As Rapture Comes
October 2006
Released: 2006, Century Media
Rating: 3.0/5
Reviewer: Arto Lehtinen

The Swedish long time death metal squad, Grave, have been pretty active since returning to the frontline of the old school death metal genre. With killer albums they constantly have proven that point. AS RAPTURE COMES is the eighth deadly output in a row and no mercy is given on any release. The four-piece continues with their wellknown savage onslaught by kicking off the album with the incredible long “Burn”. AS RAPUTE COME is another piece of slap of the old school Stockholm death metal. Grave have always had a sound of their own where they could easily be recongnized from other Swedish death metal acts of the 90’s. The approach is still intact on the eighth output. It's as raw and rough as on every Grave album. Even though the legendary Grave have ungergone some changes in the line-up, the vocalist/guitarist Ola Lindgren has been able to guide the ship through the rotten to the core during these years. His voice has become a leading part of the Grave sound since Soulless due to the result of the departure of Jorgen Sandstorm. The stuff on the whole album is quite quaranteed, but obviously a couple of songs for example “By Demons Bred” stand out from the rest of the stuff. The Swedish death metallers have picked up rather an odd cover choice namely Alice In Chains’ “Them Bones” to make some deadly handling for it. Of course, it was more than difficult to recognize it. The 10 song album is a metal lesson to any fanatical death metal freak digging pure old school Stockholm death metal.
