Imperial Fires

Rated 3.67/5 (73.33%) (3 Votes)

One Day in Pain is a solo project of former Leprosy drummer Nicke Olsson, whose most recent endeavors include playing for Bloodgut and Putrid Vision. Nicke claims the sole purpose of this band is to create old-school Death Metal and that's exactly what can be found on his debut, Imperial Fires. Musically, this is most comparable to old-school bands like early Death and Massacre along with Grave's first two demos. The songs are simple, stripped down, and don't waste time with being technical and instead beat you down with a bombardment of heavy, classic-sounding riffs. There's a remarkable number of guest musicians on this as well, with members of Chainsaw, Wombbath, and Darkane contributing to various tracks, most notably tireless Swedish Death Metal icon Rogga Johansson on vocals going at it as if he were Kam Lee himself. This is pretty much what it says on the tin: Death Metal done like it was 30+ years ago that doesn't pretend to be anything else, and you'd have to be a complete pussy to not want more of it.
