Video Premiere: Puteraeon – “The Sleeping Dread”

Since 2008, the tentacle-bearded Swedish quartet known as Puteraeon have unleashed a steady but always-surprising barrage of Lovecraftian atmospheric death metal releases. This fall Puteraeon are set to release their fourth album, The Cthulhian Pulse: Call From The Dead City, mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö. For his part, the legendary engineer calls the Swedes’ fourth effort “one of the better Death Metal albums [he’s] ever mixed,” adding that it combines “mysterious and adventurous musical compositions” with “raw and brutal HM2 SweDeath vibe.” 

Today we have the pleasure of dropping right before our readers’ unsuspecting googly eyes the mind-bending new video from Puteraeon for “The Sleeping Dread,” the second track from their brand-new album. 

“First pulse. This is the path of fear,” warns Jonas Lindblood, Puteraeon’s guitarist. “This song was the foundation and one of the first songs written of the The Cthulhian Pulse: Call From The Dead City, drawing a clear line of what we wanted to do. In many ways, ‘The Sleeping Dread’ is the backbone, the spinal cord of the Cthulhian beast.”
