The Lurking Fear, the band featuring Tomas Lindberg (At The Gates), Adrian Erlandsson (The Haunted), Jonas Stålhammar (The Crown), Fredrik Wallenberg (Skitsystem), and Andreas Axelsson (Tormented, etc.), have signed a new deal with Century Media. The group Will release a 7″ EP in May, followed by a full album later in the year.
The band said the following:
“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…”
