One of The Best Death Metal Albums Ever Made

I will never forget the first time that I have ever heard this album. It blew me away by it's power, speed, and heaviness. This album helped define the modern sound of Death Metal. This album is on the top 5 of my most favourite albums ever made. My favourite song on this album is Effigy of the Forgotten.
