STERBHAUS‘ new live album Necrostabbing at Göta Källare – Live in Stockholm charted at #1 (for physical sales) on the week of its release in Sweden and that is now complemented with the release of the third single “Grudgeholder+Hatemonger”. The choice for third single is directly related to what fans and reviewers listed as their top choice on the album… and it is a blistering thrasher that is impossible not to love – if you like your Metal fast, furious and with spitting lyrics.
The new “Grudgeholder+Hatemonger” live video also features a somewhat legendary TV-clip from Swedish public service TV originally broadcasted in the mid 80s. A TV show that took it upon themselves to safeguard Swedish morality disguised with an obvious Christian Bible bashing agenda – an agenda that in the end was financed by the tax payers. The object of the smear campaign for this specific clip was the legendary band W.A.S.P. It is hilarious to watch today – albeit a bit scary.
”Necrostabbing at Göta Källare – Live in Stockholm” took most of the Metal scene by surprise when it was released on July the 9th. It shows Sterbhaus at their best – which is in a highly energetic live setting. The band is relentless and the show is a complete gem. It was also filmed in its entirety and on the release date of the album Sterbhaus streamed the whole show in a live online event.
If You missed out on the streaming event, make sure to check out the two previous singles/live videos (“Absolutely Do Not Die – Live” and “New Level of Malevolence – Live”) and why not give the bands parody of reaction videos a spin as well?
To have ”Necrostabbing at Göta Källare – Live in Stockholm debut at #1 in Sweden for physical sales and #9 for all Metal sales was an unprecedented and enormously pleasant surprise for the Swedes. Sterbhaus is the home of Marcus Hammarström (also in Shining), Erik Röjås (also in Ondskapt), Jimmy Ahovalli and at this time also Simon Olovsson (now in Avslut).
