Somehow, in the last week, I've managed to listen to nothing but Cock Sparrer, Black Sabbath, and Saint Vitus non-fucking stop. But, last night while shooting the shit with the dudes from The Skuds and Nuclear Blast Suntan I made the inebriated claim that Entombed's "Left Hand Path" is the greatest of all Swedish Death Metal albums. Chris on the other hand respectfully disagreed with me and insisted that in fact, Dismember "Like and Ever Flowing Stream" was in fact, where it was at. Not exactly being the worlds foremost authority on Swedish Death Metal I figured I should probably just drunkenly call him a motherfucker and insist that I was right anyways in order to preserve my status.
Thank god for drunk music bullshitting because after listening to this album today, I can officially say that I have a new, tied for 1st place favorite Swedish Death Metal album. Fuck yeah dudes, LaEFS is definitely a perfect compliment to LHP. Just a few less speed changes and perhaps a little lower on the sonically mind annihilating parts but on the whole a little more charging and in your fucking face. Shit, a few months ago in the Left Hand Path post I called it m favorite punk album of the year or something. Well this has replaced it. LHP is now one of my 2 top punk albums. So much hardcore/d-beat influence here. It rules.
