New Drummer!

Greetings headbangers!

After a long time of uncertainty regarding the drummer position, we are happy to announce that we’ve finally found the right guy for the job. Ladies and gents, please welcome Oscar Krumlinde into the OVERTORTURE ranks!

We met Oscar a while back, and he quickly convinced us he had the chops to help take the band to the next level and beyond going forward into 2014. With the drummer situation resolved, we are more eager than ever to churn out some skull pounding death metal.

Stay tuned for further updates!

Oscar Krumlinde


We’d like to send out a big thank you to everyone who came to see us for the ”At the End the Dead Await Tour” that concluded this past saturday in Aurich, Germany. We had a blast playing, drinking beer and meeting lots of cool people both old and new along the way. Special thanks to Tomasz Wisniewski of Apostasy Records for making the tour happen, all the promoters, the bands we had the pleasure of sharing the stage with and everyone who showed up. Hope to see you all again!

Skål and thanks  // OVERTORTURE


Drummer and founding member Fredrik Widigs has decided to leave OVERTORTURE to focus on other bands and projects. While the rest of us are sad to se him go, we respect his decision with no hard feelings and remain the best of friends. We’d like to thank Fredrik for his contributions to OVERTORTURE and wish him the best in all future endeavours. We now look to the future, which comes to us in the form of blaster extraordinaire Henrik Åberg, known from bands like Sectu, Gates of Ishtar, Mörk Gryning and shitloads of others. In this incarnation OVERTORTURE will continue to spread our particular strain of death metal with unswayed brutality and conviction. It has only just begun!

”It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to leave the drum throne in OVERTORTURE. Even though the decision was hard to make, I felt it was equally necessary. With my busy schedule and conflicting tour plans, it was simply impossible for me to make things work practically. OVERTORTURE needs a drummer that can give the band the time and commitment that it deserves, and I wasn’t that drummer. However, I’m happy to have been a part of the band since the start in 2011 and to have participated on both the debut album ”At The End The Dead Await”, and the successful debut gig in Stockholm together with Hypocrisy. There is no ”bad blood” between me and the band members, and I wish them best of luck in their future endeavors. See you on the road!” – Fredrik

Line-up change: New bass player

We hereby announce that Jonas Torndal has quit the band due to lack of time. He’s still a good friend of ours and this doesn’t affect our personal relationship whatsoever, we’ll still drink good beer and listen to metal together!

But don’t worry folks; we’ve recruited Joakim Antman (The Ugly, ex-Decadence) as the new bass player of OVERTORTURE. Joakim is a great guy and bass player, and is really a great addition to the band! Welcome!
