Immolation - Close To A World Below

This is my first ever blog post so I thought I'd get straight to one of my favorite albums. This is Immolation's "Close To A World Below", one of the most crushing death metal albums ever that has already achieved "Classic" status among death metal fans (at least those who know what the fuck they're talking about). Close To A World Below has a sound structure and style that is to be found in very few other places. The riffing is typical of Immolation however atmosphere plays a big part in this album, adding to the overall dark and evil feel that is relentless from start to finish. The drumming, as in just about every other Immolation album, is just as fun to listen to as the guitars and vocals; speaking of vocals Ross Dolan arguably delivers his best work right here by bringing you solid death growls that are nothing but pure evil. All the way from "Didn't you say Jesus was coming?" to the ending apocalyptic riffs of the self-titled track this album gives the listener something that they will be coming back for time and time again. Enjoy.
