" Desultory were always underrated in my book.....Seemingly always compared to Entombed,Dismember....They never sounded like the two aforementioned legends and sorta had their own thing going. Thought of as a second tier band by many....They had a decent career up until a change in musical direction derailed the once mighty Swedish band "
" Skip forward from 1994s 'Bitterness'(The last of the old style records) and we have arrived at a new record a new attitude and a new record deal with Pulverised records. When bands reform and make a come back I always assume a bit of a letdown.....This is NOT the case here ! A new found energy and 9 new tracks are refueling Desultory back into the spotlight "
" Right off the bat you get god damn catchy riffing and tompa style vocals...All set up by a heavy yet clear production. This Lp reminds me of Evocation's 2008 masterpiece 'Dead Calm Chaos' a amalgam of really grinding yet catchy(I know I said it twice already)tracks with just that right amount of melodic touches to keep it sounding fresh. There is not a dud to be found across the 9 lessons in Swedish mastery..All having a hook and groove done in the Swedish way "
" This was sent by a loyal follower and we thank him very much for this !.......Now go out and order this disc and enjoy one of the better rides of the year in my opinion...Please buy CDs and support the underground....I know this gets old hearing this...But it is imperative that we keep buying Cds and digital downloads to keep the artists and record companies alive to put out such great artistry as this...Rant over...Now Get It! "
By the way: Finally have computer problems fixed (Well if you can imagine a pc being thrown out of a truck going 70 mph down a hill being fixed) I finally stepped up to a IMAC and am enjoying the fruits of a perfect setup....Maybe I will post more than once a month from now on?????
Excellent Album !.......Buy It!
