Swedish old-school death metal band PUTERAEON was spawned in Alingsås, Sweden 2008 by guitarist & vocalist Jonas Lindblood (Taetre). “I started doing some oldschool riffs that took me back to my roots in death metal“, he stated. Some songs were posted on the internet and there was a big demand for demos. Jonas did all in all three demos during the time of 2008-2009. All demos were very well received within the underground. The demos got really good reviews and loads of interviews were made.

At the same time, he had contacted both Anders Malmström, drums (ex-Nominon, Prophanity, Immemoreal, ex-Inverted), and Daniel Vandija, bass (13itch). And they were persuaded to join. But all took some time.

When the band finally got together and started rehearsing, the contract with Cyclone Empire was already inked. Hasse Sörensen who was in the band a short while on guitar was replaced by Rune Foss (Exempt, Reclusion, Aggro). Finally, in early 2011, the band is all set and ready to go. “The Esoteric Order” (T.E.O) mixed and mastered by Andy LaRocque @ Sonic Train studios, was an old-school Swedish death metal album, blasting with rot and phlegm.

Following the success of “T.E.O”, Puteraeon hit the stage for the first time at Överrocken in Alingsås, Sweden. During the same year, the Swedish cities Gothenburg (twice) and Finspång got haunted by the group and also the highlight Party San Open Air.

Early 2012, after a period of writing songs, Puteraeon hit the stage in Västervik (SE) in between recordings of the follow up to “T.E.O”, entitled “Cult Cthulhu” (C.C). The album was recorded with technician/producer/engineer/sound tech Kristian RZA Isaksson. The final mix and master again at Sonic Train Studios and Andy LaRoque. The album was released on June via Cyclone Empire. With the arrival of the autumn, Puteraeon made yet another visit to Gothenburg and for the first time a gig in Denmark – Aalborg metal festival. To end the year 2012 Puteraeon played (and also shoot part of the “The Azatoth Cycle” video) at the R.I.P gig at one of their hometown’s primary venues (the local governments in Sweden do not understand true culture as it was them who shut the venue down). A week later they went down to Berlin for the Nocturnus Festival vol.II.

2013 was a busy year but not releasing nor doing too many live shows. However, a small really successful mini-tour with fellow deathsters Revel In Flesh took place during early summer ending with Protzen Open Air.

2014 took a turn for the better and they part-took the infamous “Imperial Anthems” series, the number 13 in the suite. A 7″ split with Revel In Flesh (tough Puteraeon songs were recorded during 2013 by RZA as engineer). The band also recorded the “The Crawling Chaos” album at their newly created Studio Hatecraft. Mixing and mastering were again done by Andy La Rocque at Sonic Train Studios. The album was released by Cyclone Empire Records. Various gigs were done as well with the highlight of the year; Stockholm Death Fest!

2015 didn’t pass too quiet but was mainly focused on creating a better studio and doing a few select gigs such as opening for The Crown before they headed off to Japan and opening for Cut Up for their release fest.

2016 and no longer under the banner of a record label the group decided to finish up the creation of Studio Hatecraft. During the fall of 2016, they started recording  the “The Empires Of Death” EP. Mixing and mastering were taken care by Dan Svanö. The EP was released as a 7″ by Swedish label Growls from the Underground. During late 2017 and early 2018, five new songs were written and recorded. Same procedure; Studio Hatecraft, Dan Swanö, and Growls from the Underground. This time the format was 12″ and it was released digitally in April 2018.

In 2020 it was time to delve deeper into the mountains of madness. Puteraeon signed a deal with Emanzipation Productions and released their latest opus “The Cthulhian Pulse: Call from the Dead City”. It was a mark in the band’s discography: mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö (Bloodbath, Edge Of Sanity) and cover artwork done by Juanjo Castellano (Avulsed, Order Ogan, Gates Of Ishtar), it contained ten tracks of pure Lovecraftian horror Swedish death metal.

Now in 2024, celebrating their 15th anniversary as a band, the Swedish extreme stalwarts don’t show any signs of slowing down or exploring new musical paths. Instead, they remain firmly in their bonecrushing Lovecraft-inspired death metal approach. 

Coherent with this vision, the quartet looked back at their demos and debut album and re-recorded some of their old songs for this digital EP that celebrates a decade and a half of Chtulhian terror music, with the sound being mixed and mastered once again by Dan Swanö. Five songs were chosen, from the first one Puteraeon ever wrote (“The Plague”, from their 2008 demo “Fascination For Mutilation” demo), until “Storm Over Devil’s Reef”, the opening track from the band’s 2011 debut album, with its rumbling intro and blasting velocity. “Whispers Of The Dead”, “Graverobber” (both from the second demo “The Requiem, released back in 2008), as well as “Dead Once More” (from the Re-Animator-inspired 2009 demo “The Extraordinary Work Of Herbert West”) complete “Quindecennial Horror”, with Puteraeon staring firmly at the abyss, while the abyss stares back at them.

“Quindecennial Horror” is out now on all streaming services via Emanzipation Productions.
