Back to Scandinavia the next entry on the list. Looking at that album cover, you’re probably guessing that this is a death metal band. And you’d be correct. However, these guys kind of play out more like a doom metal band than a traditional sounding death metal outfit. The riffs on this one bring to mind more of something you’d hear off a Trouble album than your typical Scandinavian death metal band. Chuggy and slow moving with a severe guttural sounding vocalist.
