Wisconsin Death Metal

Like all too many of the better bands of the old underground, Viogression's music has largely been forgotten due to inadequate distribution (and doing business with a rip-off label), the lack of a timely, quality followup, and the simple misfortune to live outside of scene hotbeds in Florida, New York and Sweden.  However, their debut full-length remains one of the more interesting efforts to emerge from the second generation of American death metal.  Perhaps best understood as a hybrid of first album Obituary and Autopsy's Severed Survival, albeit with a more ambitious, expansive compositional style than their influences (which often lends an epic feel even to relatively short songs, though occasionally also to momentary lapses of focus).  Simple in approach, esoteric in impact.
