Born, bred and based in Malmö, Sweden, gloomy post-punk band Terrible Feelings (unlike their moniker) should send you some good vibes. Their new album Shadows is due out on April 18th via Deranged Records and with it comes a welcome mix of punk, rock and power pop. Soon after its release, Terrible Feelings (who have already played with bands such as JEFF the Brotherhood, Fucked Up and Night Birds) are set to tour the US and Europe in the Summer.

Putrified is based in Stockholm, Sweden and is comprised of one man and one man only. This dude, simply referred to as A. Death (also known for his work in Infuneral), birthed Putrified in the Fall of 2010 in an effort to explore his own conception of “necrotic metal of death & decay.” With a new album, Neurotic Necrotic, set for release in 2012 via Hellthrasher Productions, the future looks bright for this sinister act.

I recently spoke with Tobias Gustafsson, drummer for the Swedish death metal outfit Vomitory, about their newest release Opus Mortis VIII. Since 1989 these guys have been dishing out brutal, skull-crushing metal and they’ve been highly influential in defining and shaping the legendary Swedish death metal scene. Here’s what Gustafsson had to say about the band, the record and their touring plans.
