Murder Squad  


This quartet of Swedish deathsters, all serving time in other well-known groups, banded together to pay tribute to a band that no doubt influenced each of them individually, that band being the death/doom/grind/gore band Autopsy. Originally Murder Squad was nothing more than purely a Autopsy cover band, but several years ago they shifted to writing original songs, and so their goal was to release an album that sounds like Autopsy. And that's exactly what is delivered on Unsane, Insane And Mentally Deranged -- early 90's-inspired grindy death metal. There are a few soundalikes to their current bands (most notably Entombed, due to Uffe Cederlund's unmistakable guitar sound), but again Autopsy is the obvious soundalike here. Those into Autopsy, or old-school Swedish death metal, will be quite satisfied with Unsane. A followup, Ravenous, Murderous, featuring guest vocals from none other than Autopsy mainman Chris Reifert, has since been released.
