SKU: bc2e88e7c9e7 Category:


In Battle are from the Swedish black metal scene and consist of members of Odhinn, Setherial and Diabolical. The first two albums ‘In Battle’ from 1997 and ‘The Rage Of The Northmen’ from 1998 offered extremely fast Viking Black Metal without flourishes while this the third full length album ‘Welcome To The Battlefield’ is pure death metal, super-fast, though quite technical, too. Stylistically it rather tends to the US corner, which isn’t surprising, because for one, Erik Rutan (Morbid Angel/Hate Eternal) mixed and mastered this thing and furthermore, the whole album, apart from the drum parts, was thrashed down in Tampa/Florida. The result is a thick hate clot that fulfils every wish. Your ass is kicked on such a high level playing-wise that it just cracks. However they don’t blast throughout, but there is a thorough amount of variation. Bizarre riffs meet melodic ones, brutish mid-tempo parts are superseded by insane high speed hare-fuck tempo. In Battle have got the hang of how to create the almost perfect balance of extremity and technique – basically a dream for every brutality fan with class. Track listing: 1. Shunned By Life 2.
