I got one of Santa’s Amazon CDs that I was most anticipating today – “Wolverine Blues” by Entombed. I am going to make an honest effort with this CD to acquire a taste for death metal, because I feel there’s something good there that I’m missing.
Actually “Wolverine Blues” is legendary for pioneering the “Death ‘n’ Roll” genre – death metal with groovy rock ‘n’ roll elements encorporated. The liner notes on the CD (won’t find them on a damn download) explain that this was Entombed’s way of countering all the electronics that were beginning to overwhelm death metal at the time. (More electronics almost always means more suck.)
Today we start. I’ll keep you posted.
