"Left Hand Path" is the debut studio album by
Swedish death metal band Entombed, released on 4 June 1990 by Earache Records.
The title of the album refers to the Left-Hand Path belief system. Guitarist
Alex Hellid found the term in Anton LaVey's book The Satanic Bible. The album
is known for defining the style of Swedish death metal by being the first
studio album to use the "buzzsaw" guitar tone. The tone was created
by heavily detuned electric guitars (To B) used with a maxed out Boss HM-2
Heavy Metal Pedal and the DS-1 Distortion pedal into a Peavey amp. The
originator of this guitar tone was Nihilist guitarist Leif "Leffe"
Cuzner. It was ranked No. 82 on Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Metal Albums of
