This is Entombed's sophomore release which like their debut album "Left Hand Path" was also recorded at the renowned Sunlight Studios in Sockholm, Sweden and produced by Tomas Skogsberg.
The year 1991 had produced some of the decades most brutal Death Metal albums of all time ie...Grave "Into The Grave", Asphyx "The Rack", Unleashed "Where No Life Dwells" etc...and of course Entombed's "Clandestine" which by far is an outsatnding follow up release.
Like "Left Hand Path" the brutality and heaviness is still present, but on this album their seems to be a bit more melody in the songs and catchier riffs with more hooks that will keep you listening and wanting more which makes the replay value high on this album. Up to this album I was a huge Entombed fan, seems like Entombed kind of went disarray after this release heading more towards a rock sound that just wasn't the same. It's kind of hard to say which is better "Left Hand Path" or "Clandestine", of course I will always enjoy listening to both these albums, but I think that "Clandestine" is just a tiny bit better production and songwriting wise.
For those of you that haven't heard this album yet or even heard of it which i'm sure most of you have, you must go buy it or burn it off someone because this is pure Swedish Death Metal at its finest.
