Rated 4.25/5 (85%) (4 Votes)

I didn't realize this was yet another Rogga Johansson joint when I first heard it, which makes the case that this is one of his good ones. Johansson is a one-man Death Metal machine, being a part of 30+ active bands (Paganizer, Megascavenger, Ribspreader, etc etc) plus many more he has lent his talents to over the years. I don't know when the guy sleeps. Revolting has been one of his long-running acts, with seven albums going back a dozen years.

If you know Rogga's work, or Swedish Death Metal in general, then you know what this sounds like, but of Johansson's innumerable albums (bands he is a member of have put out a total of nine full-length albums this year alone) this is one of the better ones. The production is heavy and crunchy, the songwriting actually has some hooks to go with the heaviness, and the album overall has a real mood and feel and doesn't come across as half-assed. This is right smack dab in the middle of the Swedish Death Metal landscape, but it's a solid disc.
