Convulse is one of those bands that's capable of being completely unknown and legendary at the same time. Unknown to almost the entire known population of the Milky Way, legendary among the few appreciators of the Finnish (Nokia) Death metal scene. World Without God is their gem.

It's '92 when World Without God is released and although I'm not sure of the exact release date, I'm pretty sure I spent most of the particular day pooping my diapers, delicately placing my meals everywhere but in my mouth and generally annoying the crap out of my parents in as many different ways as possible. Good times.

The story is that it's one of the greatest death metal albums from the 90's. That's it. I don't see how anyone who likes death metal could dislike this.

Quite similar to Death's albums always praised by people but those really liked and bought it are really handful.
To me it sounds super light due to the bad bass performance, drums are slow and monotonous. Please let us know what is good in there, I really didn't hear anything impressive.

If you hate this album, you must hate good quality death metal anyway. Try another genre.

Maybe in Singapore, but certainly not in Europe or the US. Loads of people liked it (and , nop, not only metal journalists) and bought the crap out out of it. Death had loads of sold out tours at the time here in Europe. Mmmmm, they were so unliked that they played in front of more than 60,000 people at Dynamo Open Air.

Singapore and Malaysia are next to each other, probably due to the density of the air we breath is very close that made us having similar taste in music. I was surprised to know that you did help me to search someone who has similar taste to me. Thanks for your effort.

I am very interested to know him, may I know what is his nickname at Metalstorm ?

3 million ? Where did you get the figure ? Total sales of all albums ? In one year or the total in the past 30 years ?
You receive a pay check at USD 1,000 everyday is a lot, if you received a total of USD 1,000 in the past 10 years is very little. Be Specific.

Do your own research.

you are an incredible idiot on a massive scale. It's blatantly clear I meant lifetime sales, and it's widely considered that Death are the biggest selling death metal band of all time. Any metal band selling 3 million albums, especially an extreme metal one, is an enormous amount of albums shifted. It doesn't matter when they were sold, it's still 3 million at the end of the day.

History says:

Quote:
"Death has sold over three million albums worldwide, and one million in the United States (excluding the sales before the Nielsen SoundScan era). The group is considered the best-selling death metal band on a global level."


Once again it's shows you have absolutely no idea of the things you are talking about and pulling facts out of thin air. It's clear to me that you will shift and change what you say to suit your meaning though as you are a cowardly forum dweller with no interest in fact and sensible discussion

Hold !
Cannibal Corpse is the one hold the record in the sales of extreme metal.
Show me the proof and stop calling people idiot, people know who is the real idiot if there is no proof provided by you. Please, Death's sales are always not that good.

Quote:

You have provided no proof so surely that makes you an idiot? I have shown you more proof than you have. Please show me proof that CC have sold more records than Death. (from what I can see CC might be the biggest selling death metal band in the US, not the world, unlike Death. The sales here wouldn't put it past Death's even if the first 2 albums did sell a million each,).

Quote:
Death's sales are always not that good


Based on what? You keep saying this but have offered no proof that this is true. Anecdotal evidence is irrelevant when it comes to album sales. Please show proof which invalidates all the other proof out there, such as this. which shows that albums sold as well, or nearly as well, as any other death metal album in the US alone; and bear in mind that link is 13 years old so their sales would be even more now and furthermore those sales figures are based on the Nielsen SoundScan system which didn't start recording figures until 1991, so it would have no records of Death prior to that (which would have included the debut of 3 albums).

More importantly, please give me examples which highlight how Death are not a well-selling band compared to other death metal bands, and please explain to me how a band can sell 3 million albums and be considered to be only selling a "handful." Bear in mind their last album was made over 15 years ago. If 3 million albums is a "handful" then what isn't a "handful" with regard to extreme metal? How many albums would a band need to shift to be considered well selling? They had 7 albums, so you could say that's over 400,000 sales per album. Doesn't sound like a "handful" to me. It also doesn't matter when those albums were sold. By your logic sales should only count within a certain time frame. That means we should discount all sales by the Beatles, Elvis etc. after bands split / members died. If a band is considered good enough it will continue to sell albums after they exist. That's the mark of a band people like. Please tell why that is "illogical." Your analogy is a strawman because people in jobs get paid by the hour, or a set salary as long as they continue to work. Album's are sold as individual units independent of the band's activities. I would not get paid at the end of the universe because I will not be able to work at the end of the universe, however, in theory, Death albums could sell on indefinitely. If nonsensical examples like that is the best you can come up with then I don't think my argument is at any risk.


Truth be told nothing else needs to be said, but it's interesting to see what other fact-twisting drivel you can come up with

You still don't understand even when I explain it to you. He called that album "relaxo-gothic" just to show you how ridiculous it was to tag an album by going for the atmosphere it creates. He was making fun of you for calling it dark ambient when it's clearly not dark ambient musically. I could tag this album "Mean Metal" following your logic. Do you finally get it? Can you now stop talking about Tiamat?

You're free to have whatever opinion on any album, just stop commenting on things you don't understand, genres you don't know, or inventing facts to sound interesting. </offtopic>

In other words, even as someone who's never been very keen on on OSDM, I have to say this album slays.

Albums like this generally benefit from remasters, this is no exception since the original production sucked (as typical with most early death metal albums).

In this case the original production is what made the album sooooooo obscure and excellent. The remastered version took that and made it sound just like a decent album.

I agree that remasters benefit some albums like Human or ITP, but not in this.
