Swedish crustcore / d-beat band MARTYRDÖD was founded in Göteborg in 2001. While keeping true to the
d-beat driven “Käng” crustpunk style they have managed to minister their unique melodious sound through six full length albums and countless live shows.
In 2017 they signed with Century Media Records and will start working towards on a seventh album for release some time during 2018.
The three latest and highly praised albums “Paranoia”(2011), “Elddop”(2014) and "List"(2017) completed their previous label engagemeng with Southern Lord. From touring the US with Black Breath, Europe with Rotten Sound and Converge, Martydöd has proven to be a most successful live act. The lineup has changed little throughout the years. The latest addition of Tim Rosenqvist who took over Bass duties from Fredrik Reinedahl in 2017 completes the strong four piece with frontman, composer and lyricist Mikael Kjellman (also in Skitsystem), guitarist Pontus Redig (also in Agrimonia, Miasmal) and drummer Jens Bäckelin (also in Iron Lamb).
