This is an awesome album, but the album cover is probably the silliest one I've ever seen!

The rawness of this album's sound and Tardy's incomprehensible vocals make this my favourite Obituary record so far. 'Cause of Death' is a very good album, but i find that this particular style of production suits the nature of obituary's vocals perfectly.

Pretty amazing and influential for death metal.
By blood... Resurrection?
By body... Redemption?
By God... Domination?
By Pilate... Crucifixion!

Pretty amazing and influential for death metal.

I am not sure how influential this particular release was.
But for me this is best Obituary, together with Cause of Death (I used to prefer Slowly, but today I like them both more or less equally much).
The title track and Intoxicated stand out.
