In January 2017, Sweeping Death released their first EP ‘Astoria’, booked 40 shows and played among others also as a support for Destruction and Sepultura. They were ‘Heroes of Tomorrow’ in Metal Hammer and received good reviews from other media. Musically ‘Astoria’ is somewhere between Heavy and Thrash and bands like Iron Maiden, Satan and Anthrax inspired our sound and look.
In 2018, came the first long-player ‘In Lucid’ which was produced together with Rolf Munkes (Tony Martin, Crematory). On this record, Sweeping Death tried to combine influences from black, heavy and progressive metal in such a way that a unique mix is created that surprises the listener. Leaning on bands like In Solitude and Tribulation with a good portion of sophisticated heavy metal. The artwork is from Adrian Baxter (Mayhem, Cloak). Over the next two years, Sweeping Death played around 70 gigs, including the first co-headlining tour with Pripjat, opening for bands like Tribulation, Skull Fist, Striker, Loudness, Tankard, Mantar, Night Demon…. and among others in Sweden, France, Czech Republic, Austria and Italy.
German Progressive Metallers Sweeping Death are back with a new Ep entitled “Tristesse”, the sounds that we can taste while listening, range from classic metal to elements more inclined to progressive, thus creating an album with raw and intense sounds.
Without too many compliments the Germans Sweeping Death, show good technical skills and an excellent bag of ideas that made available for this new release, give the fans an Ep of exquisite workmanship and with an undisputed remarkable sound impact.
A short Listening (just three tracks) enough to understand that the band is serious and not so subtle when it comes to playing hard and mean, creating something original that will not struggle to capture the attention of lovers such.
