The vocals sound kind of distant, like if it was the result of an echo produced by a ravenous ghoul that is persecuting you. The remaining songs "Bleed for Me", "And So is Life" and "Sickening Art" contain more thrashing energy than all the retro thrash bands combined. Dismembered - Dismember - Like An Everflowing Stream (CD, the fourth track is a highlight as if there really were, because everything is remarkable and it perfectly represents what the lyrics say.
For instance, it starts as if a candle was being lit, illuminating a dark labyrinth that has fire all around it and voices that serve as a prelude of a tragedy to come in this part of the song, some menacing solos can be heard and then the riffs come at a mid pace. At aroundimmediately after Matti's coarse growl pronounces "And I'm rotting with belief", some of the most twisted leads I've ever heard take the front seat. That section of the song tries to illustrate how the beast, even though admittedly in grief and full of regret, wants to escape its fate.
Finally, after a mid paced thrash bridge, the songs recovers its blazing speed once again, where the beast accepts its death with open arms. The lyrics and songwriting, as previously mentioned, are compelling and adequately reflect the violent nature of this kind of music.
The drums, delivered by Fred Estby, are intense and proficient all the way through, still not stealing the predominant and brilliant role that the guitars provide. The bass is omnipresent, adding a thicker, heavier sound to this monstrous piece. It gallops in a barbaric and monolithic fashion with no intention of giving the listener a slight rest from the realms of utter heaviness. Nicke Anderson's job also has to be highlghted, because he contributed with the best guitar leads he has ever crafted, even better than the ones present in "Left Hand Path" or "Clandestine".
You can't possibly go wrong with this record if you are a fan of death metal and particularly of the Swedish style. That is why I always return to it after listening to a mediocre or unfulfilling death metal composition, since it never fails to please my cravings for sheer aggressiveness and musical excellence.
Words can't describe the profound appreciation I feel for "Like an Everflowing Stream" and I can't ignore the influence it had on my musical taste about a year ago when I first heard it. It's the first metal record I have ever owned and when it comes to death metal, it remains unmatched for me or at least I haven't heard any album that surpasses it to my Dismembered - Dismember - Like An Everflowing Stream (CD.
If you still don't own it you better buy it ASAP! It has timeless melodies, transcendental solos, insane vocals, unearthly riffs and a perfect cohesion that borders on a death metal utopia. This is the stream that death metal drinks from. Many albums came before this, but to my ears none surpass it.
Upon its release, it exceeded death metal, and when I found myself at its banks it exceeded any level of music I thought possible. What boggles me is that such material was written and played by boys, and I say boys because these guys were still primarily teens or in the teenage mindset. This is and will always be ; nothing else in death metal tops it.
Death metal matured to the point when it became perfected on this album: guitar tone, bass coating, growling style, menacing leads, memorable passages, remarkable composition, monolithic scope, and riffs.
The riffs on this album are impeccable, malevolent, and greased with boiling distortion. No riff on this album that I hear falls short of making me headbang, as it hopefully will do for anyone that listens to death metal. These riffs, backed by colossal bass support, are embalmed in the distinctive chainsaw guitar tone.
What Dismember presented with Like An Ever Flowing Stream with boss cover art is a flawless album that tops any death metal that came before it. For a music genre governed by core instruments, there is no better example of pushing the genre beyond its limitations. With perfection reached, the band surpassed even that to create the most dejected, dynamic death metal album. The production is fantastic, with thickness ripe from the pounding double bass to the bubbling bass booms to the coarse, frenzied riffs.
It's a beastly album in nature and classy in execution while remaining doomy without sacrificing the compositional strength. Like An Ever Flowing Stream is ideal death metal in every way, and its place in death metal is second to none. The form of music exhibited in this one, i. The instrumentation skills of every member are brilliantly revealed here, and this has made the album sound this beautiful.
The whole record is an incorporation of really good tracks, where all riffs are made genuinely impressive. There are melodic constituents and there is speed. The lead solos are another aromatic portions. It would have been better if he had chosen this style throughout the album.
Anyway whatever he has done, unlike most new death metal vocalists around, he has spoken the Dismembered - Dismember - Like An Everflowing Stream (CD right from the depths, with absolute powerful in-your-face deliverance. The drumming by Fred Estby is substantial; his rage seems totally ceaseless, stably atrocious all the time.
There are lots of headbangable moments in between, and this is why I love death metal so much. The production is somewhat raw and consequently the sound appears to be thrashy. Among all the bands in Swedish death metal genre, Dismember have a honoured place along with Carnage, Grave, Entombed and Unleashed because they are the true founders.
The chainsaw guitars are now a well stuck characteristic in the sound and some more melodic lines already appeared to make the sound even better and various without losing anything in impact. Despite the young age of the members, Dismember were already very good musicians and composers. The production is clear and the guitar sound does the main work here: a real wall of sound. The following semi blast beats and the various stop and go forced me to forget the melody of the few seconds before.
Let the blood stream flow…. Since the radio never have been interested in playing Death Metal it wasn't so important to make singles, though Dismember released a picture-disc of "Skin Her Alive". This might have been both good for Dismember but in my opinion it's more worth not having a single in this case. Well, because if they had a single I know they had a video for "Soon To Be Dead" they would have been more limited, Dismembered - Dismember - Like An Everflowing Stream (CD. These guys were young here but they could play the shit out of the instruments.
The only thing not made by the band is the guitar solos which is played by then Entombed-drummer Nicke Andersson except for "Override of the Overture" which is played by David Blomqvist. It's a very stabilized album, the tracks are not repeating each other but at the sime time they're all perfect. They almost sound sad in some way, listen to "Dismembered" for example. It's a great piece of Death Metal history, I strongly recomend it.
All good tunes, no fillers just killers! Another thing is also the album cover. Album is similar to early Entombed, whoever likes it should like this as well. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. Abba were always known for the exquisitely layered sound,and although they are a different source of energy.
Dismember are equal in brilliancy. Lemmy had begun to plant seeds way back in the 60s with The Vickers. An as anyone with a fraction of a brain cell can hear. Excelente material de estos suecos locos,la verdad es que es un album que desde el principio hasta el final no decae y aunque no excesivamente Dismembered - Dismember - Like An Everflowing Stream (CD como algunas grabaciones de sus paisanos entiendase Entombed,Therion etc,es totalmente Death Metal vieja escuela y ademas de que vienen en el librito algunas fotos muy maniacas y la letra de las canciones asi como los creditos.

Gran edicion en cd de Willowtip Records que incluye los 4 bonus tracks de esta etapa, del primer album de estos iconos suecos del Death Metal, booklet de 8 paginas con letras y fotos, esto es una delicia para oidos sangrantes, siempre recomendado.
Excelente servicio por parte se Amazon. Amazing album, would give 5 stars if the album cover wasn't with splits on the top side. Searching for something different in death metal, not only endless blast beats and gutural vocals, i suddenly got into this album. This is the kind of metal i like, powerfull riffs, good composition an the lyrics fits perfectly, is fast and has its mid paced moments too.
No tired nor boring, just Fantastic old school swedish death metal! Like An Everflowing Stream is the proof of evolution in metal in a very good way. Taking elements of thrash and turning then into something more agressive and mean. This album is a masterpiece, like most of death metal albums produced in sweden in the very beginning of the '90s.
The other Dismember albums are good as well, but this started all. Since i listened to this one, i knew there was another world in metal universe. Definitely one of the best albums I've heard in quite a while. Skull Crushing Awesomeness awaits all those who dare to purchase this purfect, wonderful album.
I heard it twice through, and only got tired perhaps by the last two bonus tracks, they're a bit much of a GREAT thing. I've never heard of this group before but bought a bunch of stuff ofF the recommendations of RYM. Lost Gem this is, and the cover art is great. CD is done classy-like, sound is fine, the remastering is exceptional.
