IMMOLATION: (1991) Dawn of Possession

First of all, Immolation is like no other death metal band you've heard before. They don't sound like Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, or Suffocation. On here, they haven't yet developed their innovative style completely, especially the dissonant riffs and bizarre melodies, but the riffing is still innovative. Its kind of like Morbid Angel's Altars of Madness, an album where they hadn't yet reached their full potential, but still had enough integrity to make them rise above the rest of the bands in the genre.
There is a real emphasis on the low end, especially the vocals which are probably some of the lowest I've ever heard. A few weird riffs pop up here and there, but for the most part, the emphasis is on pure brutality, but done in a really classy way. Many bands have tried to copy Immolation's style, but very few have actually come close to doing it... N. Jacobs
