simultaneously with this review is my blabbering about the new Autopsy album.
I'm not overly positive in that review. And that despite the fact that the
band Nihilist that was to become one of my all-time favourite bands Entombed
were hugely influenced by Autopsy, it doesn't quite do the trick for me.
The same can be said of Swedish Maim. I'm just not a big fan of the
Autopsy/Repulsion school of death metal, even if I can hear that what they do is
just right and according to the code and all that. The sound is just too
underground for me - it was back then, and it still is.
The tracks I like best from 'Deceased to Exist' are the back to back tunes Evil
Smell of Death and Crematory. These two tracks stand out, the first with a slow,
heavy section and the latter with it's atmospheric, yet crude intro.
Recommended for fans of Autopsy, Repulsion and Nihilist.
