"Memories of my future Welcome to my church" Pierced From Within, after their Full-Length debut album "Effigy Of The Forgotten" and "Breeding The Spawn" Suffocation released a Masterpiece, a godly Album named "Pierced From Within". Enough of ass kissing, this album indeed is great but let's stop for a minute and lets analyze why's that.

No comments for this? Odd.

Such a good album, they bass heavy riffs practically break my house down.

The guitar and bass tone on this album is insane. It's so heavy (I hate using that term to describe music) but gaddam. One release that has stood the test of time for me.

Yeah, this one never gets old. Like you said, the lowwer tunes are fucking insane here. Also... Holy shit if this album doesn't have one of the best openers of all time. Just that song along makes you say "fuck it, must listen to the whole thing".

I think Effigy of the Forgotten is probably better overall but this still crushes hard and is basically exactly how death metal should sound if you're gonna play it this way... Pretty much metal beyond words

Any way I can buy a physical copy or a high-quality download of this album without shelling out $40+?

I find Morbid Angel's sound is too thin for it to really impact me. This album is produced really well.

I find Morbid Angel's sound is too thin for it to really impact me. This album is produced really well.

It had decent production for it's day but Scott Burns made such an impact back in the late 80's. People talk about which bands defined death metal and who was the most influential but really you don't have to look much further than that guy. MA aside, there wasn't a lot of American DM he didn't produce in the late 80's through to mid 90's.

Pierced is a classic example of that signature bass heavy tone but in the end, I think he overdid it. Everything started to sound the same. For me AoM (and Blessed Are The Sick) are great because they sound very different to a lot of the stuff available at the time.

Listening to this is a Brutal Onslaught too my ears! It seems like anything I listen to after this sounds tame! This is mainly due to the mightily heavy guitar tone and the overall production, the vocals are my favourite thing about the album, it's hard to find vocals that sound this Brutal and at the same time understandable.

The truth is I never used to like this album all that much, and originally I gave it a rating of 6, because it was way more complex and technical than the death metal I usually listen to, but what it lacks in melody it makes up for in brutality and technicality.

I love the ultra-heavy and juicy guitar tone. Otherwise, the album hasn't really convinced me yet. Overall a 7 or a 6 at the moment. It might still grow on me

This is a great album to begin with if your venturing into brutal death metal, it took me a while to get into it, I still don't think much to the songwriting but I love the sound

I've always really struggled to get into this band. I get that it's suppost to sound brutal, but it just sounds muddy and one-dimensional to me, which makes for a relatively unmemorable experience IMO.

There are some fairly tasty riffs on this thing and it does do a good job of being super heavy, but that's about it really.
