Pre-Entombed Swedish death metal powerhouse Nihilist released two demos and two EPs before becoming Entombed and going on to great fame in the death metal underground. Old timers used to talk about the first Entombed album wistfully, pointing out that the “real” Swedish death metal revolution had happened with Carnage and Nihilist.
Addressing this outlook, in 2005 Threeman Recordings issued Nihilist (1987-1989) which compiled these and another recording session, and in 2018, this was re-issued by Independence Day Recordings as Carnal Leftovers. On May 1, 2020, Earache Records will re-issue Carnal Leftovers for its big-label debut.
The compilation consists of two demos, “Premature Autopsy” and “Only Shreds Remain,” paired with the Drowned and Radiation Sickness EPs and the Entombed demo “But Life Goes On.” With only one duplicated track (“Face of Evil”) this makes a handy view into the career of this band before they were recognized, when they were most focused on the intensity of communication.
You can pre-order the CD, LP, and tshirt in various packages through the Earache webstore, anticipating it shipping in May of this year.
