"...More Sombre Than Life" (Self-produced)
Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton
Imagine: SLAYER meets IRON MAIDEN meets DAVID BOWIE. The Claymords' CD, "...More Sombre Than Life," is an intriguing collection of tunes that at one moment sounds like death metal, the next like grindcore. What sets them apart, however, is their above-average songwriting ability and vocals that range from sounding like Tom Araya to David Bowie to Pete Steele. Unique, indeed.
THE CLAYMORDS: Personnel: Nils Ivar Martila, guitar and vocals; Rune Bakka Sunde, bass and vocals; Bjarne Olsen, guitar; Tormod Haraldsen, drums.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
