Rise of the Reaper

Rated 4/5 (80%) (5 Votes)

Entrails formed way back in 1990 but apparently did not release anything before 2009, one year after their reformation after about 11 years. Since then, they've been pretty active and that's a good thing as these guys know how to deliver the goods.

They're from Sweden, they play death metal. We've all heard that song. But Entrails do it right. This is textbook old-school Swedish death metal with that signature guitar sound that I just can't get tired of. Heavy and sometimes borderline doomy and crushing, galloping and machine-gunning riffs, harsh but decipherable vocals and, while I'm one to break out the air guitar regularly, on Rise of the Reaper I also had to dust off the air drums and go along. Good workout. Throw in a little thrash vibe just to spice things up. This album is pretty damn catchy and a lot of it just sticks around long after it's over and there's much foot-tapping and headbanging material here. This one is a no-brainer: If old-school Swedish death metal is your thing, there is much to like on Rise of the Reaper.
