Denmark's Undergang released their debut Indhentet af Døden ("overtaken by death") last year to no fanfare. Perhaps that's because it was first released on a 100 cassette run, and then only on a vinyl run of 500. It has finally been brought out on CD, and it's sure to be noticed.
Why? What sets it apart from the dozens (or hundreds) of other OSDM releases coming out this year? Well, the most obvious distinction is that the lyrics are in their native Danish. That would be just about enough to get me on board right there. But more importantly, their musical approach is distinct.
The Verdict: This is one of my favorite OSDM releases I've heard this year. I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
