If I ever had to choose a guitar tone to be my all-time favorite, it would definitely be the one Uffe Cederlund and Alex Hellid use on Entombed's 1990 debut album Left Hand Path. If you've never heard this album or just haven't paid enough attention, the tone is similar to a buzzsaw. Pretty brutal, huh? Sure, why not. But it's not just the guitar tone that makes this album so good.

I didn't enjoy this as much as Clandestine, the songwriting isn't as exciting.

Pretty solid release. I can't say about "best dm album ever" but many records afterwards has taken lot of influences from this.

Its definitely difficult to decide, but this has everything I need from this genre. The guitartone together with the vocals create an unforgettable experience.

Exactly.

This is the reason why this record is the most acclaimed death metal album of 1990(including sales and influences wise).

For me personally, I listened to a ton of death metal in the late '80s and early '90s, this is the best DM record ever made. I will rank my 5 favorites (if I can remember all of them )
1. Entombed - Left hand Path
2. Carcass - Symphonies Of Sickness
3. Pestilence - Consuming Impulse
4. Death - Spiritual Healing
5. Obituary - Cause Of Death

I loved Earache Records back in the day!

Was big into Earache as well. Could find a bunch of their releases as the US Air Force base exchange in Guam for like $10.95... meanwhile was paying $18.98 i town for Roadrunner. (And Bolt Thrower... had to have a friend bring Godflesh back from the US for me.)

Loved the opening track to this, but outside that preferred Clandestine as a whole. Not Top 5 DM material for me. One of those might make my "Top 10" for that era.

I actually just bought a bunch of stuff from Earache the other day, they have really good prices on shirts and physical copies. I bought a Woods of Ypres and Godflesh long sleeve for less than $40 shipped. Most other places I'd expect to pay $25-30 a LS and not to mention an insane shipping fee.

I like this album better than Clandestine, I absolutely love the guitar tone. This might sneak into my Top 5.

BC - Forgot about Bolt Thrower...probably best band name ever at the time...and Godflesh was a part of Earache, that's right!
BW - Guitar tone was the best, side by side with Tommy Victor. Until Markus Seigenhort and Neige came along...
