Immolation - Dawn of Possession (1991)
This album was further than most others both in heaviness and quality. The brutal, animalistic vocals not narrating the usual blasphemous lyrics, but setting them onto a higher level. From a more phylosophic, individual aspect they criticise religion. Of course this anti-religios view also includes an apocalyptic perspective, but having more sense than the lyrics that most bands wrote in similar topics. "Dawn of Possession" in not a performance of a simple wilder-wannabe band, but a well composed album in all round. And it's overwhelming sound couldn't be confused with any others, this raw brutality became the feature of Immolation and made them a well respected band in the underground scene. Which status they still own until nowadays.
