4.0 out of 5 stars Signs of progression... 18 Feb 2006
By Jane Aland VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
As great an album as `The End Complete' was it just couldn't match up to `Cause Of Death', and Obituary seemed to have realised that they are never going to better what they have already achieved, with 4th album `World Demise' at last showing signs of the band progressing. It's still 95% Obituary of old, with the bands classic sound intact and heavy as ever, but uniquely amongst their discography it shows them at least trying to do something different, with the inclusion of a number of samples - notably the shuddering earthquakes and propeller effects in the title track and the tribal rhythms of Kill For Me - while the album artwork sees the band ditching the old rather cartoony heavy metal evil imagery for the horrors of reality. Sadly however the one thing that lets this album down is the quality of the songs themselves, as despite the odd exception most of the tracks are somewhat weaker than those of previous Obituary albums, with many of the riffs failing to remain long in the memory (ironically probably the best track is the bonus track Killing Victims Found). It all sounds excellent though thanks to the Scott Burns production, and the searing guitars and John Tardy's typically immense vocal roars ensure that this is still require listening for any self respecting death metal fan. `World Demise' is ultimately a weaker album than the 3 that preceded it, and can be seen as another step in the steady decline of the fortunes of one of the world's best death metal bands, but thanks to the bands attempts to progress this still sounds fresh today and remains their sole slight deviation from the formula they created on `Slowly We Rot'. Not their best album by any means - but still a damn good one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Trying so hard... 17 July 2006
By Tom
Format:Audio CD
Obituary were my number one outfit back in the day. First it was Slowly we Rot. Then came the monster that was 'Cause of Death.' After this the Obies let themselves downa bit with 'End Complete', but not much, they just never lived up to the genius that was the combined brilliance of their first 2 albums.

Then came World Demise.

This album see's the Obies trying so hard to branch out of their death metal abode and try for the cross over market. Unfortuneatly, it just didn't gel as well as it could have, if it could have at all. No amount of shotgun samples, hip hop intros or explosive effects were going to mask the fact that the actual songs, the music, was lacking in memorable creativity. Its a shame, as the band are very accomplished musicians, and the music itself is played perfectly, its just the fact its not very interesting. The single 'Don't Care' was quite straight down the line Obituary, with mid paced crushing guitars, and John Tardy's gutteral growl with strained chorus. But that, for me, was about it. There are a few other god riffs on here, but they are used so sparingly, usually as openers, that you forget them pretty quickly. I bought this on Vinyl, so I don't know about the cd, but on the end of mine there is some traditional African Water music ?? Why? I'm all into eclectic musical tastes, but it was just the wrong move for this album.

As I have said on other Obituary reviews, they deserve to be up there in the top 5 bands most likely to have shaped the death metal genre, but they missed the mark with World Demise.

5.0 out of 5 stars The world is a very dark place 17 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
I seem to be in a rather small minority, but this is my favourite Obituary album.

The secret lies in structure - of the songs themselves and of the album as a whole. Tardy (John) sounds as agonised and unintelligible as he ever did on previous releases, and the guitar is equally heavy (although perhaps lacking a bit of dirt). The difference is that the songs seem to go somewhere. Whereas previous albums (to my humble ear) were a load of great ideas joined randomly in a line, the songs here are just that - songs!

Settled mostly in the slow-to-mid tempo range, the album truly gives the impression that the band is constantly tormented by nightmares, the dog has eaten all their money and food, and that their dark world is bereft of any hope or light of any kind.

Some fans might miss the fast breaks partially present in previous releases, but there are plenty of other bands who can play fast. Speed could not convey the sort of heaviness and misery on offer here, and the whole album is the better for its absence.

Oddly, because the album's mood is so depressed, it actually revitalises and uplifts, as you know there are at least 5 people in the world who are worse off than you. Rarely has a CD cover so fitted its contents, and Final Thoughts is genius.

4.0 out of 5 stars Top notch Death Metal! 18 Nov 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Obituary's greatest album and possibly the best death metal release of all time. I would recommend it to a new starter or a seasoned deathster(although the latter will probably already own it). Another thing that sets it apart from others in the genre is that the lyrics do not simply blather about satan. An excellent CD.
