Dödens födsel

Rated 4/5 (80%) (3 Votes)

This band has been around since 2015, but this is the first full-length album, following an EP and a demo. Death metal is the name of the game here, but this is not the expected old-school Swedish death metal, but rather a crusty take on the genre with some grindcore to keep things vicious. I don't think these guys know what "slow" mean and probably floor it whenever they come to a yellow light as Dödens födsel is all about speed, maybe to a fault. I enjoy the heck out of this while it's on; it's savage, noisy, the vocals are a little cavernous and add a very angry and even demoniac vibe to the music, but ultimately I can't really tell one song apart from the other, and it's such a barrage of speedy noise that I can't really remember anything once it's over. They've got something good going here, but varying things a little bit would go a long way. Mind you, that hasn't prevented me from listening to the album maybe 30+ times so far. Let's face it, sometimes you need a little dose of aural chaos, and this is it.
