Few bands can be credited with creating a legacy, however, legendary New York based extreme metal outfit SUFFOCATION have done just that. For 20 years now SUFFOCATION have been creating music that has become the very standard by which we judge all things extreme.

Their fusion of technicality, groove and sheer unrelenting brutality has been imitated but never quite duplicated. Milestone ... Read more in Amazon's Suffocation Store

Human Waste was Suffocation's debut mini-album, and points the way to the brutal death metal that the band would become famous for, though inevitably with the slightly sloppier playing and muddy production one would expect from any new band. While this mini-album is stuffed with great tracks (and bolstered by the addition of 2 demo tracks on this Relapse re-issue) it only gets an average score as so many of the tracks were re-recorded in a superior manner by the band later in their career. Of the 8 songs on this mini-album 5 would be redone for their debut album Effigy of the Forgotten, 1 on 3rd album Pierced From Within, and 1 on their 1998 mini-album Despise the Sun - leaving only one song (the title track) as an exclusive. As such, despite containing some great tracks, this release is really for Suffocation completists only.

Suffocation are responsible for creating the sub genre "brutal death metal" which many other bands have tried to imitate over the years. Human waste was there debut mini album or ep recorded in 1990 and it wears it's age with pride. Nothing at that time could match the sheer brutality/agression and technicality Suffocation was producing. I initialy bought this album because I prefer the original version of Syntheticaly Revived to the one found on "Pierced From Within" and because I had read some realy positive reviews. After one listen of this album I was blown away and knew I had purchased something special.The overall sound of Human Waste in my opinion is alot more raw and a little less technical/chaotic than their later releases but the brutality and agression is still there especialy in the vocals! Every track is killer and even the demos are superior. If you havent heard this album and you like death metal you should give this a listen and be prepared to be mesmerized. Check out their other albums aswell they are solid. Anyone who gives this album less than 4 stars does not have enough knowledge or good taste in this genre of music.. This is a Death Metal classic debut album!!

I bought the original Relapse Records picture disc E.P. of "Human Waste" when it first came out as it was limited to 1000 copies worldwide but didn't play it too often as the sound quality was not as good as the regular vinyl. I recently saw this original issue cd on Amazon and had to buy it as I adore Suffocation and this E.P. It is an amazing piece of Death Metal. There is also a bonus track ("Human Waste") on the cd version that is not on the original vinyl releases. The E.P. sounds really great on cd and is as brutal as Suffocation can be, in short a truly worthwhile purchase. In todays Death Metal world this E.P. still stands up and is as timeless as ever. Suffocation have remained true to their roots by producing Death Metal masterpiece after Death Metal Masterpiece and deserve to be huge. If you love Death Metal you need this E.P.

Sadly no longer with us, probably the best technical death metal band ever, Suffocation started life with this EP.
Obviously not as well produced as later offerings, it nonetheless captures why Suffocation were so good - hard to follow, but strangely catchy riffs, nice growly vocals, cool solos and pounding drumming with inteligence.
A lot of these tracks have been re-done on later albums:- "Infecting The Crypts" was done again on "Effigy Of The Forgotten", along with Jesus Wept", and "Synthetically Revived" was redone on "Pierced From Within". Although they were redone, that doesn't mean that they weren't good in the first place, just better arrangements really.
A nice taster of what was to come, although I don't think that people expected that to be "Effigy Of The Forgotten"....

A worthwhile purchase. 12 Jun 2005
By Sepulhead - Published on
Format: Audio CD
First of all, the information: This is a remastered/remixed version of the original "Human Waste" EP, though I believe it is the same remaster that came out a few years ago (2000?) for another Relapse reissue. I am a bit confused myself because my old copy was dated 2000 but I swear this one sounds better...I could be imagining it.
Anyway, this version has slightly improved cover artwork, a different general layout for the back cover etc, an actual booklet including photo and lyrics (including the until now unknown lyrics to the title track) and two demo tracks from the Reincremation demo from 1990: "Involuntary Slaughter," and "Reincremation". The demo tracks are cool to hear, the quality is poor which is what you would expect, the sound of the demo material reminds me of early 'Schizophrenia" era sepultura material.

That was what you would need to know having already owned the album and wanting to find out the differences. Now on to the album itself:

"Human Waste" is essential old school death metal. The first album ever released on the now huge Relapse Records, this paved the way for most of the brutal death metal we know and love today and also served as a prelude to Suffocation's genre defining classic "Effigy of the Forgotten". The entire album only contains one song not available on any other suffocation release: the title track, "Human Waste". It's more than worth it though, because Human Waste is top notch Suffocation. Half the album later appeared on "Effigy of the Forgotten" (infecting the crypts, jesus wept, mass obliteration), while the other two tracks were rerecorded for the "Pierced from Within" (synthetically revived) and "Despise the Sun" (catatonia) albums. For a hardcore suffocation fan this is a must have because the versions are so different from the later recordings. This is just a raw old school classic that can't be missed.

People who are new to suffocation would probably be better off starting with "Effigy of the Forgotten" or "Pierced from Within," Suffocation's two absolute classics, but chances are that before long new fans will see this album as equally essential to their death metal collection.

Listen and weep... 27 Oct 1999
By Rainer Wilhelm - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is, quite simply, exactly how death meatl should sound. This is THE best production EVER!! Far from clean, it basically captures the essence the best, fastest and most BRUTAL DM-songs ever written! The cover is crude, basic, BRILLIANT and reflects exactly what you can expect sonically!

Musically, this is 5 star death metal 5 Jun 2002
By Muddy Moe - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Having bought and absolutely loved Effigy of the Forgotten and Pierced from Within, I bought Human Waste mostly because I found a cheap copy. I had heard it had rougher production (which is true, but not a bad thing at all) and that it was short (also true), so I didn't expect much.
I was impressed! I like it as much as Effigy and Pierced, which are widely regarded as their two best albums. The production is a bit reverby, but actually quite fine. The songwriting is very brutal and if this album were by any other death metal band it would probably be that band's premier release. Frank Mullen's growl is a bit rougher and more difficult to understand on this release than on future releases. But he's still my favorite death growler by far. I don't slavishly adore every death metal band by any means, but so far I love everything I've heard Suffocation do.
I've deducted a star, however, because all of the songs on Human Waste except for the title track appear on future Suffocation releases. Infecting The Crypts, Mass Obliteration, and Jesus Wept appear on Effigy of the Forgotten. This album is well worth picking up used, however. If you're new to the band, get Effigy and Pierced and then consider getting Human Waste.

It will eat your soul 29 Dec 2005
By Rotting Johnny - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Human Waste belongs in any death metal fan's catalog. It is an onslaught of savage brutality and technical genius with one of the most INSANE vocal assaults in the history of recorded sound.

Not recommended for fans of Atreyu, Bleeding Through, Kittie, As I Lay Dying and other generic mallcore fodder, as they may soil their adult diapers.

Definitely worth the money 4 Aug 2004
By Joseph D. Losch - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Ok, some of you may be like me and thinking "Why would I pay $12.99 (what I paid) for a cd with only 6 songs?" I gotta say, because it is that damn good. 3 of the songs are redone for "Effigy of the Forgotten", one redone for "Pierced From Within" and one more redone for "Despise the Sun", and the original demo they did for Roadrunner. I must say...with the exception of "Syntheticaly Revived" and "Catatonia" these originals sound better. Listening to "Effigy" I find myself hating the vocal quality. I am sure most of you have noticed just how garbled Frank Mullen sounds (similar to a Sega Genesis game) and the drums sound muffled. But, these make up for that. I am almost wishing they did all of "Effigy" in this vein. All the songs on here are worth the money. So, when you see this in a store and see the price tag, don't think about how each song costs $2.165 a piece, think how much better the redoes could have been!
