This is the remastered version
of the best Death Metal album of all time. Nothing more to add. I want
to keep this review short becouse this album is from me the absolute
bible of Death Metal the way it should always be played, vocals are
absolutely inhuman, maybe the best ever recorded in ANY Death Metal
record, the sound is absolutely dark, brooding, abysmally obscure, yet
crunchy and havy as a load of rotting meat. If you start listening to
this CD (which was also released a few years ago by Earache/Necrosis
as a split with CADAVER), in a chronological order starting with the
demo number one, you can easily identify a huge CARCASS spine, which
is actually the embryo of what later developed in CARCASS’s unique style
(if you can get ahold of CARCASS’s “Flesh Ripping Sonic Torment”
demo you understand what I mean) of gore soaked pathologism. What later
developed from this demo is a unique, sincere, untamed essence of underground
spirit and sincere AUTOPSY laden artwork, this masterpiece took form
of “Dark Recollections”, also blessed by an unique, incredible
cover artwork that can make any other Seagrave work shit in its pants).
Beyond this CD, nobody can go, what spills from every second of its
length is beyond words, it might have been played by young musicians
but all of these musicians have later ripped this sound to create band
each of which have paved an unique style in the intricate world of underground
Death Metal. And the very spirit, the very class of each of them was
avident tenfold in this album. A masterpiece beyond time and words.
No words to praise it the right way. Absolute number one.
