Honestly don't get the fuss over this record. It has absolutely nothing on Dark Angel, Slayer and Kreator who they're trying to emulate. It's not just the production, it's just not that good.

I've tried to listen the album occasionally during over half a decade with little success in finding it very good. I like the extremeness and rawness, but I think the songs are kind of weak.

So, Spectrum of... Dogshit, maybe a better title?

I did not find too much of my interest either here.

I have called Manowar out for being dogshit on many of their albums. So I did with Morbid Shite - Spectrum of Dogshit; no band escapes the truth of steele

Drums are very punk and and riffs are simple but blazing fast, so with the very cavemen sound it contributes to some pummeling music. It can be very enjoyable, depending on what you're looking for. Much like old Kreator, except these guys could actually keep the timing. The production makes it a little difficult to take it in at first, given how rough it is; at the same time it offers a vibe that's only found on death metal records after its release.

Young Kreator could not keep the timing?! That's harsh.
I like 80s Kreator, always have, I could never get into Morbid Saint, go figure...

Well they kept sliding in tempo a ton to hit the start of beats so I'd say yeah. Less noticeable on Terrible Certainty, but I think Extreme Aggression is their first really tight performance.

Not for me to tell why Morbid Saint ain't your thing I can only speak for myself, and it took a while for me as well cause the production did turn me away several times. It really sits between a well captured demo and a record.
