Staff review by
1996 was a good year for Metal Music, Behemoth released their album Grom, Arch Enemy released "Black Earth", Cannibal Corpse found that George Fisher was better than Chris Barnes and released "Vile", Mortician, after 7 years of demos and EPs, finally released their first Full Length album and called it "Hacked Up For Barbecue", and a little Canadian Band Called Cryptopsy Released a great album called "None So Vile".

Guest review by
Death metal. The musical genre concerned with death, hatred and anguish. The aural paragon of blood, gore and mutilation. Ever since it was created about 20 years ago, death metal left nothing nasty undealt with; from the repulsive scenery of gory violence to the deepest of mental aberrations, it covered pretty much everything vile, both musically and lyrically, with death being the recurring theme. Not all bands though were able to convey the actual horror of death, but some wrote albums that redefined death in an aural way. One of these records is Cryptopsy's None So Vile.

I've got to admit: with the Renaissance painting of John the Baptist's head, I originally thought "None So Vile" were words in Latin

This has grown on me a lot. I like it a lot better than Suffocation for some reason.
The vocalist sounds absolutely deranged and unhinged on this album! Crazy stuff!

That's a tricky one to call for me. Pierced From Within is one of my favourite OSDM albums but this a frickin classic as well.

Coming back to it, I can say I really like it sonically: constant chainsaw sound, real drums completely thrashed, and crazy vocals. But frankly, the music isn't that great. Some good riffs here and there, but super repetitive 4:4 patterns, the solos - despite having melody - don't really go anywhere. Everything is samey for half an hour and only Phobophile stands out thanks to the piano intro. This album isn't necessarilly good, but it's a one of a kind experience.

As for Suffocation, they are far better than this.

Masterfully brutal to this day, a full auto death metal shotgun that keeps blasting and blasting

I love the instrumental performances but the vocals are AWFUL.

Alright, I've listened to this album a couple more times. While the vocals still aren't my favorite they totally fit the album. It's like a punch to face in the best way.
