If speed metal bands interpreted hardcore punk in a heavy metal way, Swedish death metal interpreted heavy metal in a punk hardcore way, fusing the mix of melodic and chromatic progressions of bands like Discharge with the fills and structure of heavy metal. Nihilist essentially continued in Entombed, sans bassist Hedlund who went on to form Unleashed, and used this songwriting strategy to great advantage.
