After six years, three albums, and countless EPs and demos, the members of Heavydeath have decided to move on with a new chapter, thick as bones piled on heavy stones.
Heavydeath as a name is now a completed chapter, and the band’s upcoming album will be released under the band name Den Tunga Döden. Thus, the Sarcophagus in the Sky album and The Newborn single are the last releases from and under the name Heavydeath.
The name change was necessary for the members, as they feel Den Tunga Döden fits their music better, and they wanted a whole new chapter, so to speak. However, the moniker Den Tunga Döden was already a potential band name in 2013 before Heavydeath was chosen. But, the Heavydeath project as it was has simply come to an end.
Nevertheless, as far as music is concerned, Den Tunga Döden will be a continuation of the journey where the Heavydeath chapter ended, but also a development towards darker and heavier dimensions with a name befitting the direction. In short, from now, the band will be seen and heard as Den Tunga Döden.
The first Den Tunga Döden album will be recorded later this year, likely November or December and will be released during the first half of 2020 via Ordo MCM. For more info, consult the links below:

Right now we are doing some small-scale promotion. We are also waiting for the CD version to arrive from the manufacturer. Unfortunately, it has become slightly delayed. But LP and MC were released on time. In addition to this, we will try to make a few shows during the next year.
There is also work going on to release a compilation double CD with mostly demo material. It will probably be released next year. Then there is plans for a split 7” with Excruciation next year.
So the machinery rolls on so to speak. Continue reading …
