A quarter of a century of a band's history and not one single misstep. And yet the Death Metal Veterans Immolation excelled themselves by creating the album "Close to a world below" in 2000: the title song with its diabolic riffing provides goose bumps.

Must have

Immolation return after their stunning “Failures for Gods” in many respects where they left off; showing everyone else how aggressive death metal can be.

The Paul Orofino production is so dense that it almost has its own gravitational pull and though slightly sharper than “Failures” its still a love it or hate it proposition; it does lend the band a unique sound and compliments their dissonant and murky riffing perfectly.

Believe it or not this album is even more brutal than their last. The drums are faster and more intense, containing an absloute wealth of ideas jam-packed into each song (try figuring out “Unpardonable Sin”), and the guitars’ off kilter solos really do sound unearthly.

Listening to “Furthest from the Truth” and its waves of blast ridden HATE, it is clear that Immolation are as passionate as ever in their loathing of religion and Ross Dolan delivers his lyrics with such spite, even in his chilling monotone.

Many death metal bands are technical and fast and “brutal”, but few are as INTENSE as Immolation. Their treacle thick sound, the speed and the pure wrath make for captivating albums that remind one why they ever got into extreme metal in the first place. This is death metal in excelsis.
