New "Made in Sweden" Column--God Macabre!
Posted on 11/17/2017 6:24:00 PM
Continuing our ongoing look at the Swedish extreme music scene of the late 80s/early 90s.

GOD MACABRE - THE WINTERLONG…
A band that was on the cusp of joining the "big boys" was Macabre End, or what would eventually become God Macabre. 1991 was a defining year for Swedish death metal with debuts from the likes of Dismember, Unleashed, Grave and Therion. God Macabre should have been caught up in that movement with their debut album release in early 1992. The record was created in December of 1991 and easily could have rode the momentum of the scene.

They didn't.
