Altars Of Madness
Their first LP released in '89. This is a pure death metal album
filled with satanic lyrics, brutal music and a lot of guitars solo's, yet for
it's time (and still) it is very original. It has a kind of an old school
sound, David Vincent's vocals aren't as deep as later but still good.
Excellent guitar work from Azagthoth and Brunelle, very creative, at
sometimes unleashed brutality and speed, and sometimes cool mid tempo parts,
all that accompanied with great solos. The production here is o.k., no
complaints from me. This is a great debut, very promising - this album has
became an important milestone to the metal scene and in my opinion is in the
status of a real classic. Note - on the CD there are 4 bonus tracks that
don't appear on the original tape.
