It is a masterpiece and rivals many other classics, but it isn't the best
In that case, man is only air as well.

... thundercunt reviews dismember - like an ever flowing stream

yo, this band right here be from sweden and this shit called a debut, meaning it they first one, which make all tha following thing imma say about it even more impressive
just sit back and relax fo a minute, a brotha just wanna take you through an analasis

first off, it aint none a that high-tech mumbo jumbo like is so poplar now wit all tha triggered drums and tha fifty layer guitars and stuff
shit be old school, like i talkin jesus on a dinosaur kinda old school
goes way back and delivers the goods you expect from this kinda old school swedish death metal

second, this debut got this thang called atmosphere, you dig
like when you listen you aint just goin all ya ya, i get it the music be good and shit
no, you sit back and think goddayum, this shit be ill
like it just aint about the instruments bein good, it be more about how the album sound in your soul, way deep inside you

third, those melodical parts aint in there just fo show
they tell too
they tell you how this shit spose ta be, brotha
it sound like real talk from a group of real honest dudes, hard motherfuckas
east side kinda homies who aint here to mess about

seriously, i just sayin listen to how this debut flows
it be they first time writin this shit all down and it sound profeshonal
that right there be the mark of true talent
it aint often tha gitar sound so crunchy, but dayum these ones do sound crunchy

take sum a that punk shit from the olden days and give it some evil atmosphere
tune down the gitars and yell into the mike like a raging loon and you have this masterpiece

Good album, but most certainly inferior to LHP as it doesn't improve on it in any way and doesn't sound quite as good. Surprised LHP is rated lower than this.

For a debut this is absolutely brilliant. Album really brings to mind the best things about Swedish DM, and more. I love the eeriness of "Override of the Overture", "Dismembered" and especially "In Death's Sleep". The solos here also stand out for me quite a bit.

Personally, I like it more than Left Hand Path. High heresy I'm well aware, but whereas Left Hand Path had a slew of slower moments, Like An Ever Flowing Stream never lets up for too long. I like my metal when it's blitzkrieg blast beat assault.

Pfff. Give me Entombed over this any day.

Some catchy songs but like somebody said before, it has too many fillers.
Crackhead Megadeth reigns supreme.

Left Hand Path is godlike in front of this. It has some good moments like "Override of the Overture", "Dismembered" and "In Death's Sleep". I also liked the two last bonus tracks.
