This is Fire – Cursed Black Metal Act SWAZÖND Drop New Heat [Japan]

There are certain days that running this website rules…today is one of those days.

Check out this brand new track by Japanese band SWAZÖND. Don’t worry about breathing – the entire 2-minute track is going to hit you hard and then when it’s over, you can lean back in your chair and say the following to yourself…”Holy fuck”.

Yeah. It’s that good.

Here’s the full write-up:

“Hailing from the concrete black hole of Tokyo, SWAZÖND offers up rage-fuelled Crusted Black Metal that pulls no punches in their delivery. The quartet consists of veterans Shohei on guitar (Lifeblood, Sungoddess, Miasma Death), Thom on drums (Retch, Worship Pain), Kanako on bass (FLAGITIOUS IDIOSYNCRASY IN THE DILAPIDATION), and Jharrod on vocals (GxFxFx). SWAZÖND’s debut full-length “Cursed Inheritance” blends their influences and experiences into a cohesive yet potent offering that is bound to catch the ear of fans of extreme metal and punk.”
