THIS GIFT IS A CURSE comment: "Going to Japan has always been one of our greatest dreams and something we already had as a goal when we started this band. Now this vision is coming true. It will certainly be something very special and we are really looking forward on unleashing our very own blend of chaos towards new audiences. We will play the best of our old material as well as newly written pieces. Prepare for tar, blood and complete sonic darkness. All hail the Swinelord!"

THIS GIFT IS A CURSE vomit forth a steady stream of pitch-black venomous hate. The Swedes passionately demonstrate that black metal remains fertile ground for new sounds. Combining elements of hardcore and sludge with influences from occult black metal as well as drone, 'All Hail The Swinelord' sets a new benchmark for vitriolic viciousness and massive sonic onslaught. The sophomore full-length of the band from Stockholm has turned out to be a vision of darkness that seeks its equal. THIS GIFT IS A CURSE were founded in Stockholm by a fateful chance meeting of vocalist Jonas A. Holmberg and drummer Johan Nordlund in late summer 2008. The duo soon recruited guitarist Patrik Andersson and Lars Gunnarsson on bass. In March 2010 the Swedish four-piece entered the legendary Sunlight Studios (ENTOMBED, KATATONIA, TIAMAT, DISMEMBER and many more) and recorded their self-titled debut EP with the aid of producer Tomas Skogsberg. 'This Gift Is A Curse' (2010) was well received in the underground and led to the band being invited to perform many shows in their homeland and Europe. During the second half of 2011, THIS GIFT IS A CURSE recorded their first full-length 'I, Gvilt Bearer' at a secret location north of Stockholm. Their producer Magbjork (MELEEH, CHILDREN OF FALL) moved his studio to this specific location to allow the band to unlimited record possibilities. Released in 2012, the album caused a buzz that reached beyond the underground and quickly sold out its first pressings. More touring followed during the next two years. In 2014, THIS GIFT IS A CURSE teamed up with Magbjork once again to record 'All Hail The Swinelord' in an abandoned house close to Stockholm. This monstrous black beast is now ready to be unleashed unto an already anticipating world. Brace for impact!
