“Skeleton Key”
(Underworld Records)
Having been familiar with one of bands from which Excommunicated has sprung, Catholicon, I’m kinda expecting a continuation of that crazed death metal sound that band had. Reality is that this is something completely different. The sound is more controlled death metal like the Florida sound. Think Malevolent Creation more than Hate Eternal and you got a pretty good idea of where Excommunicated are coming from. Add some thrash metal influences and Excommunicated starts to look like a pretty good extreme metal band for everybody with a taste for the off-mainstream. For some strange reason I get a British feel to the music. Like f.x. had Anihilated gone death metal by way of Florida. Any which way, I like “Skeleton Key” in all its glory. Anders Ekdahl
