This is the fourth album by Fleshmould, an up-and-coming Death Metal band from Belgium. They've been slogging around in the scene for over a decade, and I haven't heard any of their earlier releases, but this is pretty killer. Very much in the vein of the faster breeds of Swedish death like Fleshcrawl or Dismember, Fleshmould rip out a solid disc.
It's always good when a Death Metal band remembers to write actual riffs. Too many bands these days go for speed above all else, letting the choppy rhythms and clickety drums carry the momentum, but not Fleshmould. This band remembers that this is supposed to be about riffs, and they have a nicely old-school approach. This is described as 'technical', and when they speed up they are a bit that, but mostly this is slower or mid-paced with riff-built songs and heavy crushing rhythms. I wouldn't mind if they played faster more often, because they sound good when they do.
Overall this is a solidly enjoyable DM album. It could use a bit more identity, and could be faster, but if you like Swedish-styled death, this will hit that spot.
