Untouchable Death Metal - 100%

Thrasher666, December 3rd, 2003

Wow. Angelcorpse is an amazing band all around. This album is, in my opinion, their best work. I'll start off by saying Pete Helmkamp is one of the sickest, ugliest, and harshest vokillists in the metal underground. His vocals are high, completely comprehensible, and harsh as FUCK. I have never heard someone sing with such intensity since Xul from Kult ov Azazel.His lyrics are also very intelligent, and very blasphemous (those 2 adjectives won't suprise anyone who has read Pete's philosophy books). The guitar work on this album is stunning. Brutal riffs ala Altars of Madness era Morbid Angel, thrashy, speedy, and awesome. The solos are very clean sounding, and the mix on this album is so great you can hear the solo and everything else going on at the same time perfectly. The solos remind me of a less sloppy version of Slayer (which isn't anything new for a death metal band). John Longstreth, who now drums for Skinless, does an excellent job on this cd. Very fast, lots of blasts and double bass that isn't overused, and intense.

This album has it all for any fan of extreme metal: Blasphemous lyrics, harsh-as-hell high pitched screams, brutal guitar work, intense solos, killer and fast drum work, and an original sounding band. Any fan of speed, thrash, black or death metal, GET THIS ALBUM!
