A landmark in Death Metal history
on 3 November 2003
If you're a serious death metal fan, chances are you'll already own this album. If not, shame on you because you certainly should. To this day, few bands of the genre can get close to Suffocation in their pomp. The riffs and soloing of twin guitarists Terry Hobbs and Doug Cerrito has to be heard to believed, and as for the vocals of Frank Mullen, with the possible exception of Lord Worm, I don't think anyone has ever been more extreme. Effigy Of The Forgotten is without doubt the high point of Suffocation's career which was always pretty impressive anyway and it is a 24 carat Death Metal classic. If bands like Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel or the very excellent Dying Fetus float your boat, you have no excuse for not owning a copy of this cracking album.
