THE GARDNERZ is a doomy death metal band from the south of Sweden, the band was formed in the middle of 2008 by Wilhelm and in late 2008 Francisco joined The Gardnerz.
A longtime friend of Francisco, drummer Juan Pablo Donoso
(Sadism/Pentagram/Thornafire) was recruited and after a long time of searching for a vocalist Niclas stepped in to the picture. The Gardnerz inked a deal with Abyss Records in late 2010.
The band's debut album, "The System Of Nature", was released as Digipack CD through Abyss Records, on LP through Mechanix Records and Digital Download through Digmetalworld in late 2011.
Boosted by the tremendous response from the debut album the band started working on new material. In 2011 a new drummer, Vedran Bencic, was recruited, and just after a few months of rehearsing the new songs the band decided to record a mini album. The recording started in early 2012 and yielded the "It All Fades" Mini Album containing six doom and death filed tracks.
I arbitrarily pan anything condoned by the living ego that is Axl Rosenberg (I'm not being coy, for the record, that dude is nothing short of an abhorrent affront to the face and spirit of metal) and slept on BT for years. Mistake. I won't deny that they're making the most of modern post/atmospheric-black trends, but they do it well, and those vocals are just fucking intense. Obelisk may be a superior album, but this is certainly worth a listen, and the vinyl/T-shirt combo deal was just too good to pass on. Metalsucks sucks, but Black Table are alright in my book.
