Seance (Swe) - Fornever Laid To Rest (1992)
One of the most brutal death metal albums from Sweden's old school. The sound and style of Seance on "Fornever..." is decidedly more in the vein of Dutch and American death metal bands and does not have the "Stockholm sound" you find in bands like Dismember, Afflicted and Entombed. Deicide's "Legion" or Polluted Inheritance's "Ecocide" are good comparisons to be made, although this music is more authentic and varied sounding than Deicide... far less cheesy as well. Seance lost integral member Patrik Jensen (Witchery, The Haunted, Satanic Slaughter) and soon after became far less interesting so I would only recommend this album and the demo "Levitised Spirit."
