Binah - Hallucinating in Ressurectre (2012)

This is the best Swedish death metal I've in over 20 years, and guess what? It's from England!

England, the UK in general, has been a monstrous fucking tear as of late with the emergence of bands such as Sheol, Vallenfyre, Malthusian, Zom and Binah to name a few. The interesting thing to me is that many of these bands seem to be gathering inspiration from Sweden and the U.S., and improving upon those styles as best they can.

'Hallucinating in Ressurectre' sounds like the album that should've came out after 'Left Hand Path'. Yeah, yeah... 'Clandestine' is a classic, yada, yada, but for me a lot of the doom -n- gloom weirdo-isms of Entombed's debut seemed to have been brushed aside in favor of creating an accessible death metal "hit". Binah seems to have captured and capitalized on all of the elements that made Entombed eerie to begin with.

Suffice to say, Binah possesses a guitar sound straight outta Sunlight Studios. Super thick magma barreling through the speakers with an ultra-creepy atmosphere to boot. I may be a little late to the show but Binah have swiftly become one of my favorite bands of the modern age. I'm very excited to see what comes next!
