BAND FEATURING MEMBERS OF NASUM, COLDWORKER, INFANTICIDE, AND MORE…

Axis of Despair – featuring former and present members of Nasum, Coldworker, Infanticide, Volturyon, Livet som insats, Nervgift and Overtorture – are to release their debut full-length Contempt For Man via Southern Lord on the 27th July. Listen to this early taste of the album via the track “A Life of Ceaseless Grind” below.

LISTEN & SHARE AXIS OF DESPAIR “A LIFE OF CEASELESS GRIND”

The band formed in late 2013 by former Coldworker members Joel Fornbrant (vocals), Oskar Pålsson (bass) and Anders Jakobson (drums). The line-up was completed by guitarist Kristofer Jankarls (also in Livet som insats) a few months later and the quartet focused on songwriting. The first recording took place in the spring of 2015 and the 12 tracks were released on the two 7” EP’s Time and again and Mankind crawls.

Following the releases of the EP’s and a few live shows Axis of Despair continued to work on material with the ultimate goal to create a striking grindcore album with an aggressive, yet diverse selection of strong songs. The writing process was spread out over a year until the band went into the studio and begun the recordings in the summer of 2017.

Contempt for Man propels with twenty super-charged raging songs, clocking in around the half an hour mark – short enough to retain attention, and long enough to serve a good taste of the bands particular brand of European grindcore. Track list and artwork by Paul Romano below.
