Melbourne crustmetal/deathpunk band Küntsquäd are excited to announce they have inked a record deal with European label Wormholedeath for their upcoming debut album release. The self-titled album will be released worldwide on February 24th, 2023. With the announcement comes the release of the first single, “Gods Of War.”

Hailing from the city of Melbourne in Australia, Küntsquäd are a four-piece spearheaded by frontwoman Paula Condell who also wields a guitar and rounded out by Steve Esler on guitar, Brett Eldridge on bass, and Adam Holmes behind the kit. The band takes inspiration from such acts as Sepultura, Discharge, Damaged, and Carcass while incorporating death/black/doom metal and crusty punk influences, blending it all in a concoction of pure, unadulterated in-your-face music.
