ENTOMBED ‘Monkey Puss (Live in London)’ – Stone’s Metal Pick Of The Day

ENTOMBED – Just this morning, people have been stopping me on the street and asking me, “Stone, what’s your Metal pick of the day?” and my response has been: ENTOMBED. Monkey Puss (Live in London). That simple. I cannot stop listening to this CD lately, there’s something to be said for the way this legendary and influential band from Sweden comes across live. These guys kept it real in their performance and it comes across just so to my ears.

This classic ENTOMBED concert was recorded live at the London Astoria, March 18th, 1992, when ENTOMBED was on their Gods Of Grind Tour. This live CD has it all, my Metal brethren. Raw, no overdubbing, groove laden and fire-fueled with all the Death ‘N Roll that they are so famous for. I can sense both the band and the crowd were feeding off each other, with plenty of who gives a shit attitude… the way a live Metal show is supposed to be like.

My favorite song on here is Evilyn. It’s that Death ‘N Roll that get’s my Metal adrenaline all pumped up! Hell, this entire CD is a favorite of mine, especially when it comes to live recordings of Metal. You surely cannot go wrong by seeking this CD out and letting the live Metal vibes of ENTOMBED run through your veins. You absolutely cannot go wrong here.

This live album just sucks me right in and makes me feel damn good. I crank it up and let my senses digest the that underground live vibe of Metal that I’m hearing from ENTOMBED. No polish. No ballads. No billion dollar producer. This is live Metal from ENTOMBED. There is a live DVD of this concert out there as well, I’ve never owned it. I will own it one day. Metal be thy name.

Monkey Puss (Live in London) was released back in 1998 on Earache Records. ENTOMBED carried the torch valiantly for Metal in the 90’s (when Metal was supposedly beaten down) and they continue their Metal legacy to this day.
