Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars "No Canonization" is a 7" EP release by Swedish death metal act Carbonized. The EP was released through Thrash Records in 1990. "No Canonization" was recorded in January 1990 at Sunlight Studios and mixed and produced by Tomas Skogsberg.

So with the information given above a "so far so good" is in order. No one would judge you if you said "typical old school Swedish death metal". And to some extent that is right. The buzzsaw guitar tone, the simple powerful riffing, the slightly punked drumming and the brutal growls are all there and accounted for. Carbonized are a bit different than your average old school Swedish death metal act though and that´s already quite evident on this early release. The tracks are oddly structured and especially the bass playing is what I would call experimental. The drums too at times.

There are only 3 tracks on the 9:51 minutes long EP, and there´s just enough time to get to know Carbonized before it´s over. The sound quality is raw and not much better than stripped down demo sound quality. While it´s obvious that the band have many innovative ideas it´s also obvious that their playing skills are a bit imature at this point. So there are both good and not so good things to say about "No Canonization" and taking all things into account a 2.5 star (50%) rating is warranted.
