Guest review by
I can say for certain that the curiously monikered Slakthus Gamleby, the third album by Swedish super-group Demiurg, has, from me, received the most spins of any record this side of 2010. Perhaps there's a natural gravitation toward anything featuring the multi-pie fingering legend Dan Swan but it's also because of the damned digestibility of the thing; goes down easier than a $12 street walker. Slick, meaty old-school death metal rhythms, growls and cleans from Rogga (with a superbly versatile repertoire I might add: from Åkerfeldt to Kjellson), a few hints of prog all cemented down with copious amounts of melody laid thick in the forms of magnanimous leads, synths and female power-vocals from Autumn's Marjan Welma all encompassed in a production you could eat your dinner off. Envisage Edge Of Sanity's Crimson II or Purgatory Afterglow with Bloodbath and Ribspreader's heavy pace, groove and aggression and you'll have a decent impression of the tone and style. In fact much of Edge of Sanity's character creeps onto this one, unsurprising considering Swan's duties on leads and keyboards. Warby's sterling performance on drums is also worth mentioning.

I always forget just how damn good this album is. Highly considering throwing a 9 at it. Dan Swano is love, Dan Swano is life.
Edit: Fuck it. Another 9 for another brilliant Swano album
