Swedish black metal force MURDRYCK are ready to proffer their second album, Födelsen, on May 01st, 2019 under the banner of Leviaphonic Records (CD, cassette and digital) and Growls From The Underground (vinyl). The band have unleashed the first single “Sea Spirit of the Night” worldwide to give the listeners the first taste of this album.
“‘Sea Spirit of the Night” was probably the second song that was written for the album, shortly after the release of the debut,” informs Skärseld, guitarist of Murdryck. “The early demo of this has a different structure to the final album version and features our previous vocalist, Gast, screeching over the music with his lyrics. I rewrote the lyrics after he left.”

MURDRYCK entered the black-metal fold in 2014 upon reshaping from a dark-ambient sound into a fast paced, aggressive guitar-oriented band.
The 2015 EP “As The Moon Bleeds…”, picked by Zero Tolerance Magazine as the “Self-Release of the Month”, catapulted the Swedish based three-piece to international exposure. The debut album, “Antologi MMXV”, came out a year later via Black Lion Records and received acclamation from both the listeners and the critiques alike despite the lack of strong promotional activities.
Murdryck begin 2019 with preparations for their follow-up album, Födelsen, and is scheduled for release on 1st May 2019 through Leviaphonic Records (CD, cassette and digital) and Growls From The Underground (vinyl). With many line-up changes affecting the band since inception, Murdryck have delivered a confident and aggressive album that takes their music to another level than seen on their debut release while still retaining their identity. “Födelsen” embodies a much heavier sound and offers a more sinister environment that was unexploited in the band’s previous outputs.
