This is my first CC cd and i was expecting some hardcore death metal, (due to recommendations by various sites) and before i heard the cd i read the lyrics. They where great, my favourites are [explicit lyrics]… From track 10 and the most of track 9 (and they complain about Eminem). HA HA! The cd is good but sometimes it was to slow, (if you like slower stuff check out Sepultura’s Choas A.D), and Chris Barnes vocals sometimes sounded like ‘’snake style hissing”. (If unbearable vocals is your thing check out female singers like My Ruin etc). My only other complaint is that the vocals were sometimes out of time, maybe thats on purpose but it didn’t sound right to me. My track choices are tracks 3, 5 and 7 but to be fair i haven’t listened to this cd many times and i’m sure it will grow on me. Amazon readers have recommended Tomb of the Mutillated by CC as a better album as well as other bands such as Cryptopsy, Meshuggah and Dillinger Escape Plan, (none of which i’ve heard properly so i can’t recommend any). P.S -To the people who’ve rated this album as 1 star because its offensive to them and because they class death metal as noise instead of music. This is unfair – you can’t rate an album because of that, just don;t rate it and leave it. I don’t exactly go to your Britney Spears and your J-Lo sites and rate their albums 1 star because i don’t like that type of music!
