IMMOLATION: (1996) Here In After

This album was recorded after a hiatus of about 5 years. Immolation had a lot of time to grow in that period, and you can really hear the development of new ideas, especially the dissonant riffs, but its pretty clear that they weren't entirely comfortable with this new style yet. The production is pretty shoddy, and really lacks the low end and punch of their debut, but does capture the feeling of hallowness and despair that they tried to create. Weird timing signatures pop up everywhere, as the death vocals shake your fillings loose. Its a good album, but I'd reccommend their first album or their new masterpiece, Unholy Cult, over this. Still, if you want innovative death metal, this is not a bad place to look...N. Jacobs
