Echoes of the Apocalypse

Rated 4/5 (80%) (5 Votes)

You know, I don't think I've seen an album title reflect the year it was made better than this one. Echoes of the Apocalypse is the second album from Finnish group Spiritual Holocaust, who unsurprisingly have a kick of that murky Finnish Death Metal sound mixed in with their otherwise Swedish sounding Death Metal. You get the downtuned, buzzsaw riffing, the infamous Sunlight Studio sound, and enough abuse of the Boss HM-2 distortion pedal to remind you of the glory days when bands like Carnage and Entombed ruled the underground. True, this doesn't do anything particularly new or mind-blowing, but it is a solid example of a well-trodden sound that has just enough novelty and brutality to stand out in a scene clogged with mediocre imitators. If you can't get enough of the Swedish sound, this is worth checking out.
