Entombed's Most Accessable For New Fans
Mono-Grind | Here | 04/14/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This, i believe, is more Hard Rock/Heavy Metal, rather than Death Metal. The whole album, and especially the fantastic opener "To Ride, Shoot Straight And Speak The Truth"..is just a great big ball of energy. The riffs are bouncy, and energetic, and overall it's a pretty fun, rocking, album. I don't know how anyone could be disappointed in it.

I think this is probably the album everyone new to Entombed should try out first. This is easily their most accessable, with songs like the aforementioned "To Ride, Shoot Straight And Speak The Truth", "Like This With The Devil", "Lights Out", "They", the awesome "Damn Deal Done" and "Wreckage". Which i think "Wreckage" was the single for this album, but i'm not entirely sure.

This whole album is very listenable. It changes tempo alot of the time, with fast songs like "Parasight", "Just As Sad" and "Uffe's Horrorshow". The other songs i haven't mentioned are mostly Hard Rock, with a bit of Swedish Thrash Metal mixed in with it. It pays off most of the time, but there are some 'filler' songs on this CD. Such as "Wound", "Put Me Out" and "Boats" i think.

The song "DcIXVI" is a 1:46 minute song that could easily be on some sort of movie. It's a short piano song, that surprisingly fits with the mood of the album. In a way it could be looked at as a 'filler' song, but it's not bad to listen to. It adds a sort of mini-break in the middle of the album, before "Parasight" comes on and pummels you with it's groovy, fast, riffs and faster drumming.

Above all..if you're into Entombed, no doubt you'd already have this by now. If you haven't, you should pick it up immediately, as it's a great buy and a great addition to your collection. And to fans who want to check Entombed out, this is the best way to start, i think."

"If there is one thing that I will agree with, is that Entombed is nothing like the Entombed of old, yet I still kinda like the new style. To say its Death Metal is kinda reaching, yet its still Heavy Metal. But its more just straight up Metal then anything else. Its not really anything special or that stands out, but they are some good cruncy riffs and some good screaming, yet its not done Nu Metal style which is GOOD. Give it a chance as it might grow on you. Why emtombed decided to stop performing Pure Death Metal is beyond me, but since the release of "Wolverine Blues" (which in my opinion is their worst album)they have moved farther away from their Death Metal roots, and I believe they call thier new style Death Rock and Roll. Its not a Great effort, but there are some really good songs on this album, and I will take it over most of the New Rock and Metal of today."
Excellent!

"Amazing record i just dug out of the crates and am currently rediscovering. I'm not really that well versed in death metal and don't even own Entombed's two first records. But as many reviewers before me have pointed out the genuine death metal-schtick is not really present on this record or the previous Wolverine Blues. For me, the greatest thing about Wolverine Blues and this record is the production. The thick, bludgeoing riffs and the excellent drumming is killer. Nicke Andersson clearly commands the songwriting on this record, and in retrospect it should have come as no suprise that he left Entombed to concentrate on the more straight rock n' roll-oriented band Hellacopters. The greatest tune, among a lot of great ones (To Ride, Shoot straight..., Like this with the devil, Damn deal done etc.) is, for my money, Wreckage. It's a screaming loud, feedback-drenched monster of a song. To me, portions of it echoes a bit of Sonic's Rendezvous Band's mighty City Slang (especially the coda where Hellid and Cederlund before my inner eye raise their guitars in a classic Fred "Sonic" Smith-like pose), albeit much heavier and complemented with Petrov's beautiful howling. There are some filler song, but as an album this holds together brilliantly. In spirit I find it reminds me of MC5's Kick out the jams, although in a more extreme, metal way. There is a certain delicious sloppiness that gives this record a unique charm. If you like loud guitars, loud vocals, loud bass, loud drums and loud feedback, this is for you."
