GRAVE (Swe): “Into the Grave” Cd 1991 Century Media

GRAVE (Swe):

No this time this is not a demo, and I also know
I have promised not to make reviews until the zine4
is out, but… I couldn’t really resist reviewing
this. I have heard some kids in town proclaiming
they like Swedish Death metal and when asked which
bends they preferred they say IN FLAMES and DARK
TRANQUILLITY. Ugh, what a fist in my oversized belly.

Well for those who like real Death Metal this album
should be the bible. My absolute favorite SDM album
aside with CARNAGE’s “Dark Recollections”
and DISMEMBER’s “Pieces” Ep, this album
is all but no-nonsense straight in your face BRUTAL-as-fuck
Death. Don’t listen to ppl suggesting you ENTOMBED’s
LEft Hand Path, becouse THIS is the ultimate in
violence among the legendary bands of ending eighties/beginning
nineties. Into the Grave is definitely GRAVE’s swangsong,
it is structurally perfect, and with a sound that
is exactly that of bones being crushed, the personal
trademark of the fabled Swedish sound taken to the
excess. Despite many of the bands back then used
to be raspy in their vocals, GRAVE had this particular
ultra-guttural approach, with massive, big sound
saturated with basses and a bit of evocative kb
in the title track (really genius stuff). Main this
that can be said about GRAVE to distinguish them
from the aforementioned and the likes of UNLEASHED,
HETSHEADS, NIHILIST a.s.o. is their sober, chunky
sound. Listening to this album really makes me clenching
the theet and close my fists, it really seeps HATE
from evey single riff. I am not going to discuss
much more, this is a classic beyond words. If you
don’t have it in your collection, you’re a cunt.
