RELEASE DATE: 21/07/2014


Elddop is the fifth studio full-length from Swedish crust/metal masters, Martyrdöd and it is now streaming via bandcamp, as the album comes within one week of its official release date.

  With a lineup including members of Agrimonia, Miasmal, Skitsystem and more within its ranks, Martyrdöd has become a major force in the Swedish crust circuit through the years. Burning with fourteen anthems which show Martyrdöd taking their already honed, scathing craft to new levels of intensity through experimentation with vocal and songwriting styles, taking some incredibly unique paths, Elddop is undoubtedly this masterful act’s finest work yet.
  Southern Lord will release the CD and LP editions of Elddop in the UK/Europe on 21st July; preorders are posted at this link: A special European version of the LP will see release on  La Familia Releases & D-takt & Råpunk.
  Directly after the album’s release, Martyrdöd will take the tunes from Elddop on the road across the UK/Europe supporting Converge, with opening support from Okkultokrati. The tour includes shows in the UK, Germany, Belgium, Czech Republic, Hungary, Austria, Slovenia and Italy, and includes sets at Ieper Fest, Brutal Assault, Magnolia Open Air and more. Additional tour actions and tunes from Elddop will be announced throughout the rest of the year.

[Elddop] doesn’t merely improve on the band’s already incredible body of work; it distills Martyrdöd’s sound to its most exciting elements, leaving everything but the highlights on the cutting-room floor…Elddop feels totally fresh and thrillingly new, yet employs only those tools fashioned in the ancient forges… I can’t imagine any generation of metal fan for whom Elddop would seem inappropriate — in many ways, it’s the very essence of metal.– STEREOGUM
