I can’t go too long without scurrying back to Sweden, and for good reason.
I’m not sure how this one escaped my attention for so long because it, is, fucking, killer. The melodic death metal sound was just starting to bubble up but before that Sweden had already contributed vastly to death metal. It’s no wonder there are so many homage bands paying respect to the early 90′s, no classic, Swedish death metal sound. Gorement, while exhibiting some of the melodic traits that would soon take over Sweden, fall more into the first category. More along the lines of Dismember but with some gothic sensibilities. Regardless, this album is damn near perfect and a should be held up as an example of classic Swedish death metal. I’m wondering why that doesn’t happen? Put this fucking album on. Now.
