Carnage : "Dark Recollections"
Masked Jackal | Ft. Lauderdale, FL United States | 02/19/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is brutal and beyond....Carnage are truly one of the most impressive Death Metal bands I've ever heard. I'm very into bands like Death / Entombed / At The Gates / Kreator / Massacre / Obituary / In Flames {old}/ and Carcass. I must say that this release "Dark Recollections" goes beyond anything theses bands have to offer as far as brutality is concerned.....They sound like Entombed, and "Dark Recollections" is very similar to their classic release "Left Hand Path" IMO. It's a very, very nice piece of work. I think it's safe to say that this release is one, if not the most impressive piece of Death Metal ever. It's that good....Carnage only lasted a very short time, and this is their only available release. The former memebers of Carnage also went on to form and join other bands likes of Dismember/Carcass/and Entombed. That should give you a very good idea of what to expect here. It's a mixure of all three of those bands in one, and let me tell you, it's incredible to say the least. The vocals are straight from hell, and the musicianship is very good. I wish these guys would have stayed together longer. They would undoubtably be considered one of the best Death Metal bands ever IMO.....This is pure brutality, and if you've never heard Carnage, you're in for a real treat. This is easily worth five stars IMO, and nothing I've heard comes close to this in comparison....CARNAGE RULES!!!!!"
Where it all started
Pablosa | Buenos Aires, Capital Federal Argentina | 10/10/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Carnage today would be somekind of superband. Featuring Michael Amott(later in Carcass, Arch Enemy and Spiritual Beggars), Matti Karki, David Blomqvist, Fred Estby(now in Dismember) and Johnny Djordevic(later in Entombed). "Dark Recollections" has something from each band.

Imagine Entombed, Dismember and Carcass together, but with a crappy sound. The album was recorded at the beginning of the 90's, where everything was starting and then would become one of the greatest death metal scenes. So, the production (or lack of) it's understandable. Besides that, is a good album. 100% raw death metal (growls, fast guitars and drums, and grotesque lyrics and environment) and all these guys playing together. What else can you ask for?

Anyway, an album with a great symbolical value. Where it all began. Listen to the Swedish pioneers!

"This album is along the same lines as old MASSACRE, or old CANNIBAL CORPSE when they used to be good. Just good solid death metal. The riffs are simple, but technical at the same time. If you are looking for some good "Old School" death metal this is a must have."
