" 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 ?
