This is the pinnacle of brutal death metal. It's about as good as it gets. Suffocation may have found the sound, but this is without a doubt one of the best metal records of all time. Songwriting is ridiculous. Almost as if you were to hear what he is screaming, surprisingly better than most of Brutal Death Metal lyrics. Lord Worm is/was an English teacher anyway, so well-written lyrics all over this album.
The Exorcist III sample might be one of the Death Metal most iconic samples. Then None So Vile starts, brutally, relentlessly, unreasonably fast and disgusting. Lord Worm's vocals are my favorite in Metal, but even if you don't like them, you gotta acknowledge how good they are. Drums are stupidly out of this world. Riffs are so good you forget this record would push you to the ground and eat your flesh. Just check out Phobophile, all this is present there, with a great/iconic piano intro.
None So Vile marks a spot so high on BDM mountain, I doubt any band ever will climb that high. My favorite tracks: Crown Of Thorns, Phobophile, Slit Your Gut, Benedictine Convulsions.
