Nightmares tend to be awfully vivid. You are glad when you wake up, just as you are about to drop through the trap of the gallows, or having a knife thrust into your body. Maim provides one of those nightmares in musical form, but not one to let you wake up that easily. Their music is true Swedish death metal, so foul, doomy and gritty, every rotation on the turntable is another thrust of the knife. A horror from which you cannot wake up, you can only cling to the hope that with dawn comes death!
