Invasion - Berzerk Artillery Barrage
This album has a very Swedish feel to it with throwbacks to earlier ENTOMBED and (especially vocally) old UK masters CARCASS in their "Heartwork" period. And for one this album didn't bore me to tears like most modern bands trying to recreate the sound of the old Swedes. The comparisons with these bands although based on sound are true they are in no way an indication of INVASION themselves as at no times do they equal the quality set by those greats of the genre.

There isn't much to say that you couldn't already guess, fast drums, heavy riffs CARCASS style vocals... This is however done rather well which is refreshing to hear in the midst of all these bands who undeservedly get signed and release mediocre attempts at a style that can no longer evolve due to past mastery by earlier greats.
