STRANGULATION
STRANGULATION
Carnage In Heaven
(self-financed)
7:27min

Wow, what a fantastic demo! The three songs featured here contain finest brutal Death Metal from Sweden comparable to older CANNIBAL CORPSE (especially the session vocals done by Dennis of SPAWN OF POSSESSION / VISCERAL BLEEDING remind me of Chris Barnes) or DEICIDE, but STRANGULATION are definitely no copy, because they add their own straightness and also a slight old school feeling to it. This is underlined by the layout of the CD inlay too, which arouses associations with the classic Swedish Death Metal acts GRAVE or NIHILIST, because their first demos were also in this black & white style, very cool!!! What is also great about this demo CD, is that STRANGULATION do not make attempts at being extremely technical or innovative, but concentrate on a direct impact and a powerful drive. The production is also very good and makes "Carnage In Heaven" sound authentic, energetic and nicely raw. If you are into Death Metal, no matter if you prefer the old school style or brutal Death, you gonna love this awesome demo, because it is somewhere in the middle. It is absolutely done with heart and I can only hope that the STRANGULATION guys get the chance to release a full-length CD... fucking great!!! Now get your last few bucks together and send 4 US Dollars, 4 Euro or 30 SEK to the address below! Helttunen, Riksbyggevägen 12 B, 69144 Karlskoga, Sweden.
