Dead Lovers' Guide
Style: Death Metal
Release date: 1 September, 2010
Playing time: 33:10

I can help smiling when I listen to this album. I'll be blatantly honest: The Swedish band Brutally Deceased is in no a tight band. The drum sound is terrible for the most part and not worthy of today's standards. And you sit there and think 'Is this is a cover band?' It's Entombed, right? No, wait - it's Dismember! No, hang on...Unleashed, no, Grave, erm..'.

It would not be fair to give 'Dead Lover's Guide' a really good rating, it just wouldn't, and I won't.

But when that is said, the smile I told you about, the smile that is on my face right now, it's not a scornful one. No, it's a happy smile, because I can't help loving Brutally Deceased for paying homage to the bands that changed a lot for me and meant shitloads to not only me, but to many, many others.

I can't help getting just a little bit excited by that, yes, THAT guitar sound, the buzzard blade sound that came out of Sweden so many years ago and made kids like myself go 'what the fuck is this?!'

For that I alone I have enjoyed listening to this album a lot, as for the points I started out with...well, just to get to it, boys. Work to be done!
