Swedish death metal practitioners Wombbbath made for a plesant surprise at last year’s Maryland Deathfest. Their early Sunday set was easily one of the most entertaining and memorable half hours of the weekend, thanks in no small part to vocalist Jonny Petterson and Guitarist Håkan Stuvemark, who project commanding authority and perform an often-sloppy style with precision. Prolific musicians, the pair of them also perform in six other bands between the two of them, and are about to add a seventh: Pale King, whose debut album Monolith of the Malign will be released on April 21 via Soulseller records. Awash in keys courtesy of Petterson, it’s a more subtle album than anything Wombbath have done, but still features that project’s infectious rhythmic approach.
