Genre: Death Metal
Well I noticed there wasn’t any Immolation on this blog yet and, seeing as how they are one of the greatest death metal bands ever, I figured I’d rectify that. For those of you that don’t know, Immolation was formed in 1986 under the name Rigor Mortis and changed it in 1988 because, I’m assuming, there was a speed/thrash metal band from Texas that already had that name. Along with Suffocation and Incantation, they helped define the New York death metal sound, and continue to do so 25 years later. They’re known for their squealing dissonant guitar riffs and complex rhythmic song structures. This is their latest EP released through Scion AV, their signature sound is still in place but has continued to slightly evolve. Oh and it kicks ass.
