GADGET “The Funeral March” LP

GADGET (SWE) “The Funeral March” gatefold LP (7 Degrees Records) 12e

If you’re into eurogrind you must be familiar with Gadget by now. They are amongst the best that Sweden has ever exported in terms of grind. Their 2004 debut “Remote” has took the scene by storm because their excellent blend of grind was intense, varied, and infused with some unexpected elements like black metal parts.

To be honnest “The Funeral March” didn’t have the same impact on me back when it was released in 2006, mainly because of the sound: it was too dense/compressed for my ears.

The vinyl release courtesy of 7 Degrees Records has been the perfect occasion for me to re-discover this opus, not only because vinyl always sounds better  but also because it has been remastered. This is a personal take on the Nasum-style of grindcore. It has a lot of variety, it is furious, memorable and last but not least, it has some excellent lead guitar work –  which is definitely one of the highlights of this album.
