Er­lands­son back with the skills to power

Rhythm - - CONTENTS -

The Swedish melodic death met­allers are now on their 10th al­bum in a 20-year ca­reer, the sec­ond to add Alyssa White-Gluz’s spine-shat­ter­ing scream to the mix of melodic riff­ing, and dou­ble-kick blast-beat fury cour­tesy of drum main­stay Daniel Er­lands­son. He’s on fire here, pow­er­ing the mighty ‘The Race’, chug­ging ‘Mur­der Scene’ and melodic stand-out ‘In The Water’. In Er­lands­son’s own words (see Wel­come Back on page 13 this is­sue), his is a more stripped back ap­proach this time to al­low the songs to breathe and let their more com­plex, prog-lean­ings to come to the fore, which they do on the grandiose ‘Dreams Of Ret­ri­bu­tion’ and soar­ing al­bum closer ‘A Fight I Must Win’.
