GOD MACABRE - Ashes of Mourning Life


Back in 1991 in the Swedish city Karlstadt a young band, Macabre End, disbanded in order to renew themselves under a new guise, GOD MACABRE. They were one of the first death metal bands and played very intense, dark songs that made their debut album “The Winterlong…” an outstanding classic. However, it took two years for the album to be released, and when it did so in 1993, the band split up.

One of the founding members, Jonas Stalhammar, left to join Utumno and later At The Gates, which keeps him quite busy these days. We are excited that the band reunited to come to the OEF 2020 and perform classic tracks from their album. Moreover, Tobias Gustafsson from Vomitory, is going to be behind the drum kit, which gives their live performance a total blast. If you managed to see Vomitory’s mesmerizing performance at OEF 2019, you know what we mean. Come see them rise again, out of darkness and obscurity: GOD MACABRE!!!


GOD MACABRE formed in 1988 under the name MACABRE END. The first and only demo " Consumed by Darkness" was released in 1990 before the band changed their name to GOD MACABRE in 1991 and recorded "The Winterlong" (released by German label MBR in 1993) which is the bands only album before splitting up early 1992. The album was first re-issued by relapse in 2002 and again in 2014 to coincide with the band starting to do live shows again.
