MARTYRDOD was formed in 2001 by Mikael Kjellman (guitar) and Jens Backelin (drums) in Stockholm. They quickly recruited friends Dawa (vocals) and Axel Gustavsson (bass). This line-up recorded the first self-titled album (2003) in studio Necromorbus. The sound was what today would be described as blackened crust. Shortly after the release Dawa left the band and Pontus joined on second guitar.For the second album "In Extremis" (2005), MARTYRDOD signed a one-off record deal with American punk label Havoc Records enabling recording in the already legendary Studio Fredman. Mikael took over vocal duties, Axel left and Per Nilsson (Accursed) joined on bass. MARTYRDOD had now established their trademark sound as a crossover between metal and crust hardcore.The third MARTYRDOD album "Sekt" (2009) was recorded in a DIY-fashion on the band's own expense and released through German DIY labels La Familia Releases as well as Farewell Records. In the period that followed, Anton Gronholm (Accursed, Get Up And Goers, Sunday Morning Einsteins) replaced Per on bass.After touring the US in 2011 with friends in the band No Statik, MARTYRDOD signed a three-record deal with American label Southern Lord Records. Again Studio Fredman was chosen and the fourth album "Paranoia" was released in 2012. In support of the album MARTYRDOD joined Black Breath and other label-mates on the 2012 "Power of the Riff" Tour around the US.The writing process for the fifth MARTYRDOD record started and a tour with Finnish grind act Rotten Sound over Europe was made in early 2013, as Anton sadly left the band."Elddop" (2014) marked a new high point in regards to scene response for the band and solidified the trust in Studio Fredman as the band's go-to production partner. Fredrik Reinedahl (producer/engineer for Solstafir, Burst, Abandon, etc.) was recruited to fill in on bass. MARTYRDOD toured Europe the same year as support for the legendary American metalcore act Converge.In 2015 MARTYRDOD made a bunch of festival appearances including Marylan
