About the event

Grand Cadaver was formed in Gothenburg and Stockholm in the pandemic year of 2020.

Every member has been a part of the Swedish extreme metal scene since their youth and many were part of shaping the first wave of Death Metal in the late 80’s. Grand Cadaver is all about that classic Swedish HM-2 sound!

The debut EP ”Madness Comes” was recorded over 3 days in August of 2020 and was released to critical acclaim by Majestic Mountain Records in February 2021, reaching 9th place on the Swedish Album Charts (Physical Copies). Shortly thereafter the band returned to Welfare Sounds studio to record the debut album, "Into the Maw of Death", which was released on October 29th the same year. Once again to great acclaim, and landing a multitude of positive reviews.

"The triumph of Into The Maw Of Death is in its ability to take a path into OSDM that doesn’t sound like every other revivalist band; there’s a menacing streak to it and an enduring love of death metal of all stripes that shines through" (Distorted Sound Mag)

When the restrictions of the pandemic were lifted, Grand Cadaver made their debut live show in Gothenburg, followed by a short tour in support of At The Gates. The final show was at the Gefle Metal Festival Winter Edition.

With the increased activity of the members' other bands, Grand Cadaver had to slow down the pace a tad, but entered the studio once again in the fall of 2022. The second album "Deities of Deathlike Sleep" was released on August 25, 2023.

"Deities of Deathlike Sleep is their second stab. It’s along the same lines as their first: Swedish death metal done the right way." (Decibel Magazine)

"‘Deities Of Deathlike Sleep’ is another excellent album from Grand Cadaver who do their ode to the old school Swedish death metal sound but add their own twists and turns into the sound ensuring that they don’t sound like yet another Entombed, Dismember or Carnage carbon copy. This is ripping old school death metal with a sinister doomy mood to it and definitely a recommended listen." (The Razor's Edge)

"With Grand Cadaver, you know you’re getting top-tier musicianship, top-tier song writing, and one of the best vocalists in the game, and if they set the bar with Into the Maw of Death, they more than exceeded it on Deities of Deathlike Sleep." (Metal Epidemic)
