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".

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.

Honestly I wouldn't listen to Boxcar's advice... If you think you need to listen to this again, listen to it seriously, not as background music. The jazz influence and complex riffing is some of the best in all of bdm, and even though LW is a love or hate vocalist, this album is pretty much exactly what brutal death should sound like.

If you don't like it, you don't like it - no big deal. But if you don't like brutal death metal at all then it's not a surprise if you can't get into this, being that it's one of the genre's pioneering albums (along with Suffocation and Dying Fetus).


Well, I love both DF and Suffocation so I might check out None So Vile out again over the weekend. Normally though I have to let things grow on me first so another listen wouldn't do any harm .

I think with this album, you either get it or you don't get it.

Kind of a bullshit observation to be honest. You could just say that about any album. And early Cryptopsy isn't so much about "getting it" or not, but about being able to digest Lord Worm's vocals.

Allow me to apologize to Lord Worm, because I've been addicted to this in the last week. His vocals aren't the best, yet they completely suit the music.
Definitely one of top five DM albums of all time. Great tracks, especially the solo on Dead And Dripping, which is purely orgasmic.
Do they have any other albums in the same vein?

In that case, man is only air as well.

This has grown into my favourite BDM album ever. Short and sweet. The amount of sheer brutality crushes my skull in.

Okay, this album's grown on me very much. After like the fourth or fifth listen, the vocals just get silly. Like on Dead and Dripping:
DUH DUH DUH DUH DUUUUHHHH! DUH DUH DUH DUH DUUUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHH!
Just taken the time to notice, however, that the lyrics fucking suck.
Other than that, I enjoy it.

I think "Lord Worm" is a genius ......
My god, he's one of the strongest and most technical death metal vocals in there! It is unique...

"Flo Mounier" is not simply beating the drum over ... Flo Mounier" is also in my opinion one of the best techniques and the best drummer in the world ...

Excellent album, and certainly Cryptopsy's best. The instrumentation on this is supreme. It was brilliant enough on the band's debut but somehow it sounds even better on here. The bass work powers through on 'Benedictine convulsion', the guitar work proves to be well-executed on 'Slit your guts' and 'Dead and dripping', and the eerie yet solid 'Phobophile' (which is my personal favourite song of the band) is extremely well written and performed.

True. Too bad everything else pales in comparison, though.

This might get a higher rating from me in the future. I'll have to listen to it a few more times. The instrumentation was insane, warped, twisted, chaotic, fast... some pretty cool shit. The vocals... well, the guy has range, and he can do interesting things with his vocals, it's just that his low guttural that he uses for the majority of the album just sounds like a old dying bloodhound's howl. I could probably get over it eventually, but for now it just sounds bad.

Lord Worm is a legend. He epitomises the concept that vocals in a band like this should become part of the sound itself, rather than conveying pointless lyrics.

still shitty.

Well,you need to listen Temple of knowledge...Kataklysm album.There is some very weak vocals.

I'll never forget the time I met Lord Worm and during a short conversation he felt the top of my head with his hand like a crane and said I had an interesting head. Was a unique experience that makes me laugh inside to this day.

If being able to understand what death metal vocalists are saying is integral to it being good, then I guess there's only about 3 good death metal bands.

I had this album in my dads car due to it not having an AUX cable, and I listened to it probably 40 times in the week I had to drive it.


Really solid album. Lots of bangers, no real filler but a few tracks are not up to par. Still though, it's a great release.
