1999 Relapse Records :: Reviewed by rofreason on 2005-08-11

To many, Relapse Records are known for their heaby hitters (Amorphis, Neurosis), to others, their grind (Nasum, Agoraphobic Nosebleed). Well, to me, they're known as the label that doesn't seem to discriminate, signing bands from all fields, the only common ground being that they all excel in their particular medium. All bands of the spectrum are represented on this sampler, ranging from new tracks by the heavies to other more obscure acts in the Relapse catalog. Judging from the tracks selected, this year is going to be killer for these guys. The new Neurosis track is so damn thick is runs out of my headphones, Today is the Day continue to annihilate, and even Bongzilla look to dish a pile a whoop-ass to unwary listeners. Of course, we also get some tracks from bands that are proven killers, Soilent Green, Nile and The Dillinger Escape Plan all turning in a few from their latest releases. Definitely something for everyone here, and charging like only $2 for this, it's worth it just to hear the love 'em or hate 'em Mortician take on Celtic Frost.
