5.0 out of 5 stars "Death's a solution to life's dead illusions!", 13 July 2007
This review is from: Clandestine (Audio CD)
'Left Hand Path' was a phenomenal enough album, but Entombed just manage to better it with the second album 'Clandestine'. Searing buzzsaw guitar tones bludgeon the listener, but it's the songwriting that really lifts 'Cladestine' into the realms of the classic - more than just a collection of great riffs these are songs that ebb and flow, with the album ranging from incredibly heavy doom-like slow dirges to high-speed frantic workouts where it seems the band are barely in control of themselves (check out the mad ending of 'Chaos Breed'!). The album is also unique for being the only Entombed album to feature drummer Nicke Andersson on (uncredited) lead vocals, and he provides a worthy replacement for LG Petrov providing some insane bellows and soaring screams. After this Entombed would begin to change their style into a softer 'death and roll' approach which is a shame, but who knows - perhaps having made the ultiamte death metal album they felt they would never be able to better it? Whatever, 'Clandestine' remains the best album Entombed have ever recorded, and definately one of the all time best death metal albums by any band. Essential.

This is the best death metal album ever recorded. I get the new stuff like the faceless and love its technical prowess. But in my mind it's all about the sludgy slimey buzz saw sounding guitars, high speed almost punk sensibilities and it's stripped back production. I could imagine this album was recorded live in the studio. This is my mind is true death metal. This cd is brutal from its heavy as fudge guitar work, grizzly growls and nicke anderson proving that he really was the epitome of top-class drummers before going on to play guitar for hellacopters. You will never own or hear a better death metal cd than this and if you are metal there is no excuse not to own this disc. Best tracks among this legendary tracklisting are Crawl and Sinners Bleed. Awesome stuff.
By the way the vocalist is Jonny Dordevic not Nicke Anderson which is credited in the album inlay.

Jonny Dordevic only came in to play the songs live, but was credited on the album as vocalist to avoid confusion. The vocalist on the album, however, was in fact Nicke.
