is a death metal band from Sweden. But they don’t play Swedish
death; they play brutal American or Floridian death metal. The first
band that popped in my head that they reminded me of was Monstrosity.
You can also hear other influences like Cannibal Corpse and maybe
a little Deicide too. Some parts are reminiscent of Withered Earth
and Incantation as well. A few parts seemed to be missing something,
but for the most part they are vibrant and brutal. It’s nothing
that hasn’t been done before, but it still has it impressive
moments. There is a little technicality, but mostly straightforward.
“Tempest Of Torment” is brutally simple and to the point.
It’s good to hear a non-Swedish death band for once. It seems
that everyone is taking something from it today. The only thing these
guys have in common with Swedish death metal is that they both came
from Sweden! Mostly brutal riffs are all over the ten tracks, but
there are some speed driven riffs within the thirty-seven minutes.
There are typical brutal death growls that you would expect, and he
does it soundly. However, a few of the transitions between parts of
songs seem a little awkward. It’s not bad, but I noticed it
a few times. Overall this is a worthy metal effort.
