Below is our complete Gormathon news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Swedish melodic death metal act Gormathon released a music video for the new track "Land of the Lost." The song appears on the upcoming new release "Follow the Beast," the sophomore full length release due out via Napalm Records on the following release schedule:
September 24th: NOR/SWE
September 26th: G/A/S, FIN & BENELUX
September 29th: UK & EUROPE
October 7th: US/CAN
Gormathon describes the music as "melodic death metal and thrash with influences from modern Heavy Metal to inspirations of old Metal heroes from the eighties." "We all have different backgrounds and influences. Presumably this is the main reason why our music sounds a bit different than the usual Metal styles" explains guitarist Stefan Jonsson. "We had very clear ideas about how GORMATHON should sound. We knew exactly what the Metal scene is missing nowadays. We had to get it only from our minds to our instruments. I think our new record will prove that we have successfully implemented our project."
The band continues a tradition of fine metal bands coming from the small Swedish town of Bollnäs. Jonsson explains what is going on with this fabled city itself: "Here’s nothing going on. That’s why we are so devoted to the Heavy Metal. But when you leave our boring town and dare to walk through our dark forests, then you will encounter gnomes, trolls and other beings."
