Rating: 6 At arout 3:25 on A Suburb To Hell, is he using something to alter his voice, or can he do that himself?

Rating: 9 Can't believe this album is rated so low, I consider this one a classic Death Metal album, probably one of the best albums of the whole Swedish Death metal movement. Really, I'm in awe...

obviously not one of the best album in swedish death metal, I think "Cladestine" is best in 1991 era. But "Of Darkness" album so fuckin' great

I don't think so. And I am willing to bet that they became fans of the band at earliest with Theli.

Beyond Sanctorium's the earliest one I gave a good rating to. I'm not much of a death metal fan.

Yeah, they became fans with their later works, when Therion became less good for me.
On the other hand: with the releases of Carcass, Dismember, Pungent Stench, Pestilence , Entombed, Morbid Angel (and a lot more incredible stuff) this one maybe stayed under the radar for some people

  I never tried early Therion because the symphonic stuff gave me ebola. I should try their dm albums, I'm pretty sure I can't like them less than the others. I guess I'll start with this.

Start here and listen to Beyind Sanctorum as well which is also death metal although with some non-death metal elements but few enough to call it a death metal album.
You can venture with caution with Symphony Masses but after that one well... You wont like anything else. I dig a lot of Therion actually. Both old and new. Well, not NEW new. I stopped caring after Gothic Kabbalah.

Okay thanks for the tips. Might even try one of the symphonic ones. See if my mind changed with time.
