How are the Morpheus Descends albums beyond "Horror Infinity"; worth a purchase?  

I assume you mean beyond "Ritual of Infinity" and not beyond "The Horror of the Truth" which is their most recent recording.  (I also assume you juxtaposed the album names thanks to the MONSTROSITY song ;)).

Anyway, they are recommended if you happen across them. For the most part they are stylistically consistent and of similar quality.

I just saw them perform last night.  

Was that in Minneapolis by chance?

$5 is a great bargain for AVERSE SEFIRA.

I don't know if you omitted DEAD CAN DANCE but their albums through "Aion" are essential.  They have had me transfixed since I discovered them.

however, i wouldn't call them "definitive" even for the finnish death metal scene, after all they formed from the split of demigod.

Untrue.  ADRAMELECH formed in 1991 prior to the release of the DEMIGOD full-length in 1992, around which time they released a demo and EP.

Can someone explain to me the obsession with GOLEM?  The first album sounds *exactly* like CARCASS "Necroticism" to me, right down to the mannerisms.  Do I need to hear it again?

Also, how can ADRAMELECH be rightfully called latecomers having released their first demo in 1992?

You didn't like "Across The Open Sea"? I thought that was their last good one.  As for the demos, if you have the reissue of "Where No Life Dwells" you should have the bulk of them on there. In any case, get the reissue which contains both their second and third full-length albums together.

To be totally honest I've never heard "Across the Open Sea."  :-[  My recommendation was based on what I have heard plus the fact that I never see overt praise for that disc.  Since they are together are on the 2-on-1 I guess it doesn't matter ultimately if it is recommended or not  ;D

Early German speed/power metal.  Their overall emphasis is on the IRON MAIDEN and not the SLAYER.

Is there any Unleashed album after Where No Life Dwells that's worth aquiring?  I haven't heard anything beyond that album but I have heard the following two albums sound very familiar to Where No Life Dwells.  I know for a fact that the new albums are horrible, which is why I am wondering if there are any other Unleashed albums of worth besides their first.

Shadows from the Deep and stop there.
Their demos are also worth hearing as they sound much darker and more brooding than any of the album material.

I will also share the "Spring of Recovery" EP on the neoclassical hub for interested parties.

I have the ADRAMELECH EP and demo available if anyone is interested in tape dubs/CDR copies.

I've only heard it in passing, and it seemed even more self-absorbed and masturbatory than the first album, which may or may not prove to be a remarkable thing.  It is still one of the very few death metal releases I have looked forward to purchasing in the last 1.5-2 years, so I imagine I will pick it up eventually.

The first one (if one is able to find it) is recommended as above average death metal in the indulgent mid-90s style.

I'm not much of a fan myself.  I've really only heard a few bands though (Deeds of Flesh, Death of Millions etc).  Overall it's just redundant music in a vastly over bloated genre.

DEEDS OF FLESH are from Los Angeles.

I don't conisder Destruction to be leftist for example.

...but KREATOR most definitely makes up for them.

Yeah there were some very similar aesthetics going on there.  I don't even think either band had heard of the other during the time though.  I guess it makes sense that they were aesthetically similar though because they shared a lot of the same influences and such.  From what I've read the only other metal band Sepultura knew of at the time was Overdose.  

Wagner "Antichrist" of SARCO F A G O was in the first line-up of SEPULTURA, so that explains the similarity.  I think he formed SARCO F A G O shortly after leaving them.
