Sometimes reviews are a long time coming for the simple reason that the music sucks, or worse yet, is somewhere in between good and bad, and it's therefore hard to come up with something you can even be bothered reading yourself.

Let me emphasize that
there is no reason for this review's delay other than family, work and all the other trivial stuff that life is filled up with. It should have been written a long time ago and given Demonical the cudos they deserve for putting out a death metal album that is a proverbial kick in the balls.

With 'Death Infernal' Demonical lay down another stone on the path to completely taking over a throne that Entombed stepped down from years ago. Ah, nothing new, then? you ask. No, nothing. And in this case I have to thank the gods for the lack of novelties. This is pure and unadulterated Swedish death metal anno 1990 handed to us with conviction and power.

Is there room for one little surprise this time? Yes, one; March For Victory sounds like a nod to fellow Swedes Amon Amarth - or is this just Demonical showing Johan and the boys that they can pull off this kind of stuff as well if they wanted to?

Killer album!
