Küntsquäd release second single “Xhrist”

After recently announcing a record deal with Wormholedeath Records for their debut self-titled album, out February 24th, and unleashing the first single “Gods Of War” in celebration, Melbourne crustmetal/deathpunk band Küntsquäd are now dropping the second single titled “Xhrist”.

Hailing from the city of Melbourne in Australia, Küntsquäd are a 4 piece crustmetal/deathpunk band spearheaded by frontwoman Paula Condell who also wields a guitar and rounded out by Steve Esler on guitar, Brett Eldridge on bass, and Adam Holmes behind the kit. The band takes inspiration from such acts as Sepultura, Discharge, Damaged, and Carcass while incorporating death/black/doom metal and crusty punk influences, blending it all in a concoction of pure, unadulterated in-your-face music.

Coming from various other projects including Velvet Hammer, Damnzal, Triphammer, Solemn Ceremony, Eldritch Rites, Open Door of Doom, and more, Küntsquäd are well-weathered in the industry with numerous tours across Australia and appearances at festivals, club shows, and more.

Küntsquäd’s long-awaited debut “self-titled” album is ready to be unleashed upon the world, inking a management deal with Black-Roos Entertainment to help propel the band into the next phase of their career.
