The Tower of the Morbid

Rated 3.83/5 (76.67%) (6 Votes)

These Swedish death metallers have quite the discography since forming in 1998, though most of it is made of splits and EPs. The Tower of the Morbid is a nice slab of old-school Swedish death metal that doesn't break any new ground; in fact, you could say it's pretty safe and very much in the mould of what the band has been doing all this time. But that doesn't prevent it from being quite entertaining, which is ultimately what matters. The music is pretty fast-paced overall, heavy when it needs to be but somewhat lighter here and there where things get catchier and more memorable. The vocals are good growls that aren't especially decipherable, but somehow the vocalist manages to make this sound like something "hummable". I wish some parts packed more punch as I feel they could have a lot more impact, but that's kind of nitpicking. This is one of those albums that I don't mind playing over and over.
