As far as grindcore goes, Helvete (Swedish term for 'Hell') is a thunderous beast of an album dished out by the defunct Nasum. Mieszko Talarczyk's growls have quite a nice amount of ruthlessness in them, while he and Anders Jakobson venture through these unholy songs like a jackhammer exploring the insides of a steamroller. Granted, the entire record shouldn't be known for whatever stench of variety left itself upon said album; instead, Helvete must be recognized for impending chaos which will soon crawl into the stomachs of society.
Nasum is a very accessible band as far as grindcore goes. The production is relatively clean, they use quieter sections, and they aren't afraid to play a song for longer than two minutes. One advantage of the production is it allows the basswork on this album to really shine. Listen to the outro of "Scoop," where the bass takes the lead and grooves relentlessly. "Stormshield" has some fantastic dynamic contrast, oscillating between a quieter dirty bass and cleaner guitar section and a furious chaotic section. Helvete is a strong effort, if a little top-heavy, and essential for any fan of grindcore.
