Creeping Flesh – …And Then the Bombs Came (Review)

Creeping Flesh - ...And Then the Bombs CameThis is the second album from Swedish death metallers Creeping Flesh.

Creeping Flesh play old-school death metal that feels like it’s underpinned and powered by the classic Swedish style, but has an obvious love of Bolt Thrower that they then build on top of these sturdy foundations. The end result throws bands such as Hail Continue reading “Creeping Flesh – …And Then the Bombs Came (Review)”

Creeping Flesh – In Times of War (Review)

Creeping FleshCreeping Flesh are a Swedish death metal band and this is a compilation album of their previous work.

This collection contains 2014’s Unravelled by War, 2015’s Rising Terror, and 2016’s Scorched. I don’t normally review compilation releases like this, especially if I’ve covered some of the music previously, but I wanted to highlight In Times of War as I like Creeping Flesh a lot.

This is only Continue reading “Creeping Flesh – In Times of War (Review)”

Creeping Flesh – Scorched (Review)

Creeping FleshThis is the latest demo from Swedish death metallers Creeping Flesh.

I like Creeping Flesh a lot. Their 2015 EP Rising Terror was a firmly enjoyable slab of the Swedish style of death metal, and it stuck out in my mind as a superior release from the genre. Continue reading “Creeping Flesh – Scorched (Review)”

Creeping Flesh – Rising Terror (Review)

Creeping FleshCreeping Flesh are from Sweden and play Death Metal. That’s right, it’s Swedish Death Metal time again! This is their latest EP.

Well, you just can’t keep a good sub-genre down, despite what some may wish. I have a bit of a fondness for this particular style of Death Metal so I was looking forward to checking this out.

War Metal. Swedish Death Metal. Old-School Death Metal. Whichever way you cut it, this is this stuff, right here.

Straight away the chainsaws are revved and the macabre melodies are introduced. Creeping Flesh waste no time in making their intentions known.

Heavy riffs are dropped like bombs and a deep growling bellowing is unleashed on an unsuspecting populace. Like all Swedish Death Metallers, Creeping Flesh recognise a good marching groove when they get themselves into one.

This EP boasts a strong recording and everything sounds crushing. More importantly, the band show themselves to have some good songwriting skills and the 5 tracks on Rising Terror hit the spot.

Dark melodies, chugging riffs and decent leads/solos mean this is a very satisfying way to spend 23 minutes and a very solid lump of Swedish Death Metal.

Highly recommended.
