“Take The Lions Share”

Two towering giants of Death Metal – Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, Revolting, Ribspreader, etc.) and Paul Speckmann (Master) – have joined forces to once again kick the world in the ass! Johansson & Speckmann’s The Germs of Circumstance will be released October 9 on Soulseller Records.


Paul Speckmann says:

“We’ve come to album number five with the Johansson-Speckmann project. I take great pride in working with the fellas and creating the lyrics for these killer songs Rogga writes. It’s an honor and a pleasure to work together of course. I hope you all enjoy this latest installment. The Germs of Circumstance is coming to a shop near you!”


Rogga Johansson says:

“For this the fifth album we stepped it up. Its faster and harder and more aggressive than before. And that fits J&S killer. This will make you utterly happy if you like it raw and dirty.”
