AFTER EARTH: Before It Awakes - EP
They call this Swedish death metal and compare the band with legends like AMON AMARTH, UNLEASHED, ENTOMBED and DISMEMBER. Well, then I must have got the wrong record then, because that's not exactly what I can hear on this EP. To me it sounds more like some kind of melodic groove/death metal, and much more modern than any of those old bands.
AFTER EARTH was founded in Skövde, Sweden in 2017. And during 2018 and early 2019 they developed their own sound. Their first 5-track EP, "Before It Awakes", is the result of that. It seems like it's just available digitally.

During 2018 and early 2019 they developed their own sound.
Late 2019, the band started the recording process of the first EP "Before It Awakes" as well as starting to perform live in Skövde as well as other nearby towns. Then Covid -19 hit, which put a temporary stop to the band's live performances. During this time the focus instead shifted towards completing the EP, which was independently released digitally mid-September, 2020-09-18.
