level   (90/100)
죽음의 냄새가 스멀스멀 피어오르는 앨범. 올드스쿨 데스의 명반.
level   (70/100)
스웨덴 데스에 필적할 정도로 펑크적 색체가 많이 남아있어서 오히려 이게 데스메탈의 음악적 색체를 해치기도 한다. 그리고 결정적으로 그런 특징으로 인해 그 외의 특징을 다 잡아먹어 버려서 꽤나 지루한 앨범이 되었다.
level   (90/100)
사악함과 음산함을 드러내는데 궂이 사운드가 다채롭거나 화려할 필요는 없다. 군더더기 없는 담백한 악한 사운드. 인트로의 불경스러움이 이 앨범의 순수함에 색채를 더한다. 화려한 수식어가 필요없는, 들려주는 그대로의 데스메탈.
level   (80/100)
celkom jednoduchý, ale podarený debut
level   (95/100)
근데 솔직히 다른 앨범보다 이 앨범이 좀 더 지옥의 울림소리를 보여주지 않았나 싶다. 옛날에 처음 듣고 벌벌 떨었던 기억도 있다.
