Sucker for Scandinavian-styled death metal that I am, I really enjoyed 2016’s Following the Ancient Path, so when I saw this new slab of filth appear I knew I had to give it a listen.
Grave, Entombed, Dismember; the usual influences apply here. Order of Death’s old-school death metal is faithful to its source material, and Eteritus have produced a solid album.
With plenty of deep growls, macabre melodies, and heavy riffs, this is rancid and reeking death metal that will be instantly familiar to anyone who has a passing familiarity with the style. Eteritus do the right thing by taking a song-based approach to their music, and Order of Death’s eight tracks are each quite pleasing in their delivery.
If you’re not really enamoured with this type of thing then I very much doubt you’ll find anything here to convince you otherwise, but if you’re partial to Swedish death metal then Order of Death hits the spot quite nicely.
Eteritus have produced 33 minutes of simple, rotten death metal. It does exactly what it says on the tin, and does it well.
