Go Loud Agency is proud to welcome Swedish death metal group Faustus to the family!
Hailing from, Bollnäs, a small town in the middle of Sweden, the band was founded in 2011. But it wasn’t until the middle of the pandemic that Faustus set out to write their heaviest album yet: the kind of record that sounds like a “freight-train-full-of-sledgehammers-headed-straight-towards-your-whole-family”, to quote the band’s words.
In 2021, the five-piece headed to Gothenburg’s Obsidian Recordings, situated in Studio Fredman to record their forthcoming album Memoriam. The band hired the legendary Robert Kukla and Fredrik Nordström to oversee production. “We have given 110% of our soul in these songs, productions and even music/lyric videos and this is just a taste of our artistic expression” says the band.
Among their most recent accomplishments, the band got to play the renowned Gefle Metal Festival 2022 (footage available here), sharing the stage with musical giants such as Meshuggah, Mayhem, Jinjer, Soilwork, to name a few.
The debut single off the band’s upcoming LP, “Sleep“, is set to be released on all the main digital platforms on October 7th (you can pre-save the song by clicking here).
