Swedish melodic Death Metallers Preach formed in 2006 and after putting out a handful smaller releases it was the right time for this Swedish quintet to enter the studio in 2013 to record a full-length album. Gasoline Veins was recorded between 2013 and 2014. It’s been said that wine gets better with age and that adage applies quite well to this album, too.
In many ways it can be said Preach offers your typical Swedish-quality Death Metal, which is hook-filled, melodic and well executed from start to finish. Gasoline Veins is full of your typical meat and potatoes melodic Swedish Death Metal and it’s a thoroughly enjoyable listen.
Comparisons to give you a better idea of Preach’s sound would be Carnal Forge, At The Gates, Miscreant, Sacrilege and such. Preach definitely sound "Swedenized" and, in this case, that applies to the execution of their songs as well, with the conviction and musical talent that the Swedes have become known for over the decades.
On Gasoline Veins Preach don’t offer anything we haven’t heard before but, then again, do we even want them to break this melodic and well-made Swedish Death Metal mold? Most of us probably don’t and I for one am pleased with the melodic, quality Swedish Death Metal on this record.
