Review: Grave – Dominion VIII [2008]

Veteran Swedish band Grave returns with another installment of sinewy death metal that blends high-speed velocity and doom-laden crunch on the nine-track Dominion VIII. This devastating affair demonstrates the band’s ability to go from slow crawl to rapid-fire pace in the blink of an eye (“Annihilated Christ”) in addition to displaying Grave’s unwavering attachment to the darker side of the spectrum on cuts like “Stained By Hate.” 20 years in and still as extreme as their early days, this truculent crew returns in fine fighting form, ready to go into metal combat with the vitriolic virtue and fortified firepower that has rendered them one of the Swedish elite death metal’s forces. www.regainrecords.comMike SOS
