When you think of the early innovators of Death Metal, names like Possessed, Death, Master, Morbid Angel, and Deicide are probably what come to mind. And rightly so, they all had a huge impact on the genre, and are still credible, durable, and enjoyable today. But one album, which might pass by some people in favor of say, 'Altars of Madness' or 'Scream Bloody Gore,' was released in 1990 by band called Nocturnus from the home of many of the early Death Metal acts: Tampa, Florida.

It's all good. I don't expect you to keep track of every facet of my life.


True enough. Unlike Edgar (Bad English) who actually does keep track of you and your whereabouts.

I hope it involves watching one in the shower.


Be my guest, but I don't think either me or Edgar (Bad English) are up for that in case of Lex, hahaha.

This is pretty overrated, I think. Old school Death Metal with keyboards is a nice and novel idea, but the mostly unmemorable riffs - with a few honourable exceptions - leave something to be desired, and the constant, mediocre shredding feels out of place much of the time. Personally, I found their second album much more appealing.

You should probably remove it from your Space Metal list then

If none of those riffs sound memorable to you, you must have a pretty bad memory.

I never said that, even if I think most of them aren't. My memory may not be the best, but I am perfectly capable of remembering, say, most Death riffs quite well.

Don't get me wrong, I still think think it's a decent album, and its place on that list is earned mostly by the atmosphere it creates. I would give it a 7.5, but I can't, and am rounding it down because I think the average rating is too high.

Tbh, 7.5 is probably what I would give it. I find the concept of this album more interesting than the album itself. I rarely seem to finish it when I've given it plays.
