Grave - Back From The Grave
It seems that there is a re-emergence of the old Swedish Death Metal sound coming about as late. First came UNLEASHED with what many said was a lame effort, next BLOODBATH showing how well a collection of amazing musicians can pay homage to their own personal heroes and now GRAVE return as one of the few remaining original Swedish Death Metal bands who have kept their sound true for around a decade.

Well "Back From The Grave" is a solid if not spectacular return for GRAVE, its sloth like tempo is one of the main drawbacks for me as I was hoping for a few more blastbeats. There is much comparison to be made with BOLT THROWER because of the relying on bone crunchingly heavy riffs as opposed to the extreme speeds of the older days.

The production is excellent and the guitar sounds are amazing, just as in the days of yore with great albums like "Left Hand Path", this sound alone will make even the most changed Death Metaller feel severe nostalgia.

There are some great tracks and some not so good for example "Below" is one track that I would frequently skip. A good effort but far from their best. (Online December 25, 2002)
