Creeping Flesh, from Gothenburg Sweden, formed in 2013 to play old school death metal inspired by Bolt Thrower, Asphyx, and Hail of Bullets, mixed with Swedish melody and sound. Simply put: catchy, headbanging death metal, great on record, and even better live!
Established in Swedish Death Metal haven Gothenburg in 2013, Creeping Flesh started on a mission to play old school death metal in the style of bands such as Bolt Thrower, Asphyx and Hail of Bullets, mixed with Swedish melody and sound. One year later, their first release, the EP Unravelled by War (2014) firmly established the sound of the band. The release was soon to be followed by two more EPs; and the debut album “Into the Meat Grinder” in 2019.Formed by William Persson Öberg, Sofus Stille, Martin Kadhammar (ex Strykjärn), Robert Karlsson (ex Misfire), and Conny Nyberg, the band did several successful live shows, including a debut gig at Gothenburg Deathfest in 2015, and a tour of England in 2017. Following the departure of bass player Conny Nyberg, friend of the band Korp Thidrandir joined to complete the lineup, and saw the band play bigger stages with festival shows at both House of Metal and Gefle Metal Festival in Sweden in 2019. After the Corona pandemic, Robert Karlsson decided to leave the band as vocalist and has been replaced by Filip Fougstedt (Bleeding Utopia/ex Strykjärn), also a long time friend of the band. In April 2021 they recorded their sophomore album "...And Then the Bombs Came", which will be released by Emanzipation Productions on 11.02.2022.
