Released: May 2003
Label: Relapse Records
Swedish grindcore masters Nasum expand the borders of their often maligned genre here, firing off 1- and 2-minute blasts of fully formed and strangely melodic hybrids of death metal and hardcore at light-speed. Universally praised by meal magazines since it appeared in 2003, Helvete, which translates as "hell" in Swedish, is an excellent place to start for newcomers to the long standing band, as well as non-believers in grindcore itself. While the entire album is excellent for junior's bedtime, you want to play him "Just Another Hog" "Doombringer" and "We Curse You All" first.
