Lik releases video for third single, “Celebration of the Twisted”

– April 24th, 2018 –

Death Metallers Lik from Stockholm, Sweden have just released the third single taken off their new album, Carnage, to be released May 4th via Metal Blade Records. To watch the video for “Celebration Of The Twisted”, please visit: youtube.com/watch?v=Qh1K-87uQKM

Lik comments: “We wanted to depict just how dark and gloomy Stockholm can be during the long winter we’re given here in the north. That sets a mood perfect to write old school death metal. You can say that the inspiration is always just around the corner. The one who knows his or hers Stockholm death metal will rejoice as there’s some major landmarks included in this video!”

The video was shot, produced and edited by Niklas Sandin. Thanks to Jonas Renkse & Linus Johansson.

Head over to metalblade.com/lik to check out the videos for the first two singles, “Rid You Of Your Flesh” and “Dr. Duschanka”. At the same location you can pre-order the album in the following formats:


–ltd. 1st ed. Digipak-CD
–180g black vinyl
–grey black marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
–white vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–red opaque/black splattered vinyl (EU/EMP exclusive – limited to 100 copies)
–clear/black marbled vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

In the dirt where fallen idols lay to rest, the maggots and seeds in 2014 spawned a new creation. This took the ugly form of Lik, which fittingly means corpse in Swedish. An un-dead creation which offers a plate of savory old school death metal. Walking the earth for three cold winters, and with the first offer named Mass Funeral Evocation in 2015, it’ll have a sister released in May of 2018. Through iconic Metal Blade Records, Carnage will reach even further in the quest to spread the beauty of imperfection.

Responsible to capture this on tape was once again Lawrence Mackrory (Darkane, F.K.U). This time things where stepped up a notch as the recording took place in the famous Dugout studios in Uppsala where Daniel Bergstrand also added some spice to the infernal stew. In the land where the craft is polished to resemble something else than brute reality, Lik has no passage as this entity is devoted to make a permanent mark in those who lay down their souls to rock’n’roll. That’s why the recipe will always, and has always been, to record as much live as possible. Keeping editing to a minimum offers a “what you hear is what you get”-experience. That’s why it feels like you’re on the spot at a live gig, rather than a calm studio environment when you spin the disc.

The new offering from the Stockholm group delivers more of what you got on the debut. It’s an effort where you can expect everything from slow and bone crushing songs to fast and furious riffs. The lyrics are once again about everything between heaven and hell, both in reality and in fiction. It portrays the deepest corners of humanity and it also flirts with old school horror.

LIK releases video for 2nd single, “Dr. Duschanka”

– April 5th, 2018 –

Death metallers Lik from Stockholm, Sweden have just released the 2nd single taken off their new album, Carnage, to be released May 4th via Metal Blade Records. To watch the video for “Dr. Duschanka”, please visit: youtube.com/watch?v=pqYrg8Jf1R8

Lik comments: “‘Dr. Duschanka’ is a gruesome piece about what can go down if you happen to book yourself into the appointment of your nightmares. We were looking for a video that necessarily didn’t need to depict what happens in the lyrics, but reflects the dark and gritty story. At an early stage it was decided to do a classical performance video inspired by old classics like Pantera‘s ‘I’m Broken’. Together with crew of ‘The Happy Creative’ we achieved this and the visual distortion goes well with the sonical!”

The first single, “Rid You Of Your Flesh”, can be heard at: metalblade.com/lik – where the record can pre-ordered in the following formats:

Date For Debut EP “The Beast Unburdened By Flesh” Issued By Grave Spirit

Today, Iron Bonehead Productions sets January 12, 2018 as the international release date for Grave Spirit’s striking debut EP, “The Beast Unburdened by Flesh,” on 7″ EP format.

Grave Spirit was spawned in the earliest days of 2017, born from the mind of BW and slowly put together during the early months of the year. After the writing was underway and early recording of the guitar work began in earnest, ES was recruited on drums, and TG joined the project on bass. “The Beast Unburdened By Flesh” was summoned in the summer of the same year as Grave Spirit’s creation, and now comes to horrify the world with tales of the mythical, both living and undead. Its primary foundation is the eternal fire of black witching metal, but here suffused with the ghastliness and dread of eldritch death metal. Its powers are simple yet profound, and between these two tracks, Grave Spirit mark a more-than-promising start to terrorizing souls worldwide.

The artwork and track listing are as follows:

Side A: Absorbing Essence from Underneath
Side B: The Beast Unburdened by Flesh
