Staff review by

The fourth Obituary album, This time obituary changed a little bit their style, they experimented a lot with some effects, different (more clean) vocals, and longer riffs.

"Don't Care" is a great song the best one if you ask me, some thrashy Riffs and drum beats, cool solos and usual bass-lines, the actual great thing in Don't Care is the vocals, finally we can understand what Jhon Tardy is saying (is that good? I don't know exactly), after some minutes the song changes it's pulse and some great new riffs are shown. We can also highlight "Redefine" not for it's greatness but for it's rareness, this is a weird song, Obituary playing with intro effects? And with an oddly alternative riff?, anyway, the song is ok it has some amazing "stops" and the greatest drumming in World Demise for sure, and in the minute 2:13 the song gets a great new beat, violent and finally some old school elements (speed, drumming, guitar solo, etc.)

Rating: 8 A very experimental album by obituary's standards, 'World Demise' keeps the crunchy guitar riffs and vile vocals but is taken away from the classical death-cum-sludge-metal genre the band were lumped in so frequently. This album has some of their best songs, including the self explanatory 'Don't care' and unique closer 'kill for me'. I don't know if anyone else agrees, but this is pretty much their last decent album.
