Desultory  


Desultory was part of the first wave of Swedish death metal bands, alongside Entombed, Dismember, and others. Into Eternity, their Metal Blade debut following a lesser-known EP release, is standard for the genre, energetic and forceful, straddling the line between the more brutal American death style and the melodic Gothenburg variety. Though not earthshattering, it's a fine album and a solid bet for death fans. By most accounts, the followup, Bitterness, is more of the same, but 1996's Swallow The Snake is quite a different animal, dropping the death vocals (and, for the most part, death metal itself), for a more heavy rock sound likened by some to Soundgarden. Having been dropped by Metal Blade, they disappeared, but the three members from the Snake album recruited a new fourth member and, continuing the progression from that last album, continued on as the heavy/stoner metal act Zebulon. Finally, in early 2009, the band announced that they were back together.
