This explains why the aforementioned great works were able to be created by individuals who then created abominations


Blessed... was written after Abominations  :D :D

Sorry, couldn't help it.

That is true, and it is why Immolation have always consistently produced good albums, but their lack of symbolic communication causes them to consistently fall short of greatness.


I think they are great, but I see your point. One thing Immolation has always needed is more connection to abstraction in their concept- they have already reached it plenty of times in the music itself. Their "no-frills" CD booklets point to this as well. Semi-unrelated, I did manage to get a copy of the limited "Shadows in the Light" LP- that is the nicest single edition of their work.
 
BTW- Legion is an unrealized suicide letter, which is why it proves to be the high-water mark in Deicide's bloated career (save for the first album- that is also classic).

This is very true in their case. The best death metal albums have always been closely tied to concepts, like classical symphonies are.

Deicide - Legion
Morbid Angel - Blessed Are the Sick
Incantation - Onward to Golgotha
Asphyx - Asphyx
Carnage - Dark Recollections
Infester - To the Depths, In Degradation

and a few others
