Finally, I got this treasure in my collection! A new album from Swedish hurricane Birdflesh! This new LP is truly a bomb, which was dropped in the summer of 2019. As far as I know, this stuff should be out a year ago or something, but there was a technical delay. Talking about delay and expectations, there is a rule “when you wait for something, frustration can be even stronger”, but luckily this album became a real killer! Oh yeah, hard copies, there are 3 versions of this full length, I was lucky to get a tape edition from No Bread rec. Must say it looks very cute… Main colors a little bit different but they still look nice, and this colored orange shell, fuck it`s like a cherry on the top of the care, haha! Sound quality is high too, it sounds deep and clear… so it means that the tape wasn’t cheap. Every piece/part of this album surprised me…
Without a moment to breathe, the album’s title track hits harder than a supersonic rocket, haha! This album differs from previous Birdflesh works… this shit is brighter and contains even more fun! A new bearded member brought his own vision of party to this band. You will be melted by tons of great riffs and structures. Sometimes songs have more common with thrash sometimes with grind… but all of them are cheerful and full of stupid grind energy. I want to assure you that these “new” approaches and fresh blood didn’t ruin the old and brand spirit of Birdflesh. Guys are crazy as fuck/always, sound is loud, blast beats are fast, and brand vocal is here as well. Extreme Graveyard Tornado is more aggressive record than one might have expected. I have so much fun during the listening, I headbanged from start to finish, damn!
PS: This album will still wreck you and leave you behind as a pleased mess.
Remember guys, keep the underground music scene strong by supporting the artist/band/labels. Get your physical copy HERE!
