With their unique combination of thrash/black metal and growling punk lyrics in Swedish – Gothenburg based Zombiekrig started an unholy crusade in 2008 to reach the heart and minds of both old school thrash metal fans, the younger black/death audience and every headbanger in between.
Zombiekrig’s 2010 debut “Undantagstillstånd” (“State of Emergency”) (GMR/Border) really stirred things up in their home country and quickly got the appraisal from Swedish press and radio, reaching many Scandinavian metal-album-of-the-year lists.
Later that same year guitarist and song writer el Guapo moved to California where the follow up ”Den Vänstra Stigens Ljus” (”The Light of The Left Path”) was recorded. Released in May 2012 the album crossed the border to Germany where it’s been well recieved in both metal and broader press.
”To me, Jackson has always been the ultimate metal axe. Artists like Marty Friedman, Dave Mustaine, Adrian Smith and of course Randy Rhoads have not only inspired me to become a better instrumentalist – they’ve also produced some of the most groundbreaking and influential music in heavy metal history, which is the soundtrack of my life. To be part of this family and be recognized as an official Jackson artist is truly inspiring and downright awesome.”
