Mezzrow are back after 30 years! The legendary thrash metal band from Sweden, is back with new material after more than three decades of absence.
Mezzrow built themselves a name in the thrash metal scene during the late eighties with their critically acclaimed demo tapes, „Frozen Soul“ and „Cross of Tormention“. In 1990 they released their classic debut album „Then Came the Killing“ through Active Records, a subsidiary of Music for Nations. The album is still today considered as one of the best, if not the best, thrash metal releases from Sweden and Scandinavia. This classic album was re-mastered during 2021, together with all their demos, and released through Hammerheart Records in May 2022.
During 2021 Mezzrow rose from the ashes, when bass player Conny Welén (ex-Hexenhaus) and singer Uffe Pettersson decided to make a new mark in the thrash metal world of today and have together with new guitarists Magnus Söderman (Nightrage) and Ronnie Björnström (ex-Defiatory, ex-Aeon) written new killer songs, which have pure thrash metal top-class written all over them. The line-up was completed by excellent drummer Jon Skäre (Defiatory, Hulkoff) and the band is currently laying the finishing touches on the recordings, which will be released in spring 2023 on Fireflash Records.
The album was produced by Conny Welén, Ronnie Björnström and Magnus Söderman. The excellent mixing and mastering were done by sound wizard Ronnie Björnström (Sorcerer, Meshuggah, 220 Volt a.o.). The artwork for the cover must of course suit the music and therefore it was handled by the great Pär Olofsson who, among tons of other cool covers, recently did the cover for Exodus latest release „Persona Non Grata“.
