New "Made in Sweden" Column--Merciless and Carnage!
8/25/2017 8:15:06 PM by Frank Hill




Continuing our ongoing look at the Swedish extreme music scene of the late 80s/early 90s.

MERCILESS - THE AWAKENING
The record is a monumental achievement for extreme metal in Sweden. While it doesn't contain the traditional down-tuned sound that would define the country's death metal scene, its aggression and dark nature is certainly a catalyst for more extreme bands. It pushed the envelope from vocals to speed.

CARNAGE - DARK RECOLLECTIONS
We touched on the first Dismember demos and their pivotal 1991 debut 'Like an Everflowing Stream'. It's only fitting that we analyze a band that had very close ties with Dismember, so much that they shared ideas, songs and band members--Carnage.
