Old school Death Metal from Spain, and I mean REAL, Stockholm-style Death Metal, in the vein of old masters Entombed, Dismember, Grave and the likes. That's what Morbid Flesh, a band rising from the ashes of Undertaker, is about. They loyally follow the traditions of old school Swedish Death Metal and add small doses of L.A.'s Sadistic Intent and Britain's war masters Bolt Thrower.
Embedded in the Ossuary is the Spaniards' second full-length studio release and is a couple of steps up from their 2011 debut, Reborn in Death. This stuff is dark, immensely heavy and uncompromising Death Metal to the bone, made a little less impressive because the band's recipe is so clearly adopted from very familiar things. Who among us, though, doesn't love this style of Death Metal, in which you can hear tasty bits and pieces from your favorite bands of 20-25 years ago? The Morbid Flesh camp has succeeded in throwing their sound back in time on Embedded in the Ossuary and it's really hard to say "no thank you" if you are a sucker for this type of stuff. They sound pretty darn awesome, I can tell you.
In short, you cannot go wrong with Embedded in the Ossuary, especially if the early Swedish style of Death Metal is something that lights your fire. Embedded in the Ossuary is a seductive summons to all old school Death Metal fans. Can you hear the call, too?
