A little clarification first: Nicke Andersson sang on all the songs. At this point in death metal not many bands had 'excelled' in the vocalist department anyhow. So his performance does nothing to hinder the quality of the music therein. But keep in mind there are no Morbid Angel-type guttural growls to be heard.
After a good 5-10 listens, I've found the overall pace gets monotonous here and there. The guitar work is classic Entombed, death n' roll. Upon listening to Morning Star and Inferno, even Uprising I can hear small tidbits of what made this album so great.
If you're an Entombed fan at all, you can't afford to be snob. Everything they put out is heavy and will stick your head comfortably.
Listen up and enjoy. Death metal history in the making.
There are so many reasons to love this album: songs like Living Dead and Choas Breed are really heavy but have a major groove about them, as well. Evilyn, with it's downbeat time signature, is a major departure from the lack of variation that is so common in this genre. Through The Collonades and Stranger Aeons are just very well written; the composition is fantastic.
L. G. Petrov's vocals are the most massive in the genre, forceful, gutteral, and very agressive. He manages to stay ahead of the music, never falling behind or getting lost in the mix, a bit of a rarity in music this heavy. Add to the equation that the percussion hits hard, but is really tight, and you get one of the most devestating overall sounds out there. Many call it "The Swedish Sound" (these guys are from Sweden) or "death-and-roll" (because it's sort of a synthesis between death metal and more groove-based rock-and-roll), but no matter what you call it, no band has ever done it this well. Period.
There is some disagreement out there about Entombed's other efforts, but one thing is clear: Clandestine is a masterpiece.
Favorites: "Stranger Eons" , "Severe Burns" and the opening "Living Dead". Classic. Menacing vocals, buzzing guitars, great overall production from the famous Sunlight Studios.
