It doesn't necessarily have to be different in order to be good. Upcoming Danish deathers Skinned Beyond Recognition is proof of this. The band practice death metal with obvious hints to Skinless, Dying Fetus and to a minor degree also Cannibal Corpse. As you can imagine the music is not particular inventive. The music has a lot of the same slamming groove that are the trademarks of Skinless and Dying Fetus.

This among other things set the band somewhat apart from the typical Danish death metal approach. It's clear that the Danes understand how to merge the brutal with the slower slam parts. Overall this makes the music both catchy and organic. Thanks to the meaty and compact sound the band also comes off as a tight and well oiled unit. Off course it takes quite a bit of work to reach the calibre of Skinless or Dying Fetus but the four Danes are definitely on their way.
