Millennium is the second full-length album from American death metal band Monstrosity, which contains ten songs:

(1) Fatal Millennium (4:35)
(2) Devious Instinct (4:02)
(3) Manic (3:29)
(4) Dream Messiah (4:25)
(5) Fragments of Resolution (5:07)
(6) Manipulation Strain (4:01)
(7) Slaves and Masters (3:13)
(8) Mirrors of Reason (3:34)
(9) Stormwinds (4:58)
(10) Seize of Change (2:46)

Millennium was the last Monstrosity album to feature original vocalist George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher as he went on to replace Chris Barnes as vocalist for Cannibal Corpse, another great American death metal band. While listening to this album I noticed how similar musically it was to Cannibal Corpse's 1996 album Vile, which was the first Cannibal Corpse album to feature George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher on vocals.

One thing I would like to mention to you is that inside the booklet for the album the order of the lyrics for "Stormwinds" and "Seize of Change" are reversed, and on the middle pages of the booklet the title of the sixth track "Manipulation Strain" is the same size as the lyrics, making it look like the lyrics for "Fragments of Resolution" are very long even though they're not as the lyrics for "Fragments of Resolution" end with the words "the ties are cut with resolutions....knife".

I was lucky enough to be able to get all of Monstrosity's five studio albums and the 2CD compilation Enslaving the Masses when I did because they seem to be very rare collector's items now, so I didn't want to miss out on collecting the works of such a great yet underrated band as Monstrosity. Overall, I would very highly recommend this band, particularly Millennium (which I'm reviewing here) and their first full-length album Imperial Doom if you are able to get your hands on them.

Format: Audio CD
Monstrosity's second CD refines the raw talent shown on they're debut "Imperial doom" and sharpens it to unparrelled levels. 'Fatal Millenium' kicks off the CD, and right away it is clear that that is the case with a serating and cutting edge guitar sound from relatively unknown axeman Jason Morgan. 'Devious Instinct' is the second song on the album and is one of my long time Monstrosity favourites. Excessive, but controlled blast beating from Lee Harrison, an urgent vocal from Corpse'grinder, and a generous bass sound is enough to give you the shivers. Again; Jason Morgan's command of the guitar is aptly demonstrated by some really excellent harmonics.

Another highlight is the slow n' steady 'Fragments of resolution' with it's very slow protruding baseline:- which is quite a different proposition to the usual Monstrosity servings. The album is a classic, and they're best album to date as far as I'm concerned. You really have to wonder why Corpsegrinder left the band after this album to go join Cannibal Corpse:- who in my opinion have never been as good as these guys in any musical aspect. Still, three albums on and the music is still top draw across the board and with a new album speculated to be coming out in the near future, my anticipations are currently running high indeed.

Production, songwriting and execution are all surefire high points. This is certainly one of my very favourite death metal albums out there and is at least a little easier to get hold of than the chronically out of print 'Imperial doom'. 'Millenium' was originally released on Nuclear Blast:- nowadays, the distributor is Conquest Music and I believe that the album is directly available from them if you are after a relatively new copy. Not nearly enough, like most old school death metal there needs to be a more concerted effort to reissue albums in quanity to bring down the absurd prices some of them command.

'Millenium' rules however, it's a simple as that!...,
