Fucking riff city here. Just fucking riffs for days. That’s what’s going on with Eructation, an extremely short lived early 90’s Swedish band. Only putting out one demo in 1992, make another lost demo and ill fated EP, they existed only as that until a 2016 compilation saw the release of all their material. And it’s a fucking riff factory. Did I mention that?
Early 90’s Swedish metal is that of legend nowadays. Take a look at the excellent book “Swedish Death Metal” by Daniel Ekeroth and you’ll find an expansive collection of all Swedish metal bands to release music in the 80’s and 90’s and you’ll be sure to find Eructation hidden amongst the other overlooked gems of this period of Swedish metal.
This predates the Gothenburg sound and is more classic death metal, though it does get melodic here and there, and if we want to get technical it’s got that German thrash nastiness to it and some technicality to boot but the main feature here is just the endless amounts of killer, catchy, riffs.
That’s really all there is too it. Fucking amazing riff driven death/thrash. Bang your fucking head to this.
