NOISEM: Agony Defined: CD

Sweet fucking mercy. Why hasn’t anyone else nailed this so hard? Equal parts early Slayer, Scott Burns Florida death metal circa ‘89-‘92, and first-wave Swedish Sunlight Studios metal, all executed with such genuine accuracy and baffling talent (late-teens to early-twenties… fuuuck) that even the most jaded metal folks will be duly impressed. I could go on all day, but I won’t. If you dig pre-studio trickery, dark, brutal metal, go and get this shit immediately.
