Into The Crypts Of Blasphemy

Into The Crypts Of Blasphemy
(Pulverised Records - 2010)

Interment is a band that may be known to fans of the early Swedish death metal scene. They formed as Beyond in 1988 before changing the name to Interment before the release of their second demo in 1991. They released a few demos up to 1994 before splitting up and reunited in 2007 for a split EP with Funebrarum. Well, 22 years after the band formed we are finally treated to their debut album!
Into The Crypts Of Blasphemy is a real treat for fans of classic Swedish death metal. The whole feel of the album, from the music to the album cover, is old school death metal. There is absolutely nothing here that you haven't heard before - the guitar tone, the vocals, the drum patterns; its all taken from the early nineties blueprint.
However, I take nothing away from this album. It is a fantastic listen from beginning to end and really showcases quality death metal that for me ranks up there with the likes of Hail Of Bullets' debut and Ares Kingdom's albums in showing that new death metal albums can stand shoulder to shoulder with the early genre classics.
