Severed Survival Comments

level   (95/100)
개인적인 생각이지만, 멘탈 장례식보다 더 세련된 올드스쿨 데스메탈
level   (95/100)
이게 89년작이라니..
level   (90/100)
베리 굿
level   (90/100)
What a killer record! They've done really good work, with the authentic OSDM feeling percolating the whole album.
level   (90/100)
고어적이고 잔혹한 데스메탈의 시초가 아닐까 생각한다. 참으로 야만적인 올드스쿨 데스.
level   (90/100)
절로 머리를 흔들게 하는 올드스쿨 명반. 보컬은 말 그대로 목에서 쥐어짜내는 듯 하다.
level   (90/100)
올드스쿨 데스, 그냥 이게답임.
