Severed Survival Comments

level 10   (95/100)
말그대로 시체를 난도질하는 앨범이다. 메가데스 1,2집 havok 앨범 말고 베이스라인이 이렇게 잘들리는 앨범이 또 있을줄이야..
level 12   (100/100)
말이 필요없는 올드스쿨 데스명작, 89년 당시에 나온 수많은 데스메탈 걸작들 중에서도 단연 돋보이는 구수함과 걸쭉함 그리고 죽음이란 주제의 표현력, 특히 베이스 사운드가 그 날것의 고어한 면을 더욱 부각시키는 데에 있다. 솔직히 사타닉 데스도 좋지만 이런걸 더 좋아한다.

이게 89년작이라니..
level 7   (90/100)
베리 굿
level 9   (90/100)
What a killer record! They've done really good work, with the authentic OSDM feeling percolating the whole album.
level 17   (90/100)
고어적이고 잔혹한 데스메탈의 시초가 아닐까 생각한다. 참으로 야만적인 올드스쿨 데스.
level 12   (90/100)
절로 머리를 흔들게 하는 올드스쿨 명반. 보컬은 말 그대로 목에서 쥐어짜내는 듯 하다.
level 2   (90/100)
올드스쿨 데스, 그냥 이게답임.
