They Had No Names




Recently signed to Svart Records and with a full-length due sometime in 2015, Heavydeath continue to unearth recordings that are further proof of the prolific songwriting skills of Nicklas Rudolfsson.

This time around Caligari Records is proud to present the mini album They Had No Names, comprised of Demo VI and Demo VII, this four song tape crafts away at the trippy mid tempo death doom path of previous recordings and exemplifies a sound that is by now entirely Heavydeath's own.

Recorded in spring 2014.
Produced by N. Rudolfsson and J. Bäckman.
Music and lyrics by N. Rudolfsson.
Nicklas Rudolfsson – electric guitar, vocals
Johan Bäckman – electric bass guitar
Leif (session) – drums

'Let Heavydeath lock its jaws around you and carry you off.'
Lurkers Path

'...few are able to actually evoke that bad trip vibe through music alone, in fact I’d go so far as to say that Heavydeath are currently rivaled only by Electric Wizard in this department. But Forebear Avenger isn’t just some brown acid freak-out; it feels like the last trip you’ll ever take, straight into the bowels of the abyss.'
That's How Kids Dies

'The most criminally under-appreciated genius in Doom Metal – particularly of the ultra-dark Death-tinged variety – is undoubtedly Nicklas Rudolfsson' & 'It’s knuckle-dragging, primal Doom Metal, like Hellhammer on Robitussin with occasional flourishes of the more high brow approach Rudolfsson took with The Funeral Orchestra.'
Hellride Music

'...cobwebbed vintage death metal riffs collapse under their own weight, pooling into a sluggish river of doom and gloom that churns biliously beneath a lo-fi layer of foggy distortion.'

'They conjure up that kind of funeral doom that all of the ghosts of Hades head bang to. Thick, monolithic bass lines cover your eyes until all you hear is the disappearance of all of humanity. Their riffs guide you through the portal to the unliving, where the only light is the flames of the underworld. I really freaking dig the vocals, they are an instrument unto themselves…'
Cvlt Nation

'Lovers of the obscure, heavy and special styles should check out HEAVYDEATH as much as those Doom lunatics out there, since this band is definitely not for everyone, but for those who love the wayward sons of mother Doom.'
Voices From the Darkside

Limited to 100 copies.

This is the 18th release of CALIGARI Records.
