God Amongst Insects started out two years ago with one purpose: to play death metal. Their debut album, WORLD WIDE DEATH, came out in 2004. It was recorded in Studio Abyss with Tommy Tägtgren. GAI can surely be called an all-star project if you check the line-up.
In August 2005 the band entered Studio Abyss again to record ZOMBIENOMICON. The mixing on this album was done by Tägtgren and Lord K; the mastering was handled by the famous Dan Swanö. The production is brilliant, but honestly, what can go wrong when you use the legendary Tommy Tägtgren?
GAI’s music sounds a lot like the early death metal scene in Sweden in the beginning of the 90’s. Even though I’m not a huge fan of lead singer Emperor Magus Caligula, he sounds just right in GAI, especially when he growls with all the depth of his lungs and then sings in a more ordinary style.
All of the lyrics are written by Emperor Magus Caligula, and the music is composed by Lord K Philipson. The album is of a reasonable length – 40 minutes, which is perfect. All of the material is mind-blowing and absolutely brilliant. I can’t pick any favorite tracks, because they’re all amazing.
ZOMBIENOMICON is a perfect album full of hateful, aggressive, well-played heavy death metal, and I really recommend this album to every fan of harder music. The album is so damned great I don’t really know what to write next...
