Interment - Into The Crypts Of Blasphemy CD
Beyond doubt, Into the Crypts of Blasphemy is a choice cut for all old school death metal fans. Humble and heavy sums it up on the surface, but closer examination of this beast of an album's innards reveals a band with a great deal of passion for the music and a lifetime of devotion to their origins. It's stuff like this that makes me proud to call myself a metalhead; this album testifies for metal as being an inextinguishable, eternal flame. The lyrical references to bands such as Entombed, Dismember, Slayer, and Celtic Frost, the utter lack of filler, the punchy, unrestrained production values, and the honest-to-the-music cover art all validate this testimonial and indeed confirm the album as the truest of the true, for the truest of the true, quite the contrary to what the senseless detractors of the old school death metal revival would have you believe. This is no imitation, for Into the Crypts of Blasphemy, and Interment as a band, are certainly worthy of being counted among the greats of Swedish death metal.
