Sentenced – Shadows Of The Past LP
1991 debut by Finland's Sentenced. Been waiting to get my grubby little hands on this reissue for some time, jazzed to finally have it. Shadows Of The Past has a bit more in common with its neighbors to the west than with its fellow countrymen's efforts. What we have here is an album in the classic Swedish mold, which stacks up against some of the best that Grave, Entombed and Dismember in particular had to offer, with perhaps a dash of Bolt Thrower knuckle dragging thrown in for good measure. An absolute gem that has been overlooked for years and finally seems to be getting its due. Snag this reissue while it's still around, or rot to dead. Clear vinyl.
