Lifelover To Play First Show In North America This November


And possibly their only show in North America.

messe de morts

Depressive metallers Lifelover will be making their North American live debut at the Messe des Morts Festival in Montreal, Quebec Canada in late November. The band, whose founder/guitarist/vocalist Jonas “B” Bergqvist died of an overdose in 2011, have decided to honor their fallen band mate with a select number of international shows. If you’ve ever wanted to see them, this may be your only chance.

The band’s blackened mournful sounds will fit in well with this three-day bummerfest, which in past years has included Samael, Shining (SWE), Merrimack, and Mitochondrion. Lifelover are not the only band to play in North America for the first time on this fest. They will be joined by Ondskapt, Hypothermia, Blacklodge, and for the first time in Canada, Satanic Warmaster.

More bands are still to be confirmed. 3-Day passes can be purchased here.

You can prepare for sadness with their 2011 album “Sjukdom”:

    Man that’s a whole lot of Scandinavian depression in one place.

    Can’t wait to see Satanic Warmaster next month. Should be stupid fun with no smiling.

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    Would’ve expected Kall to play this, since they practically are Lifelover.

  • God

    Satanic warmaster’s name design is confusing. Like, I shouldn’t be able to read it…but I can.

  • Dubzlinger, Malandro

    I dig Lifelover. I was initially drawn to the band because of the spoopy press photos.

    • The Haunting Presence of Tyree

      They have some NSFW album art as well.

      • Dubzlinger, Malandro

        So I learned when I google Lifelover one day.

        • The Haunting Presence of Tyree

          One of them reminds me of the Dwarves album cover for Blood Guts & Pussy minus the dwarf guy.

          • A Most Curious Poo Poo Pile

            Awwwwwwwwwwwww, The Dwarves! Classic Chicago band!

  • CyberneticOrganism

    I love the half-assedness of the masks/costumes in lifelover. Nice effort, guys. GTFO.

  • Waynecro

    I had completely forgotten about this band. Thanks for the friendly reminder!
