In the decades since Entombed, Dismember, At the Gates, and 1000 other Swedish death metal bands destroyed the landscape, their devastating sounds have been imitated but never surpassed. In collaboration with Swedish Death Metal author Daniel Ekeroth and Decibel Magazine, this week host Ian Christe (Sound of the Beast) hunts down and collects an hour of the most caustic death metal reprobates currently scorching their native soil. Grab a shotgun and a shovel, and prepare for the grave-ripping sounds of Invidious, Repugnant, Necrovation, Tribulation, Decapitation, Stench, Morbus Chron, Bastard Priest, Repuked, and more! Veta dina rötter!
