Promoting metal as art and culture

Döda Havet

Tid Och Rum by Döda Havet Our band name Döda Havet wasn’t an obvious pick. As I suppose many bands do we thought about different names, tasted the words and pondered about their meaning. The name Döda Havet stuck, to me mainly because I liked the picture that I painted in my head, where the…

Little King

Amuse De Q by Little King Our music is like the time you lost your virginity to that high-end hooker your boys paid for, and you can’t remember it the next day because you’d been on a two-day bender for your birthday. Did it even happen? Does it count? How are you going to pay…

Conny Ochs
