Review Type: 

The band's fourth full length  release, The Fleshland, is a pretty brutal slab of

sludge/death metal that could find quite a bit of appeal worldwide with a little exposure. The incredible raw production manages to capture the spirit of the eighties whilst the music heads for Autopsy/Venom/Hellhammer/Asphyx revisited vibe by way of primitive death metal tendencies. The music features crashing drums, nothing too complex, but effective nevertheless, and crushing, groove-laden guitars. The sporadic changes in tempo, from monolithic, bludgeoning Winter-sections to faster, equally relentless Autopsy- ish passages make for an aggressive and chaotically kamikaze sound.

The Fleshland, though no classic, is one of those albums that needs to be in your collection.
