old death metal, is that your bag, baby?: Ribspreader (Sweden): "Meathyms"
old death metal, is that your bag, baby?: Ribspreader (Sweden): "Meathyms" Ribspreader: “Meathymns” (Vic Records). Rogga Johansson is a riff-making machine of old-style death metal. Rogga appears to have about 567 bands and I’m not sure, but it looks like most of them are old-style death metal with grooves. This is the fifth album (I think) by Ribspreader and it sounds like Autopsy and early Entombed jamming. It’s simple, direct and for headbanging, with a musical mentality akin to Overkill, Motorhead, Slayer, Destruction, Sodom, Master: give the listener what the listener wants. Rogga supporters expect him to make groovy old death metal and he’s glad to oblige. Wham, bam, another one by Rogga's assembly line factory of death metal. www.facebook.com/pages/Ribspreader/148182408532846
