Necrology (Album 2009)
Grade: 7 / 10

Review by Greg Moffitt for Metal Hammer (October 2009)

For the follow-up to their 2006 debut, Unleash, these Swedes have progressed far beyond their unremarkable thrash/death hybrid and even beyond the much more brutal death metal of 2007's interim EP Unholy. Ably mixed and mastered by production legend Dan Swanö, this slaughterfest is a cranium-crushing combination of old-school Swedish DM and its US counterpart as embodied by the likes of Suffocation.

Forget anger management; vocalist Mikael Aronsson sounds like he's been attending anger multipliation classes, his acid-gargling growls the perfect foil for the band's predictable but oh-so-satisfying blend of eviscerating high-speed blasts and meaty, mid-paced breakdowns.
