genre that brought them all together and is very close to their hearts.
The band, cite influences including Autopsy, Slaughter and early Slayer among many, say; “We are a Death Metal band. Not your average new wave of old school Death Metal band. We play Death Metal from the heart with pure emotional impact and a focused artistic vision. This is the music we live and breathe. Always have, always will.
We have all played in various other bands for over 25 years and we just want to spew out the music that we want to hear. When we get together this is what comes out of naturally, because we share the exact same reference points. We love “Seven Churches” and “Mental Funeral” for the exact same reasons.
We want our Death Metal ugly, twisted and possessed. We miss the urgency, intensity and ”realness” in a lot of the modern Death Metal, therefore it is natural for us to stray away from the streamlined sounds of today, but rather focus on bringing sheer, natural weirdness and horror back to the table…”
