It was a monumental task to follow up the death metal classic that was Mental Funeral and unfortunately Acts of the Unspeakable (1992) does not better that aforementioned groundbreaker. Now that's not to say that this album is all bad but one must accept that it does come a firm third in terms of quality i.e. Mental Funeral, Severed Survival and then Acts of the Unspeakable (in that order). I remember eagerly awaiting this release at the time and I don't think Autopsy knew just how popular (or appreciated) they were back then, in an admittedly crowded but still very underground death metal scene. Viewing the album as a whole, it's hard not to see this record as Autopsy experimenting a bit in terms of song structures. Lyrically, the depravity continues unabated but musically many of the tracks boast increasingly strange and unfamiliar arrangements.

The death/doom hybrid, perfected on Mental Funeral, is expanded further on this release but it is far less refined than its illustrious predecessor. One will not find any of the charm and vitality of Severed Survival (1989) or indeed the ambition and musicianship of Mental Funeral (1991). Put simply, the songs are just not as good. The slower doom metal parts do not sit as comfortably with the bludgeoning death grind as they should. That said, if you're looking for some of Autopsy's shortest and fastest songs, they are to be found here. In addition, Chris Reifert produces probably his most `death metal' vocal performance on this album, mixed of course with his usual plethora of top class grunts and squeals. Standout tracks include the title track and `Your Rotting Face' with truly some of the most perverse lyrics that Reifert has ever wretched forth.

However it is perhaps because of the extras that this album is worth picking up.
