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.
