Instant Dandruff Removal (Obituary: Slowly We Rot)


Dirty, grungy & heavy as fook! Had this blasting at full tilt during me commute to work this morning & it sure has put me in a fooking great frame of mind. Though released 20 years ago, this debut platter from Florida's mightiest death metal exponents still packs a punch as decisive as a right hook from a young Mike Tyson.

The first time yer ears are assaulted by John Tardy's Satan's bowel movement vocals, ye'll swear ye've just been flushed down Hade's toilet. The crunching guitar attack (especially Allen West's filthy, slightly unorthodox solos) will have ye reaching fer that volume knob. The rhythm section is no slouch either & ye'll see why Obituary are considered one of the tightest live acts around.

Me knows me has raved bout this lot before & have posted their other LPs fer download, but this debut outing is still one of the landmark releases in the death metal scene.

ps: Fooking brilliant this is, so please take the time to download it. Look forward to reading yer thoughts on this album. Have a great bangin' weekend!

I like how the solo finds a place for itself.

praxidice: Did you just check the vid out & or did you download the album? If the latter, well fooking done (unlike lazy ass Tinesh)!

Yes, spot on. The solos are not yer typical widdly twiddly look-at-me wanker-supremo guitar wielding. That gives this debut a slightly more rough n ready feel.

However, there are plenty of axe-slinger histrionics on the two albums which Allen West do not appear on - 2nd effort Cause of Death & latest offering Xecutioner's Return (both also posted here fer download - pls click labels to search).

Glad ye liked this.
