      Coldworker's first album (2006).

      Coldworker is an unsurprising death metal band from Sweden, lacking any sort of creativity but still remaining enjoyable for those with an interest in the more aggressive side of death metal. Led by fast, relentlessly hammering drums, a deep growled vocal performance and some heavy guitars riffs that occasionally veer into enjoyable solos, such as the one in 'D.E.A.D.,' this is death metal performed by-the-numbers for those with un-ambitious tastes.

      The production job from Swedish death metal legend Dan Swanö (Edge of Sanity) is probably the best aspect here, and the worst aspect is just how samey all the songs sound. Once you've heard the first song, there's very little reason to continue ploughing through the near-forty-minute recording unless you desire more of the same, but while a bit of variety or creativity would be admirable, and certainly in line with the best the Swedish scene has to offer, it's important that there are some distinctly unmemorable death metal records brought out every once in a while, just for the sake of comparison.
