Selfmadegod Records will release the debut LP from Swedish death metal horde USURPRESS this summer.
Following their “In Permanent Twilight” MCD released via Selfmadegod this past spring — in addition to recently released split EPs with PYRAMIDO (Plague Island) and BOMBS OF HADES (Doomentia) — the first full-length from USURPRESS is ready for disbursement, available from Selfmadegod this July! Entitled “Trenches Of The Netherworld”, the album contains eleven soul-reaping circle-pit anthems utilizing the band’s seemingly patented blend of death metal and d-beat/crust punk influences. The CD’s cover art was crafted by by Rafal Kruszyk (INTERMENT, HOODED MENACE, DECEASED, PAGANIZER).
Uppsala-based USURPRESS features the steamrolling flair of four members of the Swedish punk/metal underworld, including vocalist Stefan “Steffe” Pettersson (DISKONTO, UNCURBED), bassist Daniel Ekeroth (ex-TYRANT, ex-DELLAMORTE, author of “Swedish Death Metal” book), drummer Calle Andersson and guitarist Påhl (ex-BLOTSERAPH, ex-SHURIKEN).
