Volturyon- Coordinated Mutilation
United Guttural 2011
I'm going to skip commenting on the album cover by Polish artist Lukasz Jaszak. It is what it is.
With that said this sophomore release from Swedish death metal act Volturyn is really good. Recorded at Black Lounge and Abyss studios by Jonas Kjellgren ( Scar Symmetry, Centinex, World Below) Coordinated Mutilation reminded me of the works of Entombed and At The Gates. Merging technical death metal with thrash the band slash their way through these ten tracks with a maturity befitting a more experienced and mature act. Sweden continues to amaze me with the quantity and quality of death acts they have. Easily some of the best death metal I've heard so far in 2011.
