Origin - Sweden
Style - Death Metal

" Did I go almost 800 posts without putting up one of the most influential and pioneering albums of all time?.....Bad week to quit sniffin glue !....."

" With their monumental debut album, Left Hand Path, Entombed crashed through the gates of the international death metal scene and foreshadowed the pivotal role that Scandinavia would soon play in the evolution of the then-burgeoning genre "

" These Swedes had earlier made ripples throughout the underground with their But Life Goes On demo (1989), which got them signed to Earache. Left Hand Path did more than make ripples upon its 1990 release, however — it came crashing like a tidal wave. Beyond doubt it raised the bar for death metal, significantly challenging American trailblazers like Death, Obituary, and Morbid Angel "

" What Entombed did was take the extremity of Earache's stable of British grindcore bands (Napalm Death, Carcass, etc.) and apply it to the elaborate songwriting structures of the aforementioned American death metal bands. It was the best of both worlds — over-the-top extremity complemented by intricate songwriting — and it wasn't more than a year or two later that everyone and their brother were following Entombed's lead....Thousands upon thousands of like-minded bands from every corner of the planet "

Recorded and mixed at Sunlight Studio, Stockholm, December 1989...By Tomas Skogsberg

Left Hand Path is a monumental accomplishment, not only for Entombed but for death metal in general...And every fan of Death Metal should own this already !.....You do dont you ?

Khizer......Smartly requested this !

" Norway's answer to Cannibal Corpse...Blood Red Throne throw down their 5th full length "

And a loud and clear production on this record "

" The tracks: Mostly mid-tempo crushers....Mixing american death metals finest..C.C., Morbid Angel, Deicide with a scandanavian melodic touch to it all. I would have preferred more brutallity..As it seems this Lp is very safe...Much like the last record 'Come Death'. None the Less..it is still a quality piece of death metal "

Blood Red Throne fans: ...Its a continuation....Of the last Lp
Death Metal Fans : Check it out...It is a strong record
Musicians: Check out one of the great bassist's around Erlend Caspersen...And you can actually hear the bass in many tracks....

Overall?......This album perhaps occupies the fine line of being able to satisfy existing death-heads and still being accessible enough to bring newer fans into the genre.....

Whispers Of Death !........They Get It!

1. A Cold Wind of Sorrow
2. Yog-Sothoth
3. Vomination

Origin - Sweden
Style - Death/Black Metal

" Arising from the ashes of death-thrashers Ravaged. Brutal mix of old school death and black metal with a slight touch of more current style Death Metal, guttural growls and tortured screams "

" Vomination recorded this demo in studio Ubbo-Sathla providing us with a combination of old school brutal death metal and melodic death/black metal. The Guitar riffs are heavy and quite technical changing from massive to melodic and atmospheric. Drums are supporting with double bass parts and dragging rhythyms. Vocals are the brutal growls and hatefilled screams. Sound is obscure which is great for this style. Good demo with nice combination of styles..Ditch the pig squeals.... Tho.."

" Now on to the record.... Attitude combines Thrash, Death and melodies, in a very efficient way. With songs that contain all their previous influences, from Black Metal screams, to 80's Thrashing parts, this album has alot of varying ideas, without sacrificing quality.Excellent arrangements, with equally good musicianship, are the key parts of this album."

" Melodies are also plenty, and are used wisely, without weakening the whole result. The songs are well written, catchy and groovy, with tunes that stick in your mind, A very powerful and clear production completes the album "

A very good album indeed, from a talented band.

There's even a guest spot from Chuck Billy(Testament)

7. False Incarnation

9. Powers of Hate

11. Oracle of Obmission
12. Kill Team [demo]
13. Fight or Die [demo]

Origin - USA
Style - Thrash Metal

" Swallowed in Black" (2nd full length) is biting, raw, technical, full-throttle thrash metal with early death metal leanings "

" Sadus fall somewhere between Slayer and early Death. Some of the songs included on the band' sophomore release are ultra fast. Every time I listen to "Swallowed in Black", or any Sadus for that matter, what makes them stick out from the thrash metal hordes is the vocals of Darren Travis and the insane bass performance of Steve DiGiorgio. The bass guitar is one instrument that is often buried in the mix on many thrash albums. That is certainly not the case here. Each and every note that DiGiorgio plays is heard clearly "

" The rest of the band is equally impressive. The music on "Swallowed in Black" isn't sloppy whatsoever, unlike some other bands whose music is played with such a manic fury. Rather, this band is tight. Fast double bass, insane guitar solos, etc. A few tracks do have a slight death metal influence, although I don't think that Sadus ever quite cross over into death metal territory. Songs like "False Incarrnation" contain some riffs that remind me of early Carcass or even Death.

Adramelech - Psychostasia (1996)

3. Seance of Shamans
4. The Book of the Worm
5. Thoth (Lord of the Holy Words)
6. Mythic Descendant
7. As the Gods Succumbed
8. Across the Gray Waters

Origin - Finland
Style - Death Metal

" Born in 1991, Adramelech released the Grip Of Darkness demo and got a deal with Adipocere Records which lead to the Spring Of Recovery EP in 1993. The band's next move was the The Fall demo which brought them to Repulse Records. Repulse fit the band on one of its compilations and released The Fall as a 3" MCD. The band's first CD proper appeared in 1996. Recorded at Tico Tico studio (Impaled Nazarene, Sentenced, etc.), the album established the band as one of the heavier Finnish bands with Demilich and Demigod "

" So we are talking about Adramelech's debut album from the forgotten era in death metal music, year 1996,and it is one of the rare gems from those times. Adramelech featured a couple of Demigod members..You know it cant be anything but Killer "

" 'Psychostasia' is an album, that is simultaneously demanding and alternating in its small space, but hugely catchy and very solid without any ill-placed element. The band was able to match hooky riffage, interesting turns and aggressiveness of a tank. The band wrote tens or hundreds of brutal, mystical, domineering and headbangable riffs and spiced it all with good lead guitar work. The songs are mainly fast, but there's slower parts as well as atmosphere-dripping ones, too. Hellishly lot of double bass drumming is heard! The lyrics handle ancient mythologies (eg. Vikings', Egyptians' and Greeks'), but the melody lines are nothing like Viking metal or Mesopotamian metal ones, but truly old school death metal "

Lush lanscapes of acoustic folkish guitars leading to crushing riffs ala Early Opeth...Deep growls and the constant shift between complex death metal, harsh black metal, and lovely folk textures propel this record along "

" With digipack artwork by Travis Smith(Opeth,Katatonia)...Everything about this album is very professional. And while the sound is very much Opethian like...You cannot get away from the fact that this Lp is a fantastic piece of art. "

Nostalgia is quite simply a stunning progressive death metal release !.......Now go buy it !
