Cause of Death (Reissue) Obituary MP3 Download
I don't like death metal when its all speed and brutality and no substance or atmosphere. And I like a bit of doom metal but sometimes I wish it was mixed with some fast sections. It's no wonder then that I love Obituary's Cause of Death.

The fastest, most intense album from the 80s Thrash Metal movement by what many consider the best Thrash Metal band.

The album is pure ferocity and is also pretty much perfect from start to finish.

Angel of Death is the most notorious track. It was pretty controversial in its time, portraying the atrocities committed by Nazi physician Josef Mengele in a fairly neutral way (although lyrics such as "pathetic, harmless victims left to die" and "pray for the end of your wide awake nightmare" do suggest some sympathy with the victims). The line "angel of death flying free" seems quite poignant, pointing to and contrasting with the Jewish exodus story (where the angel of… Read more
