DEATH METAL FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE
Gather for the necromancy of two of Sweden's best death metal bands.
Since forming in the infernal year of 2007, Swedish death metallers Miasmal have gone from promising upstarts—the group’s self-titled debut made evil underground waves in 2011—to innovative veterans. The Gothenburgers 2016 album, Tides of Omniscience, isn’t just transformative, it’s proof positive that in the confines of death metal there’s plenty of room for forward progress without uprooting what the forefathers had in mind.
Formed in Atviaberg, Sweden in 2006, Maim aimed to recreate the raw feel and sound of such legendary forebears as Grave, Death and Autopsy. Those familiar with their previous releases (From the Womb to the Tomb, Deceased to Exist and EP No Posers Please) will agree that they have done a fine job, creating a short back catalogue that stands up well in such company and which has helped the band develop a loyal and devoted fan base. Following several line-up changes and a small hiatus, the band have slimmed down to a two-piece with original members Christian Sandberg on guitar and vocal duties and Henric Ottoson on drums. Ornaments of Severity represents the band’s third full length record and their first since 2011’s EP. Ornaments picks up where their previous releases left off, delivering eleven tracks of classic catchy death metal. - moshville.co.uk
