Sterbhaus Unleashes Christmas EP “Krampusnacht”

With Gerald Broms’ masterful portrayal of Krampus the Christmas demon enshrining the cover, Sterbhaus is now releasing the digital EP “Krampusnacht.” Grab your copy here or listen in below. The following press release was also issued:

“With its dynamic, high-quality metal Sterbhaus clearly shows what Christmas should be all about. As always with tongue in cheek wit but this time also with proper slay bells in spirit.

“In addition to the two original songs – title track ‘Krampusnacht’ and the instrumental ‘Santa Claus in Satans Claws,’ a cover of Britain’s finest Spinal Tap ‘Christmas with the Devil’ can be found.

“Mixing and mastering were handled by Jocke Skog (Clawfinger, Crucified Barbara, Entombed, Scar Symmetry, The Haunted). The EP will be available for free download annually from December 1 – December 31. Any attempt to download ‘Krampusnacht’ post-Christmas will be followed by a ridiculous price tag.”
