Very aggressive especially vocal wise with an almost Hardcore approach to the singing at times. Some Death Metaller's may find this a bit too "groove" in places (reminded me of a nastier Corrosion Of Conformity) but there you go. Other reviewers have mentioned the Motorhead & Discharge influences. I would fully agree especially with regards to Lemmy's wolf pack.
Particularly liked the bass on this. Nice and growling in the mix. Bass man, Lars Rosenberg joined a favourite of mine a few years later, the mighty Therion & worked the four strings on the Theli album (well worth getting if you like Symphonic Metal).
Production is good all round.
Stand out track is closer, Out Of Hand - a real in your face stomper!!
Will be looking to check out more of these guys (I liked the Hollowman EP too) including the earlier more out & out Death Metal stuff. Yet another impressive Swedish act to file alongside Therion, Clawfinger and Opeth...
Basically, i think it's great, it's cheap too, even a new copy.
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, BUY THIS "CLEAN" VERSION OF THE ALBUM.
You will be doing yourself a severe disservice, because the best track on the album, and one of Entombed's best-known classics, "Out Of Hand", is missing, and all because it mentions a certain word a couple of times.
This three-star review reflects the damage caused to the album by leaving off "Out Of Hand". The overall effect is similar to fitting a Ferrari with a 1.0-litre Fiat Uno engine - looks good, but drive it and you'll find there's something seriously wrong.
Do yourself a huge favour and pick up the proper ten-track version with "Out Of Hand" on it. That album rates five stars, and then some.
It appears that Entombed were utterly unconcerned at whispers of them 'selling out' but releaseing an album that was about as death metal as Sum 41, because this album is 100 %, balls out rock n' roll (albeit with an extremely heavy guitar sound and much, much faster). The immense groove of these tracks means that the album just races past, yet manages to stick in your memory like some obscene advertising jingle.
The chunky riffs on 'Rotten Soil', 'Eyemaster' and the magnificent 'Hollowman' are reminiscent of The Hellacopters (who were formed by ex-member Nicke Andersson upon leaving Entombed), with a dirty, greasy sound that you just have to tap your foot to. There are still moments where their death metal heritage is exposed: 'Heavens Die' and 'Contempt' are nods to the past, and the aren't afraid to experiment a little either, as the impressive 'Blood Song' offers more than a nod to Corrosion Of Conformity's 'Blind' album.
In short, this just kicks Nu-Metal into a cocked hat. So if you think metal began when Jonathan Davis first whined to the world about his daddy beating on him, do yourself a favour. Get educated. Get this album.
Undeservedly so! From the opening bars of Eyemaster to the final expletive of Out of Hand this is a fantastic slab of thrash mayhem, and while it might not be the most original piece of work ever, it deserves more recognition. Personal favourites are Rotten Soil and the title track but really it's all great and is a must buy if you're into the whole Sepultura, Pantera, Machine Head sort of sound - one of the ten best metal albums ever...

Don't get me wrong, this is a great CD, but was a disappointment after the amazing Clandestine. It took until 2001 for Entombed to make another perfect CD with Morning Star. Read morePublished on 15 Mar. 2006 by J. Halstead
