Entrails: The tomb awaits
28/12/11 || cadenz
Old-timers and recent comebackers Entrails are here with their second full-length album, and if you expect more early-1990’s Stockholmian Swedeath, you are right on. “The Tomb Awaits” is a nice platter with groovy, meaty and semi-catchy death metal in the old Swedish Entombed/Dismember/Grave school, but it’s starting to sound a little dated. All of these riffs were done twenty years ago, and most of them better. The growls, musicianship and production are all top notch (except the out-of-tune acoustic guitar on the intro track), but I can’t shake the feeling that I was hoping for something more. Not just more of the same. Even though it’s kinda rad.
7/10: A surrogate for those rare times when “Clandestine”, “Like an Everflowing Stream” and “Soulless” don’t satisfy you enough.
After going thru that crap, you most likely wanna read something way more interesting. You do, admit it.
