Originally released in 2004, Necrophagist’s Epitaph threw a death punch to progressive death metal, and altered it for good, setting the bar incredibly high. If you like your kick drums as fast and triggered as they can possibly be and guitars thrashing your face off, then this is your prometheus. FFO Cannibal Corpse, Nile, Morbid Angel et al. This is the first time Epitaph has been made available on vinyl since it’s original release.
8/10 gbar Customer review, 6th March 2017
Necrophagist graced the earth with an ingenious technical masterpiece. The album shows the incredible creativity and craftsmanship of the band. It is surprisingly melodic, often breaking into brilliant, sweet motifs. The drumming is fast, providing the driving force of the album. As expected of a technical death metal album, the rhythmic motifs are complex, spanning several notes. It is a richly textured album, one that took several listening sessions for me to truly appreciate. It is a richly rewarding experience, a celebration of creativity and craftsmanship.
