CD Reviews

Very enjoyable old school death metal
Eric D. Musall | Indianapolis, IN USA | 02/09/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Comecon was a fairly minor band in the old Swedish scene, and if they were only semi-visible then, they've become invisible now. This is their best album, a borderline-classic with good songwriting, excellent production (which is a little cleaner than the standard for Sunlight), and enough unique and interesting touches to get your attention. Musically it's a midway point between classic Swedish death like Entombed or Dismember, and the early death/thrash of Pestilence (whose singer Martin Van Drunen is also the singer on this album - taking the place of LG Petrov). Tempos are generally mid or fast, no blast beats. Van Drunen's vocals are similar to what he did on Pestilence's "Consuming Impulse" - mid-pitched and hoarse.

The first Comecon album (Megatrends in Brutality) is also worth checking out, especially if you're an Entombed fan. But this is their high-water mark."
