GOD AMONG INSECTS are Death Metal, brutal Swedish Old School Death! Those 10 acoustic demolition hammers grind through your ears, sometimes in hyper blast speed, sometimes midtempo. Great, this is how Death Metal is supposed to sound like! Checking out the GAI members it´s no wonder that this CD convinces totally: In the band are e. g. Emperor Magnus Caligula of Dark Funeral and Tobben Gustafsson, Vomitory drummer. Only the restricted playing time on this CD is something to complain about. Still both thumbs up! You can be looking forward to live shows of this Swedish quintet!
