Swedish metallers Spawn Of Possession's curiously titled label debut is one heck of a brutal listen. But why 'Cabinet'? Cabinets aren't very metal (see also: "Mantlers"). Maybe they keep their metal supplies in an evil cabinet? I dunno.
Their second release, 'Noctambulant' (2006) is another relentless beating ("noctambulant" refers to sleepwalking. Kind of metal, I guess...?), proving that these guys have major chops, and they're not afraid to use them. This is technical death metal done right, heavy on the weird and face-meltingly grindy.
