4.0 out of 5 stars Improving on their comeback years... July 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The title of this review stands true as Grave returns with their 3rd comeback release 'As Rapture Comes.' It seems that Grave manages to get closer to their earlier sound (80s & 90s) each album since 'Back from the Grave' & comes close at times & dare I say, even right on the mark on this release; and boy this was desperately needed. Not to say that the last 2 albums were bad, they were great but they were often mid-paced throughout & they even managed to get even SLOWER at times & it sometimes would make you lose interest. On 'As Rapture Comes' you will still hear some of those similarities from the last 2 Grave releases but as I was eluding to, this time there are faster songs but even heavier than on the early Grave albums which makes for a much better listen! Look out, Grave is back w/ a vengeance...and folks the GODLY Peter Tagtgren is back as producer so there is no need to fear! Metal at it's heaviest!

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to crushing!!!!! August 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The mighty Grave is back with a vengeance. The last album "Fiendish regresion" was a solid piece of death metal, but not great. Now, with "As rapture comes" Grave back to their basic sound, raw and primitive, their own sound and with albums like "Kill" by Cannibal Corpse the competition is simply tough. This album is great in every sense, great guitar work, incredible solos and solid drumms. So if you want another incredible death metal release, try this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb stuff! July 10, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Grave's seventh long-player, 2006's "As Rapture Comes," is a major standout in the band's discography not only because it is such a good album, but because it is easily the Swedish-quartet's angriest and heaviest effort to date. An undeniably strong sense of livid rage permeates throughout these ten songs, thus being a big part of why they are also so brutal. Of course, the inclusion of blast beats also helps this cause greatly, too. Indeed, Grave could not have picked a better time to incorporate some of said drumming, because it goes together like peas and carrots with the band's usual abundance of great riffs and visceral vocals. And the heck of it all is, none of the blast sections found here are triggered -- they all possess a real, authentic, and organic/natural-sounding feel.

Other than those things, though, "Rapture" retains the band's patented grinding death metal-meets-doom metal with tinges of thrash and melodeath sound. So, yeah, this is pretty much the sound of Grave...on steroids! They are truly firing on all cylinders now -- the guitars, bass, drums, and vocals are all very potent and memorable. As a result, you would be very hard-pressed to find one moment of filler of even diluted weakness anywhere in this record's forty-one minute playing time.

Immediately following "Intro - Day Of Reckoning," a breathtaking and chilling, fifty-second long instrumental introductory soundscape, comes "Burn," which boasts a massive, adherent, and catchy groove tattooed by muscular, chugging riffs, screaming pinch harmonics, brutal blast beats, and gravel-throated vocals. A few good guitar solos (which are tucked into the background of the mix) are also included, here, as is an ominous outro comprised of wall-of-sound guitar feedback.

Not one Grave's best, but still a solid album, and if you're a Grave fan like me, it's definitely worth having.

3.0 out of 5 stars August 28, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Veterans of the death metal genre, Grave, has unleashed another cool album that isn't afraid to add groove to death metal and make it sound good (which usually isn't the case). Thankfully, we have no melody, no nice moments, no keyboards, this is straight ahead death metal that still sounds lethal in the year 2006. Grave are great in creating headbanging moments through catchy hooks, while the brutality of the music remains intact. The only downside to this disc is their cover of Alice in Chains' "Them Bones". Why? Not that AIN were a great band in the first place, but that song is simply horrible and giving it the death metal touch doesn't help its cause. Aside from this, the album delivers what you'd expect from Grave.
