Formed in 1990, Sweden’s Uncanny was an early progenitor of the Swedish death metal scene. After a couple demos, a split and an oft-overlooked full-length in 1994, Uncanny faced an untimely and unfortunate demise. Eighteen years after their lone debut, Splenium for Nyktophobia, Uncanny returns with two brand new tracks featured on this 7″. This is not a reformation without merit. “Creation’s Tomb” and “The Path of Flesh” are authentic slabs of death metal done the old way.
This 7″ has three editions. Black vinyl version with matte finish glue pocket and insert, the green vinyl version which is exclusive to the UK’s Me Saco Un Ojo Records and the white vinyl version exclusive to Dark Descent Records. Cover art was skillfully provided by Rafał Kruszyk.
|Uncanny – The Path of Flesh|
MCMXCI – MCMXCIV is as near a perfect document of Sweden’s legendarily fertile death metal scene as you’re going to get in 2011; an unfuckwithable memorium to one of the country’s best bands who never ‘made it’ to levels of their peers, the mighty Uncanny… Consider this a must-purchase release if your tastes even BEGIN to bend towards the dead heavy, dead evil DEATH METAL.
