Obituary - Slowly We Rot

1989 Roadrunner Records :: Reviewed by rofreason on 2005-07-08

Where it all began. Recorded on only 8 tracks, Slowly We Rot came into my life on the same vinyl buying trip as Sepultura's Beneath the Remains. While BTR was my thrash fix, Obituary became the essence of death metal for me. All the requisites are here, the guitar, the monster double bass, but it was really John Tardy's truly disgusting vocals which MADE this album. More guttaral than on later albums, Tardy became the epitome of death metal vocals on this, one of the true legendary albums of metal. A must have for any DM fan.
