  "Cause of Death" and "Slowly We Rot" it are best albums that the when Obituary issued. Unfeigned jewel Death Metal!!!

  Great album. A Death Metal gem. Crushing guitar riffs, uncommon vocals in death metal, mouthwatering solos and some sick lyrics. What do you want more?

I'm sure there might be some sick lyrics but he could also be singing about kittens, seeing as no one has ever seen John Tardy's lyrics and he's damn hard to understand when singing

Right, he's hard to understand, but the lyrics on Chopped In Half slay:
Chopped in half

Feel the blood spill from your mouth
With rotting ways comes destiny
Feel the soul taking over, bleed!

Rating: 8 Guitar work on this album is extremely tight, though the riffs can sound a bit repetitive on repeated listens. I plan to listen to 'Slowly we rot' in a more focussed manner as well. It's weird that I only managed to stat listening to this band 3 months ago...

  This is their best release so far.

Rating: 8 The best of this album, are the lyrics, so poetic, so much of feeling, and of course understandable

I hope this is sarcasm.


As for the album it's ok but like all Obituary those vocals get tired really quickly.


Though this is probably my favourite Obituary album.

Leaving the sarcasm, John Tardy is one of my favorite death metal vocalists of all time. His voice is so evil and full of violence (especially on Slowly We Rot) the first time it was like a punch in the face. I still enjoy it.

Rating: 6 Only marginally less boring than their debut. I don't get what the big deal with this album - or band - is...

I've never got the appeal of them either. Some people just like plodding death metal I guess.

Plodding is a good way to describe this. They seem to have a (inordinately?) huge fan-base, at least based on the amount of shirts that I see around festivals, mostly with this album as the design.

  This (and Slowly We Rot) is actually one of the few early death metal releases I prefer. Way better than the likes of early stuff by Autopsy, Asphyx, Deicide, etc.
God Buster 鬼 - 24.02.2015 at 08:31  
  Obituary are definitely not much similar to other death metal bands and they have their own trademark and completely different sound....Actually this album is PUNKY. I don't call this pure Death Metal.

...And you'd be wrong about that obviously.

Never argued it's impact.

It just didn't do it for me. It's kinda ploddy. Obituary have always sound a bit stiff after Slowly We Rot. Gimme Autopsy any day.

Really enjoy it, along with Slowly We Rot and The End Complete.
