Incubus - Serpent Temptation (1988)

   On the side of Death, Incubus was the second band which caused sensation with their impetously aggressive music in the late '80s.
   Unlike other similar bands that time, they didn't concentrate only to perform the rawest brutality with their music, but also cared a lot about the quality. During their short active period, which produced only 2 full-lenght albums, they piled up so a lot of awesome and catchy themes, which would be enough for twice more albums in this style. Their music was more complex than what other thrash or early death metal bands played, and this way they were one of the first ones who involved technical themes into extreme music. There is not a boring moment to find on this album, everything's well composed, and the wild thrashing parts are like only serving a short break to get ready some exciting or unexpected change. The quality of their music was ahead of their time, bands with similarly complex ambitions were spreading later and not only in extreme undergound, but on the main metal scene too.
