Yeah, yeah, you'll probably blame me for being an old twat who doesn't like progress and what not, but you know what? I know that's not true and I'm entitled to completely and utterly revel in death metal the way Entombed did it twenty years ago when someone once in a while comes around and kicks out and album which sounds a bit like the ancient gold.

And that's exactly what Spanish Graveyard has done with 'The Altar of Sculpted Skulls'!

Perhaps not the tightest affair, but fuck it, it has a lot of atmosphere and a heavy as shit crush. It has the mighty Swedish guitar sound of yonder years and a fine approach to putting together songs.

Excellent EP - hopefully just an appetizer for more old school death metal!
