Comecon - Converging Conspiracies LP (Orange vinyl)
If these touches were removed completely, we'd still be left with an album's worth of punishing Swedish death metal worth listen to if only because of the quality of the riff craftsmanship and the relentless aggression, aided in no small way by Van Drunen's inspired vocal performance. With these idiosyncrasies, we've got something that's leagues beyond simply "above average" death metal. We've instead got something that deserves "classic" status as much as the Demiliches of the world. If you're a fan of the old school Stockholm sound or death metal that brings something unique to the table, this album is absolutely worth your time.
