Review


"Sounds like a thousand fucking deaths"...this is how this Gothenburg-based Swedish act Karnarium advertised themselves 4 years ago upon releasing their self-titled debut album. On the follow-up, Otapamo Pralaja, Karnarium keep on lopping heads from shoulders with their relentless, vicious and deranged sound.

Having already enjoyed band's debut I can say that Otapamo Pralaja furthers Karnarium's ultimate goal of making us suffer, but in a pleasant way. It is their most grind-infested and yet most diverse release by far. Most of the time Karnarium offer fast, all-mangling rides on Otapamo Pralaja but there are also songs like "Per Me Reges Regnant" and "Yoga of Tamas (After the Seduction)" on which this ferocious Swedish mob showcase a more experimental side, proving that they are not only about death, decay and grind.

In my opinion, Karnarium are at their best on those "full-speed-ahead" songs, belching fire from all cylinders. They have found their own angry "Terrorizer" sound and spirit and mutated it into something that is strictly theirs. My hat is off to the Karnarium guys for this achievement.
