The slightly terrific Thrash Metal troupe Sterbhaus from Stockholm finally releases their much asked for Christmas-EP in physical format. From 2016 December bandcampers have been enjoying the annual treat of downloading this tremendously effective Christmas adventure for free. The EP is dedicated to Santa Claus Alpine opposite and just before the Eve of Krampus (or Christmas Eve for the unbeliever) this year we can lay our Metal mittens on a hopelessly handsome and exclusive vinyl as well as a digipak CD (both strictly limited). As luck (or misfortune) would have it the date couldn’t be more fitting, as we say farewell on Friday the 13th of December to itching wimpiness, jingle bells and a multitude of unearned Christmas gifts to instead welcome ripping goat guitar riffs in unison, black studded Christmas trees and an excess of capital punishments (dispensed by whip, sack and chain).
If you didn’t already know about Sterbhaus then this is the perfect opportunity to – apart from enriching your Metal related Christmas album collection (which in truth ought to be rather slim), discover a horrifically great band with many hidden treasures in their back catalogue.
