CREEPING FLESH “Into The Meat Grinder”

Trends come and trends go. The only thing that remains is true conviction. Playing death metal and coming from Gothenburg is nothing to write home about. Or is it? Some of the worlds greatest metal has come from the west coast town of Gothenburg. To be a metal band from said town raises the expectation from me even before I have had a chance to listen to this. the fact that this is a death metal band raises the expectations even further. In my book this can only go one way or the other. There is no in between. With these guys having ties to Gothenburg I kinda expected this to be slightly melodic but boy was I wrong. This is really guttural death metal, the kind that creeps deep under your skin like a really good horror movie. I haven’t always been a major fan of this lower tempo stuff. back in the day speed was all and everything but with age (like the last 20 years) I have come to appreciate the heavier stuff. I like the nuances that being heavy creates. It is easier to listen to something that is played at lightning speed because you don’t really have to pay that much attention. With the heavier. Slower stuff you gotta concentrate much more, and my ADD is no friend when it comes to concentration. But this one is too good to haste through like there is no tomorrow. Really cool, heavy death metal. Anders Ekdahl
