Grave-Burial Ground

Regain Records 2010

Formed in 1986 under the name of Corpse before changing their name to Grave in 1988 these Swedish death metal legends have been going strong for well over 20 years. Often over shadowed by the their peers Entombed and Dismember (which is really a shame) Grave return with one ugly slab of death metal glory. Ola Lindgren and company have crafted an album full of down tuned, hate filled goodness. While Burial Ground does have it's thrash tinged headbanging moments for the most part this is death sludge. It's raw and primitive bringing back an old school feeling. The production does sound like it was recorded in a dank sewer by C.H.U.D.S but that's the way death metal should be. It's dark,evil and bleak. The songs are longer and there are some different moments for Grave but it works. Not quite the masterpiece of Into the Grave or You'll Never See... ( both are must own if your a death metal purist) Burial Ground still shows today's kids the true face of death metal. Like a walking corpse back for another bite Grave returns more hungry than ever. Let the feast begin gentlemen.
