Pantokrator 2021

Swedish death metal stalwarts Pantokrator are back with a new single and music video, “We the People.” The band, formed in 1996, will be releasing Marching Out of Babylon on Jan. 29, and “We the People” is the first single from the new release. Marching Out of Babylon marks the first release from the band since 2014’s critically-acclaimed Incarnate.

The song “encompasses the essence” of what the Swedish death metal veterans are about, the band wrote to HM.

“‘We the People’ is a kick in the groin to the systems that hold us down and a call to arms to all of us that stand up for democracy. It’s all draped in headbanging rhythms, Latin phrases, and Martin Luther King samples.”

Preorders for the release are available now at Nordic Mission, including a pretty impressive double-fold poster that accompanies the vinyl release.

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
