Gothenburg, Sweden is the location, but do not expect to hear any of your average and typical melo-Death Metal from this act. They are called Creeping Flesh, and here's their second four-song EP titled Rising Terror, which makes a polite nod to a couple of names in the more extreme side of Metal.

The first band that comes to mind when listening to this outing is undoubtedly Bolt Thrower. Right from the first moments of "Airborne", when the song starts kicking off its first chords in the air, Bolt Thrower's presence is unquestionable, playing a pretty major role within Creeping Flesh's sound. Moving on to the next song, "Terrorize", I cannot help but bring up the next comparison: Demigod. "Terrorize" flirts with some of those cleverly crafted ingredients, similar to how the Finnish Death Metal icons have always tried to make their songs stand out. The guitars carry the same kind of heaviness and crispiness that you can find from any of Demigod's three albums. Start listening from the 2:22 mark to find this connection. Third, "Essence of Evil", follows pretty much the same war-path Hail of Bullets through which they reached many victories, ruthlessly beating down all of their enemies. The last two songs, "Kill Count" and "Fields of Rotting Flesh", continue Creeping Flesh's successful bombardment in the name of all-crushing, old school Death Metal, asking no questions but just offering a couple of instant kills instead, leaving a tick smoke and stench of a rotting flesh behind them.

Creeping Flesh is on command. Prepare to follow their rules, in the name of limbs-oozing and severe old school Death Metal.
