Entrails are a band from Sweden that has been featured before in this zine and plays an old school style of early 90's Swedish death metal and this is a review of their 2014 demo compilation "Resurrected From The Grave" which will be released in July by Metal Blade Records.
An intro with thunder and church bell noises start off the album and a few seconds later horror movie soundtrack style synths are added in and a couple of minutes you can hear some demonic sounding vocals which leads up to a 90's style Swedish death metal sound which utilizes both screams and growls.
You can hear a decent amount of slow, mid paced and fast parts throughout along with a great amount of riffing that utilizes melody and the guitar solos are very raw and melodic old school death metal guitar solos and leads and there are also times the music gets very brutal and adds in some blast beats and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound on the demo recordings and as the album progresses there are a few epic tracks with one of them being heavily influenced by doom metal along with a small amount of clean playing being utilized at times and one of the later tracks has a brief use of melodic clean singing female vocals.
The second demo on the compilation starts off with some depressing sounding synths along with a small amount of spoken word parts before going into a heavier direction and the musical direction of the second demo goes for the same musical direction as the first one but also has a more raw and dirty approach to old school death metal and the growls and screams also have a more dark presence to them this time around and the synths also make a brief return on one of the later tracks.
On both of the demo's that are on the compilation Entrails stick to the early 90's style of Swedish death metal that they expanded on up on later recordings, the production sounds very dark, raw and heavy while the lyrics cover suffering, doom, the undead, and occult themes.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding double album from Entrails and if you are a fan of this band, you should check out this compilation. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Evil Obsession" "Depression" "Evil Terror" and "Casket Garden". 8 out of 10.
