What more can i say about this awesome band? metal fans will be absolutely floored, and with good reason. Perhaps it has the crushing brutality of "Slowly we Rot" and John Tardy's vocals, oh man!! absolutely brutal and which to this day still melt the ears of even the most hardened death metal fans. In addition to the vocals and the sheer heaviness of this album, the best ingredient which made Obituary stand out are the killer riffs, insane drumming, bass lines. Now I am not saying that previous albums were not good,but with this album speed, groove, and devastating riffs are balanced nicely. And this pattern continues throughout the album. If you have an insatiable need for speed, then you would do well to listen this amazing album, Of course if you're like me, then you will completely listen to the album in its entirety, All I can tell you now, my dear reader, is this: If you happen to be one of the lucky few enlightened death metal enthusiasts in this world, but have not yet explored the grisly wonders of Obituary, do so now and waste not another minute of your decaying, rotting existence on this Earth and go buy ALL of their albums.... NOW!
This is fuckin Epic !!
