5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Carnage, 9 Sep 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Resurrection Through Carnage (Audio CD)
Unlike some people, when I saw this band was headed up by Mike Akerfeldt of Opeth fame, I was actually put off. Opeth are not one of my best loved outfits, after parting with hard earned green for Still Life, and finding out the hard way that prog death metal is not for me. Luckily, Century media have a lovely little audio set up on their web site and I could sample the first track from this excellent album.
What can be said about this album that hasn't been said already? Not much really, apart from the fact that just about every song is an "anthem" in the true meaning of the word. Bathe in Blood is this albums "Dead by Dawn". But just about every other track has some inspired growl along moments.
The sound is very "Swedeath", in that gruff yet very very catchy way that only Swedish death metal bands can do. The "fuzzy" sound on this album is a real bonus to the material. Kind of like early Pungent Stench, but with some decent artistic direction and killer riffs.(Sorry. I hate P. Stench with a passion). Think the sound, not the content.
Its all old skool style playing. No blast beats here. A top quality riff-fest and vocals that inspire outbreaks of "sing-a-long" syndrome.
Buy it, and you will chanting the choruses for weeks.
If you are the sort of person that has to sit down and hold their chin in deep silent contemplation listening to the likes of Akercocke or Nile, then I guarantee you'll be wearing a party hat and dancing to this like a loony. Its fun and easy on the ear (well... easy in a nasty death metal way grrrrrrr!!!)
A really catchy and original death metal offering.
