Melodic death metal veterans Battlesword have been the flagship of the genre since 1999, getting a steadily growing international following with their powerful and likeable live performances.
Now celebrating their 20th anniversary, the band is set to release their fifth output.
On “And Death Cometh Upon Us”, Battlesword proves that, despite several line-up problems in the past, they are still alive! With their concentrated load of energy, experience and a distinctive style that mixes melodic death metal and the old school style from Scandinavia, Battlesword manages to leave a trail of destruction behind and leave the listeners with a serious pain in their necks!
“And Death Cometh Upon Us” was recorded, mixed and mastered in April 2019 at Beefy Audio Mönchengladbach by André Bodewein. The artist Mark Erskine (Erskine Designs) is responsible for the cover artwork, which gives the album a worthy optical frame for the band’s anniversary.
