DISRUPTED is a five-piece death metal band from Ludvika, Sweden. What they have on offer is the kind of crunchy, rotten, heavy-as-a-concrete-block and genuine-to-the-bone death metal that their country was worldwide known for in the late 80's and the early 90's. Think NIHILIST/ENTOMBED, INTERMENT, GRAVE and GOD MACABRE with a healthy dose of D-beat à la more recent acts such as BOMBS OF HADES or BASTARD PRIEST, and you'll get quite an accurate picture of what to expect.
The band was formed in 2012 and consists of Mikael Hanni (UNCANNY) on vocals, Thomas Liljekvist on guitars, Tommy Haglund on bass and Daniel Liljekvist (ex. KATATONIA) on drums. They relased an EP called ’Heavy Death’ in 2014 and the debut full-length album ’Morbid Death’ came out in 2015 and was very well recieved. ‘Morbid Death’ was also nominated for best rock/metal album of the year at the Swedish Manifestgalan event.
In 2019 the next DISRUPTED full-length album will take its form and the band is aiming to play more shows than previous years. So rev up your chainsaw and prepare to rot.
