This review is from: Left Hand Path (Audio CD)
Entombed's debut album and the ground zero for Swedish death metal, 'Left Hand Path' is a bona fide classic that still stands up well today. A revolutionary guitar tone whose fuzzed out mid-tones were in complete contrast to the standard top-and-bottom-heavy US-style death metal bands of the time, and an album crammed with riffs so immense even the unfortunate lack of any lyric sheet can't stop these songs worming their way into your head. At this early stage in their career Entombed were playing full-throttle death metal and compared to this the majority of the bands later watered-down 'death and roll' sounds positivly tame. For me Entombed slightly improved on this forumla with their 2nd album 'Clandestine', but this is still unmissable stuff for metal fans.
