GRAND EXIT “The Dead Justifies The Means”

GRAND EXIT
“The Dead Justifies The Means”
(Lifeforce)
Yet another Swedish band that is supposed to play a bit to the side of the mainstream. After all the retro bands that has come from Sweden with the likes of Witchcraft and Graveyard and what not every label seem to be on the lookout for the next big Swedish thing. GRAND EXIT are not a retro rock band. This is death metal for lack of a better description. I have a hard time hearing how this lot should be different from all other death metal acts out there today. They don’t do anything that hasn’t already been done at least once. But what they do they do well. It is not hard to like this album. You just gotta listen to it once before you are hooked. The way that they mix death with black with any other sort of metal is what makes this album stand out a bit. Listening to this I sort of get the same vibe I got the first time I heard At The Gates masterpiece “Slaughter Of The Souls”. This has a bit to go before it reaches that level but the vibe is there.
