One of the earliest Swedish Death Metal beast WOMBBATH rises from reanimation with a fresh-born disease entitled “Downfall Rising” in 22 years!
Strickened with the rancid HM-2 stench throughout the entire record, WOMBBATH displays some of the most sordid riffs with a tinge of masterful guitar leadwork, courtesy of current Skineater and ex-In Thy Dreams six-stringer Håkan Stuvemark. Old SweDeath is once again glorified by the defenders of the faithful.
Mixed by the band's very own skinsbasher Jeramie Kling (The Absence, Infernaeon, etc) and mastered by James Murphy (Disincarnate, ex-Death, ex-Testament, ex-Obituary, etc) at the SafeHouse Production, USA.

Unfortunately, this is a prime example of an album with a strong opener and a weak rest of the album. The production is excellent; the instruments are half decent; the vocals are okay, but the lyrics are downright cringey. Heads for the Dead has no right to be as popular as they are within the metal underground, to be frank. Camelus Dromedarius
