Withering Surface
Scarlet Silhouettes

Gothenberg style Swedish death metal from Denmark. Its all pretty upbeat and some of the riffs are cool, but as with so many NWOSMDM type bands, they all start to run together (the songs and the bands). Everything is played well, production is clean and clear, but it just seems so totally unoriginal that I don't want to do more with this CD than look at the picture on the inlay card of a young woman playing with her butt with a feather. Oh yea, and the photos of the chubby singer wearing gothic make-up is funny - not quite worth buying the CD though.
