brutal, Brutal.. BRUTAL!!! Just listen "Slowly we Rot" as song and you can be satisfied, but the whole album is a Blast. I was totally insane the first time that i Listened this one. "Gates of Hell" has an incredible insane vocals... Terrific album. If you are into Death Metal, this one is a must for you. 95/100 OBITUARY RULES!!!!!!!!!!!

The rules of death metal were still being written in 1989, and those goofy pot-smoking kids in Obituary were partly responsible. The band's debut has that standard-issue Scott Burns/Morrisound production, but is absolutely dominated by John Tardy's roaring, ralphing vocals, which are mixed in well above the rest of the music and drenched in echo. This is somewhat ironic, because much of the time, he's not actually using words. He's just vocalizing, making agonized sounds to fit the overall mood of the music. There's not a lot of bass to be heard, so the guitars have kind of a buzzy sound, but this is mainly noticeable in hindsight. In '89, it must have sounded absolutely crushing.
