April 12, 2019
FIRESPAWN — the Swedish death metal project featuring Lars Göran Petrov (vocals; ENTOMBED) and Victor Brandt (guitar; ENTOMBED),Alex Friberg (bass; NECROPHOBIC),Fredrik Folkare (guitar; UNLEASHED, NECROPHOBIC) and Matte Modin (drums; DARK FUNERAL, DEFLESHED) — will release its third album, "Abominate", on June 7 via Century Media Records.
The first single from the disc, "The Great One", can be streamed below.
Brandt says: "It's a great feeling to be able to release the third FIRESPAWN album and to be more pleased with the outcome than you could expect. Everyone's efforts (band, producer, painter, photographer, layout, label) have been above and beyond. So it's a real pleasure to present the first song from our new album, 'Abominate', which also happens to be my personal favorite — 'The Great One'."
Friberg adds: "I think that 'The Great One' was the first song for the new album ('Abominate') that Victor showed me. I got this instant feeling of extra air in my lungs and a straightened back. 'The Great One' was the first words that crossed my mind when I heard it. It's a fist in your face! You're welcome!"
The artwork was once again painted by Paolo Girardi.
Friberg comments: "On this album, we pushed ourselves more then before outside our comfort zone. You will hear a lot more heavy metal influences on this album.
"We never aimed to be a death metal band in the ordinary death metal genre. We make exactly the kind of music that we like and that is more to the extreme side but we always try news things and think outside the box and that is what's so great with FIRESPAWN. Always refreshing great fucking metal! This album is no exception, quite the opposite. On 'Abominate', we explore new ground that not many death metal bands have before. Listen to it and you'll know what I'm talking about."
FIRESPAWN's sophomore album, "The Reprobate", was released in April 2017. The follow-up to 2015's "Shadow Realms" was described in a press release as "a merciless piece of evil, ferocious and blasphemous death metal."
Hailing from Stockholm, FIRESPAWN is the unholy union of five death metal veterans with the aim to create blasphemous, sacrilegious and evil death metal, played by sharp minds with ancient souls.
