The familiar Swedish death metal accoutrements are present and correct, and it's pleasing to see that Creeping Flesh have lost none of what we all like so much about them. Heavy groovy riffs, rolling double bass, pounding drums and macabre melodies are all thrown into the songs in the requisite amounts. The songs are well-written, all of the tracks are first-rate songs though, containing the right combination of brutality, catchy riffs, memorable hooks and sinister atmosphere. This is a must for fans of GRAVE, BOLT THROWER and HAIL OF BULLETS.

WHAT THEY SAID ABOUT CREEPING FLESH:
''Creeping Flesh's successful bombardment in the name of all-crushing, old school Death Metal, asking no questions but just offering a couple of instant kills instead, leaving a tick smoke and stench of a rotting flesh behind them. Creeping Flesh is in command. Prepare to follow their rules, in the name of limbs-oozing and severe old school Death Metal.''
''Creeping Flesh are your quintessential death metal band who will appeal to a broad variety of fans ranging from the most extreme of death metal fanatics to those who prefer more old school sounds. Their speed, energy and intricate, well-crafted sound makes for a thoroughly enjoyable listen. Here’s hoping for a full length release soon!''
"Although CREEPING FLESH is not bringing anything new to the table, their music is simply devastating! Death Metal played with conviction and the right attitude!"
"Heavily inspired by bands such as Bolt Thrower, Hail of Bullets, and Jungle Rot... It’s colossally heavy, the half-tempo trudge segments hit every bit as monumentally hard as the blistering thrashes: there’s no respite, and there’s nothing remotely soft or pussy about this. It’s a gloriously brutal assault, violently guttural vocals pitched against thunderous percussion and a roaring barrage of mangled guitar noise..."
" I can easily hear this band opening for Amon Amarth and holding their own. They don’t sound like Amon Amarth but their brand of death metal has the chops to hold the same stage as a band such as Amon Amarth. Know what I mean? I look forward to hearing what Creeping Flesh do as they gain more experience."
"Straight away the chainsaws are revved and the macabre melodies are introduced. Creeping Flesh waste no time in making their intentions known. Heavy riffs are dropped like bombs and a deep growling bellowing is unleashed on an unsuspecting populace. Like all Swedish Death Metallers, Creeping Flesh recognise a good marching groove when they get themselves into one."
