LIMITED EDITION WITH ETCHED B-SIDE!!!
"Putrid odours rising, From beneath the ground. They climb up from the tombs with a freezing horrid sound... From beyond the grave" This one sentence perfectly sums up the atmosphere of ?Hecatomb?, the legendary EP from the Swedish Repugnant. In fact they resurrected old school death metal with such a quality that often it?s better than the originals! Mind that no one else, except Repugnant even thought about something like this at this time of late 90?s / early 00?s, while nowadays there are dozens of bands, that try to play like this!!
Everything starts with a creepy, horror intro, which is followed by "From Beyond the Grave" - this one song is just a death metal masterpiece! The riffing in it is just excellent, very sharp and aggressive, combining the very old school death and thrash metal traditions of bands like Possessed, Mantas / Death, Master, old Sepultura, Nihilist, etc. In fact this song not only will force you into maniacal headbanging, with the fast and relentless playing, but also will make you scream the catchy chorus part - "from beyond the graaaveee!!!!!!". "Morbid Ways" then strikes with something very similar, but maybe even more in the classic Swedish death metal vein, but man... It's another amazing song, with some truly vicious and devastating riffs. "Day of the human holocaust, in sinners mind, forever lost. Raping the grace, human quiescence. Morbid Ways..."
