CD review ENTRAILS "Resurrection from the grave"

Veröffentlicht am 29. Juli 2014 von Markus W. in Entrails, Grave, Entombed, Death Metal, CD Review, News, Dismember

(8/10) The history of Entrails can be divided into two phases. In the 90's, the peak of Swedish death metal, the band from Linneryd, Sweden started with passion and dedication. But all the work didn't really lead to countable successes with the result that Entrails disbanded in 1998.

It took the band another 10 years to re-unit. This was mainly based on Jimmy Lundqvist. Demos have been recorded and the debut album "Tales from the morgue" came out in 2010. In the meantime Entrails has released three records and start to really get attention in the death metal scene. Listening to Entrails immediately awakes the thought about Entombed, Dismember and Grave.

With 'newest' release the band goes back again into the demo times. It was Lundqvist's idea to remove dust from old treasures of the band. "Resurrection from the grave" couldn't have been better chosen as a title for this exercise. It's both demos ("Reborn" and "Human decay") which found a new way into the spotlight. The result is a 16 songs + 2 intros long album. Songs from the past, which are partly also presented on the full-length albums, provide you with great death metal. The pleasure with this release is the puristic approach which Lundqvist had when re-recording/re-arranging the tunes. The album has an excellent sound, but you can hear that most of the songs have been written already in the 90's. You could say it's old stuff which benefits from new recording standards.

"Resurrection from the grave" is a great death metal release of a band that finally gets the attention deserved. For all fans of Swedish death metal a 'must'.
