Interment - Into The Crypts Of Blasphemy
Swedens Interment is another Death Metal band that was exhumed a couple of years ago. The whole thing started back in 1988, but the band didn´t release anything until 1991. Within the next three years, Interment launched a few demos (“Where Death Will Increase”, “Forward To The Unknown” and “The Final Chapter”) before the guys called it quits and went on to form Dellamorte, Centinex and other purveyors of the early Scandinavian Death Metal scene. Interment faded into obscurity but suddenly came back to life to release a Split CD with US gore dealers Funebrarum in 2007, followed by a demo compilation in February 2010. “Into The Crypts Of Blasphemy” is a consistent continuation of the former path and contains nothing else but solid, not too technical old school Death Metal. Of course the band shows cool skills and the tracks are thought out. Maybe some more intricate structures would have ruined to flow as well as the good nostalgic feeling, so everything turns out fine. Clocking in with a total 36 minutes, “Into The Crypts Of Blasphemy” is a great soundtrack for your personal journey through time back to the beginning of an innovative movement. The recording quality, the song writing, the atmosphere… everything reminds me of early Dismember and similar brutal outfits. Crunchy guitars meet a dark and hoarse sounding vocalist and the typical but beneficial drumming with occasional blast beats.. But Interment isn´t just another clone act (keep in mind the guys are around since the late 80´s). This release is a filthy but credible old school worship and Pulverised Records would be well adviced to keep Interment under their wings. “Into The Crypts Of Blasphemy” is completed by a great artwork and should be recommended to every fan of Carnage, early Unleashed or the already mentioned Dismember. Don´t hesitate and check this down tuned old school massacre out. Sweden reclaims the crown of Death Metal.
