A month ago in my excellent Entombed side-projects post I promised more Entombed the following week. Well, that never happened for reasons unknown even to me.
The post I had planned was this one. A thirteen track, forty-five minute compilation chronologically presenting Entombed's career so far. It has tracks from all of their studio albums:
The death metal milestones Left Hand Path and Clandestine, the significantly rockier Wolverine Blues, the even rockier DCLXVI: To Ride, Shoot Straight And Speak The Truth (which I've decided is a horror punk album more than anything else), the amazing but horribly misunderstood Same Difference, the garage-y shenanigans of Uprising, the thrashy Morning Star, the dark noise of Inferno and the sort-of-back-to-the-roots-but-not-really Serpent Saints.
There's also random material from EP's and stuff sprinkled through-out for added flavour.
Here I could rant against all those obviously deaf douchebags who keep going on about how those first two albums are the only ones worth owning and how rubbish the "death 'n' roll" of the latter albums was. How Entombed sold out and turned their back on death metal and blah blah blah.
But I won't. For these people are douchebags whom I do not wish to waste my time on. Did I mention they're also deaf? Possibly mildly retarded as well.
I mean, if you don't get the mastery of To Ride, Shoot Straight... or Same Difference there is something seriously wrong with you. You're missing out on a scale too grand for the human brain to comprehend. Yes, I too salivated over Daniel Ekeroth's Swedish Death Metal and Albert Mudrian's Choosing Death, but for fuck's sake climb out of that sad little hole of nostalgia and douchebaggery you've dug for yourself and get with the program.
Satan laughs as you eternally masturbate to Like An Ever Flowing Stream using your own tears for lubrication. Come and join us in the reptile dance. Dance with me and the devil. We fucked it up, fucked it up, and we'll keep fucking the Boss Heavy Metal up your ass as we level. You douchebag.
Uprising is another fine example. If you can't appreciate the brute force of Say It In Slugs (which is what Kyuss would sound like if they gave death metal a try) I want you to stop reading this blog until you get a fucking clue.
