THE small BUT important update

Hello fellow.. well, me I guess. I'm honestly the only one reading this blog, and for obvious reasons I'd say. But hey, thats not important, what is important is this update.

My Name is Death has a singer. It's not 100% yet, but we're all so exited like giggly school girls so what the hell! It's a female singer and her name is Erika, I shouldn't tell you more than that, but I can release a small vital fact about the band that probably will change everything about it... And nothing. The lyrics will be in Swedish! OMFG. This is unheard of... Well at least I never heard of us writing lyrics in swedish, it's like Fläskkvartetten, Fleshquartet, My Name is Death, Mitt Namn Döden or Döden mitt Namn... Jag vette tusan.

Jocke did'nt stay with the band as long as we hoped, I guess he had other obligations so we're down to drums and two guitars again.

So we have a couple of gigs comming up. The "tour" of the summer has turned into, three or maybe four gigs. We've played at Kulturnatta in Kalix in June and now we're looking forward to a Spotify contest at the PDOL festival in Piteå, actually the first time we play in Piteå so it will be very fun indeed. And then theres the "1 Day of peace and music" in Piteå the 7 August, a local oneday Peacefestival that we will be attending. Hopefully we will be on stage with a full set except for a bassplayer wich we still lack, but we're so eager to se how it works out with the vocalist and we hope that all gigs from now on have Erika on vocals. Only time will tell.

This past two years have been to say the least turbulent for My Name is Death. It all boils down to the departure of band members. In Rockkarusellen 2010 our setting was: Ruu (G), Macke (G), Fred (B), Stefan (D) and Gode (V). In the District-final of Rockkarusellen 2010 the setting changed to: Ruu (G), Macke (G), Fred (B & V), Stefan (D) due to Gode moving to Gothenburg. And now we think we've found a new guitarist and Fred wants to bang the drums so our new setting for the 2011 tour will be Ruu (G), Macke (G), Jocke (G), Fred (D).

You probably noticed that our current setting is based around three guitars and the following weeks will tell if this is great or awesome (like a hotdog).

We have since 2009 made loads of new music that is as hautingly beautiful and as heavy as an oiltanker. The center piece of 2011 will be "Snösaga". An epic song about 22 minutes long ranging from acoustic dreamy landscapes to steel hard, dark, blood soaked massive riff parts. The song is divided into four chapters Vildhjarta - Snösaga - Eldsjäl - Likstorm that each is about 5 minutes long. The whole song is a tribute to the RPG campaign Snösaga by Riotminds.

Other than that we're planning a full scale tour this summer and our goal is to play at least 10 gigs during the summer. Most of these will probably be played in the northern part of Sweden but we will not decline gigs in the southern part of Sweden neither. Tour dates will be presented here on the website ( and on our Facebook fan page. If you are still reading this and are one of those who haven't joined our facebook page you should probably head over there and join right now since most of our updates are made there.

We will try to keep this page as much up to date as we can. The next post on this blogg will be about our upcomming tour.

Thought that I'd share some shots of the wall decoration I've spent nearly 20h completing. I really don't think it was worth it but I'm at least somewhat pleased with the result. This decoration will be flanked by red velvet on both sides.

The finished result. The painting measures approximately 100x150cm

OCTOBER - Rehersal facilities and the new set

A lot of stuff has happened since the last update.


My Name is Death has got a new rehersal studio. The facility is backened by SV-nords: Totem, A musical union in Piteå. We've started on a small renovation to make it our own and it will look nothing less of awesome when it is done.

The facility has no name right now but we're in the naming process as I write this. If you have any suggestions we're glad to hear them. Anything Lovecraft would be great.

What's missing in these pictures are a large wallpainting of the Kabbalah in gold, the red velvet drapes and some curtains. And of course a gigantic painting 300x130cm with our name on it will dominate the whole place.


We have developed something else.. I can't really say what it is since I really don't know any name for it. But in the essence it's a setlist with "Musical" ambitions. We're putting together a show that will tell a story from beginning to end. The songs make up the core part of the story and to bridge the story between songs we're conducting samplings of different events and acts. It will be so cool and we're so psyched about this right now.


The song part is comming along and we've set the melody part of 7 of the 8 songs that's in our first setlist. Left is the lyrics and to reherse them.

The current setlist (and their full titles) is as follows:

  • Tucked and Wrapped and Ready to Die (like a bird)
  • Sad Part about Death (You won't go to heaven)
  • Dark Days are Coming
  • As the sun Eclipsed over the sunken city the angles dispersed light in thousands of impossible ways and I knew that this was the end
  • Her Heart Pulsed in Pace with the Dying Star
  • He Whose Splendor hath Shattered Worlds
  • Last Sun
  • The Rift Opened from the Other Side

The Summer of 09 has come and more or less gone. MNiD has gone low during the summer but we're pleased to announce two new members and one new song that we're currently rehearsing. We also have a few gigs coming up, more info on this further on.

The new members are:

-Fred Lundman on bass guitar who currently play in local band "Snusc" who by the way are in studio right now recording their first project.

-Andreas Gode, vocals. A local singer/songwriter who plays in local band "Cienfuegos" and has a never-ending solo project in his own name.

As for the new song it's a smoldering MNiD-ballad part in 6/8 tempo. It has been mentioned that the new song partly is one of the most mainstream things we've ever created, if this is true or not, we leave to the listeners to decide. The name of the new song is "The Garden of Love".

In October MNiD will play three gigs in Piteå, Skellefteå and Umeå. We'll be accompanied on the mini-tour by fellow bands Noll and Identitet from Skellefteå, and a Umeå based band which has not yet been set. Dates will be announced here and on the homepage as soon as they get set.

The EP is right now in the changing stages, since we have a singer we want to record the First EP with vocals so this has set us back quite a bit. We where hoping on a 9-9-9 release but it's far from reality right now. Further news on the EP will come further on.

Peace love and all that!

New update. New release date for DDaC is 9-6-6 but I’m not surprised if this will be pushed even further. We're playing with the thought of re-recording our drum tracks with digital drums, but since Edit doesn’t have as much time as everyone else it’ll be a squeeze.

There’s some turbulence among the members also. A couple of weeks ago it was decided that Linnéa had to leave the band for other obligations and as of now MNiD is without a bassplayer. Jesper Asplund from local band The Dazzled has agreed to step in until further notice. Edit is going to take a break from the band and local drummer Alexander will fill her shoes over the summer.

Like it wasn’t bad enough we’re two new members right now we also had our first rehearsal with singer Andreas Gode last week. Hopefully he’ll fit right in despite all the turbulence right now.

Well....we're done. It did'nt go as planed but I'm not disappointed. We set out to record 4 or 5 songs and ended up with 3 good recordings, somehow we screwed up the Eclipsrecording royaly. We have'nt finished mixing the songs yet but we will get it done in time for the releasedate :)

The EP will contain the studio recordings of: Dark Days are Coming, Last Sun, Whose Splendor Hath Shattered Worlds and Ruus homerecordings off Eclips and Hospital.
