The urban myth of French soldiers throwing their wooden shoes (named “sabot”) into the machinery at the time of the industrial revolution – hence giving rise to the word “Sabotage” may be fiction, but it’s an interesting allegory to when fate, reality, and the industry threw their wooden shoes in the machinery of one Stockholm based act in the most untimely of moments. What is so surprising is how amazingly well-oiled and blisteringly convincing the machinery of Sterbhaus remains with all those wooden shoes rattling around in there. The new live album “Necrostabbing at Gota Kallare – Live in Stockholm”, which is so timely released now in the midst of the Covid pandemic shows Sterbhaus at their very best… and that has always been live. It’s a hungry and energetic live show from a band eager to exact revenge from having been stranded locally when all booked tours after the new album release were canceled. The whole affair was actually also filmed and will be available on social media together with this live album.
Sterbhaus is the home of Marcus Hammarström (also in Shining), Erik Röjås (also in Ondskapt), Jimmy Ahovalli and at this time also Simon Olovsson (now in Avslut).
