Biography


Founded in early 2006 LIFELESS have been performing Traditional Death Metal ever since. In 2007 we recorded our debut album "Beyond The Threshold Of Death" all by ourselves. The mastering was done by Vesa Kenttäkumpu from Swedish Death Metal legends EVOCATION.

In fall 2009 we signed a deal with US based Ibex Moon Records - the label of INCANTATION mastermind John McEntee - on which "Beyond The Threshold Of Death" was officially re-released in June 2010 including new artwork and bonus track.

In 2011 we parted ways with Ibex Moon Records to get more reputation on the European market. We finally signed a new deal with Germany based FDA-REKOTZ (Master, Entrails, Deserted Fear, Chapel Of Disease, Revel In Flesh and many others).

Our first release on this label was a split 7inch EP called "Chapel Of A Lifeless Cult" with our labelmates CHAPEL OF DISEASE.

In summer 2011 Andy (g.) - one of the founding members of LIFELESS - decided to leave the band due to the lack of time and motivation. He has been replaced by Jan.

The second full length album "Godconstruct" was released on 1st of March 2013 and includes 12 songs of total old skull Death fucking Metal!

Besides many clubshows throughout the years alongside bands like DEATH (DTA-Tours), UNLEASHED (Swe), GORGUTS (CAN), EVOCATION (SWE), DEMONICAL (SWE) and many others we played some great Festivals in 2015 – namely OBSCENE EXTREME FESTIVAL (CZ), PARTY SAN OPEN AIR (D) and SUMMER BREEZE OPEN AIR (D).

In August 2015 we parted ways with our bassist Daniel W. due to musical reasons. He has been replaced by Sascha who was our session-bassist before.

Jan and Marc got endorsed by SERPENT KING GUITARS - the company of Henri Sattler, guitarist/vocalist of legendary GOD DETHRONED.

In Fall 2015 a new, unreleased song was unleashed upon mankind on the 12inch Split-EP called “Sermon Of Ungodly Dreams” along with our brothers from ARROGANZ, OBSCURE INFINITY and RECKLESS MANSLAUGHTER - released through SUPREME CHAOS RECORDS.

In early 2016 Daniel got endoresed by Ice Stix (Michael Ehre (Gamma Ray), Frederik Ehmke (Blind Guardian) and many others...).

On July 7th in 2017, we finally released our third full length album called "The Occult Mastery" again on F.D.A.-Records.

"Selten hat es in letzter Zeit eine deutsche Band beeindruckender geschafft, hohes Musikverständnis mit kraftvoller, brutaler Energie und mitreißenden Melodien zu kombinieren. Saustark!" - ROCK HARD MAGAZIN /8,5/10 Punkte

"Schweden im Kohlenpott, Death Metal, intensiv, brutal und vor allem sehr, sehr klassisch" - LEGACY MAGAZIN

"LIFELESS sind an der Spritze ihres Schaffens angekommen" -METAL HAMMER MAGAZIN / Soundcheck Platz #8

"Solid, satisfying, and extremely enjoyable; The Occult Mastery hits the spot. A recommended listen for all fans of the Swedish style for sure." WONDERBOX METAL

"Lifeless creates another recording that remains true to the Swedish influenced death metal style of previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Damnation and Armageddon themes." - EXTREME METAL ZINE

"this new album definitely vaults the band into Europes Top 20 of Death Metal Bands" - VOICES FROM THE DARKSIDE

"Ein herrlich frisches Death Metal Album" - METAL ONLY / 8,5/10 Punkte/p>

"Zweifelsfrei sehr, sehr geil." - HELL IS OPEN / 7,5/10 Punkte

"Die schwedischen Westfalen hauen erneut mächtig auf den Pudding und lassen den geneigten Altvorderen die gute alte Zeit neu auferstehen und vergessen, dass deren große Vorbilder längt nicht mehr unter uns weilen. Ein Paukenschlag für alle Elchtod-Fanatiker!" - ZEPHYRS ODEM

"LIFELESS setzen mit dem berühmten dritten Album vehement zum Sprung an die einheimische Spitze an!" - MEGA METAL

"Mit noch mehr Durchschlagskraft brillieren Lifeless auf Album Nr. 2 mit typisch schwedischen Arrangements zwischen Abwechslung, Melodie und der wilden unbekümmerten Aggression der Frühphasen ihrer offensichtlichen Idole. Lifeless sind neben Revel In Flesh im Moment DIE deutschen Nachlassverwalter der klassischen HM2-Schule!" - NECROSLAUGHTER

"Lifeless können auf ihren dritten Album beweisen, dass es auch in Deutschland eine starke Death Metal Szene gibt. Die Burschen lassen den guten alten schwedischen Death Metal mit dem typischen Sound und der ganz speziellen Atmosphäre wieder auferleben und bieten alles das, was man von einen guten Death Metal Album erwartet. Besonders "Progenies of a cursed seed" hat es mir angetan. Ein Nackenbrecher. Geile Riffs, geile Vox und eine geile Atmosphäre. Ein gutes Death Metal Album mit geiler Produktion und richtig coolem Cover, welches vom Gitarrist und Sänger Marc selber stammt." - POSSESSED MAGAZIN

"Dufte! So schön kann Death Metal sein..." - XXL ROCK

"LIFELESS geht auch auf Album Nummer drei seinen Weg konsequent weiter und liefert rhythmisch großartige Todesstahl-Hymnen ab" - TOTGEHOERT

"Knackige Mischung aus viel altem Schwedentod mit einer ordentlichen Prise UK-Death mit Melodien fürs Ohr!" - AMBOSS MAGAZIN

"Lifeless katapultieren sich mit "The Occult Mastery" voller Hingabe, Herzblut und betörender Intensität nun endgültig in die oberste Liga des schwedisch inspirierten Death Metals, denn das Album ist die absolute Macht und darf absolut in keiner Sammlung fehlen! Es führt also kein Weg an dieser Scheibe vorbei!" - HOTEL666

"LIFELESS wandern so ausgiebig den "Left Hand Path" in Richtung "Everflowing Stream", dass es nur so skogsbergt. Und haben mit "From Chaos Our Order Shall Rise" und "Throes Of Dawn" sogar zwei veritable Hits dabei!" - RADIO GEHACKTES
