I remember purchasing the debut album Tales Of The Coffin Born back in 2010 for two main reasons, namely Kam Lee and Rogga Johansson. I was interested to see how the Floridian and Swedish death metal scenes could be merged and come up with a sound that would be considered as a compromise to both yet still a killer album that would keep fans of both the scenes happy. Well with one listen, my concerns were thrown out the window as it was a quality record full of killer riffs from riff-meister Johansson and stunning vocals from Lee. Their other project at the time, Bone Gnawer, was not too far off this as a reference point but this album was much darker and sinister in content. The Grotesquery’s first three albums were based on a HP Lovecraft trilogy and this time you only need to have a look at the front cover to see what it’s all about. The Grotesquery is more of a concept band that Bone Gnawer was not and I feel it adds to a positive experience for the listener to have this. Who knows, this could be the start of the “Werewolf Chronicles”. Classic death metal like The Grotesquery is designed with a ripping good time in mind, and rip it does – limb from limb. Is it predictable? Yes. Can you still like this? Absolutely. Musicians like Rogga Johansson don’t ply their seemingly inexhaustible verve and ability in a bid to reinvent the wheel, they do so to keep it turning and forging ever on. If you’re a fan of the man’s work – and if not, fucking why not – then you probably already know what The Lupine Anathema sounds like. So stop what you’re doing, turn your eyes to the moon and embrace the call of the wild – the beast demands it.
