STASS is the death metal vehicle for Felix Stass, of the mighty german gothmetal giants Crematory.
The band was formed after Felix and Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, Ribspreader, etc) met at a show, and later collaborated on a song for one of Rogga’s other bands.
After this the need to make more music together arose and the debut album “The Darkside” came in 2017, showcasing dark and melodic death metal.
For the following album, however, Felix had another idea though, and wanted to go full-on dirty but massive old-school death metal. Still melodic but with the groove and grit from the old Swedish sound both in songrwriting and in the albums sound.
The result is “Songs Of Flesh And Decay”, heavily leaning towards the old Sunlight Studio sound and with songs that are both heavy and catchy. To be released on January 2021 via Emanzipation.
