Metal Blade announced that Swedish Death Metal band Lik have been officially signed to the label. Lik was formed in 2014 and only has one full-length album, "Mass Funeral Evocation", which was released in 2015 via War Anthem Records.
If you are fan of bands like Entombed, Dismember, Unleashed, etc, then you will without a doubt dig this band. Below is the official release from Metal Blade.
In the dirt where fallen icons lay to rest, the maggots and seeds spawned in 2014 a new creation. This took the ugly form of Lik, which fittingly means corpse in Swedish. An un-dead creation which offers a plate of savory old school death metal.
Metal Blade welcomes Lik to their roster. Lik comments: “The huge impact Metal Blade has had on the scene is something you can’t overlook, and being a part of this family is a ‘pinch yourself to see if you’re dreaming’ scenario! We can’t stress enough about how psyched we are and it’s just another sign that no frills death metal is still alive and breathing!”
Walking the earth for three cold winters, and with the first offer named Mass Funeral Evocation, it’ll have a sister released in May of 2018.
Lik has no passage as this entity is devoted to make a permanent mark on those who lay down their souls to Rock’n'Roll. The possessed souls to carry out the sonics are Tomas Akvik (Guitar/Vocals), Niklas Sandin (Guitar/Bass) and Christofer Barkensjo (Drums).
