Transcending Obscurity Signs Down Among The Dead Men, New Album Revealed

Death metal supergroup Down Among The Dead Men has assembled a new album “…And You Will Obey Me” – which finds the band filthier and crustier than ever before. Sounding massive, Rogga Johansson has created his best music for the band yet, with Dave Ingram being in absolute top form throughout. Both members have put out highly successful albums in Paganizer and Ursinne respectively this year, not to mention the sensational Echelon release where they joined forces again.

The full length is scheduled for release in early 2018 and a new song will be unleashed soon.

Dave Ingram states, “Getting Down Among The Dead Men signed to Transcending Obscurity Records was the ideal move for myself and Rogga, since we both have bands already with this great label (Ursinne for me, Paganizer for Rogga, and Echelon jointly.) This is yet another notch in our respective bullet belts, and we are proud to bring the third Down Among The Dead Men album ‘…And You Will Obey Me’ to the world via Transcending Obscurity Records, one of the most hardworking labels on the scene.”

Rogga Johansson adds, “I just wanna riff, and riffing is what Down Among The Dead Men is all about. Riffing and the immense vocals of the legend himself David Ingram. So we did a new album, and its gonna blow you away, as its a really, really good one! And who better to release it than proven media mogul Kunal Choksi with his Transcending Obscurity? Well no one else at all. I’m utterly proud of this album, and how we release it, and I hope that anyone that needs some dirty deathly crust in their lives will agree to just that too.”

Transcending Obscurity Records owner Kunal Choksi states, “It’s a continued honour to work with legends Rogga Johansson and David Ingram. Down Among The Dead Men have been one of my favourites and I was blown away after listening to their new album. It’s crusty as fuck and crushing as they’ve ever been. I’m sure this will be very well received and it’s great to have the support of both the gentlemen who have been very kind and cooperative all along. Both have been in phenomenal form too, what with their new albums of Paganizer and Ursinne (even Echelon) receiving an overwhelming response. This has been a great signing for the label so far and their new album will definitely be one of the highlights of 2018.”

Lyric Video For New Song “Warriors Land” Issued by Stass Issues

Stass is a new band created by Felix Stass, vocalist from Crematory and Rogga Johansson, guitar player from Paganizer. Today, the band issued a lyric video for the first single “Warriors Land.” The song is taken from the debut album “The Darkside,” which drops via Mighty Music/Target Group on September 15th.

Stass was formed after Felix and Rogga met at a Paganizer gig in 2012 in Germany. Paganizer was playing a mini tour and at a gig in Ludwigshafen near Mannheim where Felix resides, they bumped into each other.

Sharing a mutual love for metal and drinking, as well as eating, there couldn’t be much question that they would enjoy each other’s company. After keeping in touch and Felix guesting on a song on the second Megascavenger album, they both thought it would be cool to work on a whole album together, combining their talents in the best possible way. The idea of Stass was born.

The idea was to make an album together that showcases both the heavy and the dark and also the melodic sides to both member’s main bands. Fifteen songs were written and recorded and produced by Demiurg bassist Johan Berglund, who also plays bass on the album.

On lead guitars Paganizer’s Kjetil Lynghaug stepped in and excels in some awesome solowork. The album was widdled to ten of the fifteen written songs and represents a vortex of melodic dark death metal, oozing of the vibe and the voice of Crematory but merged with the heaviness of Swedish death metal.

The track listing for “The Darkside” is:

1. Warriors Land
2. Crawling From Ashes
3. The Final Disease
4. Forever Blind
5. Angel of Doom
6. All Roads Lead To Hell
7. The Burning
8. Days Of Cremation
9. The New World Order
10. The Host

Stass is:

Felix Stass – Vocals
Rogga – Johansson – Guitars
Kjetil Lynghaug – Lead Guitars
Johan Berglund – Bass
Erik R Bevenrud – Drums
