Swedish death metal overlords PAGANIZER premiere title track via No Clean Singing

Artwork by Juanjo Castellano (Wombbath, The Black Dahlia Murder)

Paganizer are known to deliver top-notch Swedish death metal and they have been reliably doing that for years. Now this album is considered to be one of the strongest Paganizer albums, if not the strongest. The difference being, there’s added nuance and emotive quality in this one which is beautifully contrasted against their usual brisk and hard-hitting music. No Clean Singing premiered their perfectly tempered title track AT THIS LINK. Here’s an excerpt from the feature.

“Beyond the Macabre is a supernatural spectacle, a display of Swedish death metal that continues to menace and maraud in the best of the old traditions, but with a knack for incorporating evocative melodies that both add to the music’s visceral and vicious vitality and makes the songs genuinely memorable” 


– “it fucking rules. This is death metal done right” – Two Guys Metal Reviews (US)

– “Paganizer have returned with a great album” – Dioses Del Metal (Spain)

– “Beyond The Macabre is a perfect example, it’s genre perfection” – Extreme Metal Maniac (US)

Swedish death metal giants Paganizer have taken their time to come up with their most mature album till date. They’ve honed their sound, become more expressive, and made their song structures even more elaborate, without diluting any of the qualities that we’ve come to expect from them. There is a flawless combination of tuneful riffs, stomping parts, brisk blasting and some of the best hooks in the genre, underpinned by a glorious albeit tasteful sense of melody. Littered with memorable riffs and stirring melodies, the songs are at once pummelling and evocative, ensuring the desired heaviness and managing to leave a lasting impression as well. The stunning Juanjo Castellano artwork lends to the album a mystifying, otherworldly aura that goes perfectly with this album where Rogga Johansson tries to go above and beyond the call of duty and delivers a hard-hitting and poignant masterpiece in this realm of death metal.
