LIMITED EDITION ON 180gr VINYL!
Back in the late 90?s when the mighty Florida scene was emerging a band named ?Grotesque? (from the demise of which At the Gates rose) was doing its own brand of extreme metal across the ocean. Imagine ?Altars of Madness? with thrashy riffs, eerie solos and a darker atmosphere. It is a good description of what the album sounds like. This album is a collection of songs from the demos the band had created, thus the style from one song to the other can vary a bit. There is a thick guitar tone that creates this dark atmosphere. The riffs are thrashy for the bigger part; don?t expect something melodic or heartfelt here. This is an album for those days when you want to headbang or scream along. Lindberg's performance is, predictably, top notch, with the lower register of his voice used as a gatling machine gun, spitting out hate and rabid words. This is a solid masterpiece in Swedish death metal and a great headbanger too!
