In Battle - Welcome To The Battlefield
This was a unexpected album that I received with a trade of another album and like a week or two before I received this album passed before my eyes and was sold, used at a Facbook group and I missed it with minutes.
So it was a nice surprise that I got this great, Swedish death metal album on vinyl. The band members are later on more or less known from other Swedish bands, like the drummer Nils “Dominator” Fjellström who play the drums in the black metal band Dark Funeral since 2011 and used to play in bands like Odhinn, Aeon, Netherbird, Sanctification and more.
The fact that this release is limited to 666 copies world wide and that I have one of them makes it cool, but the actual product may be a bit simple and “cheap”. More money should have been spent on the product. But there is nothing wrong with the music, simply its death metal, in the American sounding way.
