2 stars This album is important in music... Here a genre was born: Death Metal.

Ok, we have some precedent bands, like Celtic Frost and Venom... But the definition of the genre came with this album, both musically and lyrically. The death metal here is really primitive, and far from the aspects that would make this band a legend in extreme music, and also in the prog world... Here you will find not the complexitiy of later albums of the 90's like "Symbolic" and "The Sound of Perseverance". Only true and not too elaborated death metal...

So if you are not a death metal fan, you will find nothing intersting here... Maybe you should try later albums. But I wish to say some words about Chuck Schuldiner... What a great musical mind, and what a deep loss for the music. The cancer took his life some years ago... But his legacy is still here. He gave the name to a genre... And he made the first album of this kind. That's not easy to find... And years later, he made this genre grow, and redefinited it, making it really brilliant... A great mind, of course.

Conclusion: only for death metal fans... If you are not in this kind of music, you can easily avoid this album. Because you will not find anything interesting here... This album is really far from the prog world.

My personal rating: ***
