'eaten back to life' is often regarded as one of the best death metal albums of all time. At its time of release it was one of the most brutal albums of all time and even 14 years on, it's still pretty extreme. Also, this is one of the first albums to play death metal as something completely separate to thrash so it's an important album in the history of extreme metal. Personally though, I think that it is completely over-rated.

This isn't a bad album at all,its just that the vocals are near enough incomprehensible(as is any other CC album) and the guitar work is all over the place. BUt the song titles are aceXD

There's 2 or 3 fillers that bring this album down a bit, but when it's good, it's great! The album sounds very much like some very unpleasant B-movie in musical form, and never more so than on "Shredded Humans". Which is my fave CC song, and an amazing way to kick off the album! It's a little too patchy to be a classic, but in it's best moments, it's primal and visceral death/thrash at it's finest. xD

Hell yeah! Although my favorite is the newer stuff, I got into CC with Kill and Evicersation Plague, so I just have a soft spot for those two, but EBTL and WS are fucking amazing.

Man, this is the most insane shit I've ever heard. Sick lyrics, insane guitars, weird vocals and quick songs, with the album near 30 min.

Best songs: Shredded Humans, A Skull Full Of Maggots and Buried In The Backyard.

I have just listened to this album, time changes everything...it might be good in 1990, but it definitely sounds very amatuerish in 2014.

I am confused...CC sounds more like Brutal Death Metal rather than Death Metal !

Really? I've just started my appreciation of their disco, but their albums sound like straightforward death metal. Not brutal... Of course, I guess it's brutal in the word's original sense.

EBTL is very catchy compared to the albums that come after it!

It's been some time for me, but I don't recall ever thinking this was "brutal" in the sense of the term "brutal death metal". I'll have to revisit it to be sure before I comment further...
