Specialists/collaborators reviews

Vim Fuego
In their day, Entombed were untouchable. While many consider their debut "Left Hand Path" to be their best, I prefer "Clandestine" as it is heavier and more polished, while retaining the crunch and aggression of its predecessor.

The track "Living Dead" has to be one of the most face–ripping openings to an album of all time. No messing around with samples, feedback, or acoustic introductions, just straight into the full–on death metal maelstrom.

Listening to this album is best done in one sitting, as an entirety, rather than dissected track by track. Each song seems to feed off that before it. There are more subtle moments throughout the album, including a few choice samples. These further amplify the brutality of the headlong charge through one of death metal's Finest Hours.

Even though vocalist LG Petrov was temporarily absent from the band during the recording, the vocals of Nicke Anderson (not Johnny Dordevic, as the liner notes say) are the most brutal the band produced in their recording career. The guitar sound is actually crisper and punchier than on "Left Hand Path", and the bass and drums are also more clearly defined than on the debut.

After "Clandestine" Entombed's career took a downward slide into the murky world of "Death n' Roll", almost completely deserting their death metal roots. Entombed have since rediscovered the Left Hand Path, but everything else pales in comparison to 'Clandestine'.
Warthur
Another great album from Entombed sees them opening up the style of Left Hand Path just a little, resulting in a sound which is just a touch more accessible whilst still retaining all of the bite of the previous album. To my ears, it sounds like this time around the band stay in firmly death metal territory more, with less excursions into doom metal or prog metal than previously (and I didn't catch any horror movie soundtracks era), but at least it's top-shelf death metal which the band are able to lend plenty of life and verve to. If you enjoyed Left Hand Path, get this one, because it nicely complements its predecessor.
