Fun! But c'mon it's getting dated now,
This review is from: Effigy of the Forgotten (Audio CD)
Bought this album this year and i have mixed opinions on this album. Prior to buying this album i read a review that said that these were the best death metal band ever and that this album was their best. I have to say that i was dissapointed. First of all the production isn't fantastic. The guitars are very fuzzy and have no real defenition, and neither do the majority of the riffs for that matter. It seems as though they have made the riffs with only one note but chugged at a different speed each time, no joke. However there are the bits when they use more of the guitar to create complicated and insane riffs.
The real good point of this album is the drums which are fantastic. Full of variation and the all important clicky bass drum. Vocal wise this album is very good also, the style on this album is deep, really deep, were not talking wussy nile here where his voice is struggling to go that low we are talking gutteral and nasty. They also have very good vocal arrangements. And the bass....who cares.
So overall this album is decent but dont buy it now. Its very dated.
