Energetic Disassembly Reviews

Reviewer :  level 9   90/100

The first true Progressive Metal band of all time

Manic technical insanity. There was nothing even remotely close to the progressive technicality going on in metal (or anywhere else aside from Jazz) at the time of this release. So far ahead of it's time that it can still be called an impressive anomaly of musical prowess today.

The music on display here is 5 star material. There are just a few unfortunate problems that really drag it down; first of all, the vocalist isn't great. Especially where every other member is an absolute virtuoso at their instrument, the weak vocalist really stands out. To his credit, he does write some interesting lyrics, especially for the time. The guitar and drum tones are also pretty bad, although the bass sounds great (it's audible).

Regardless, it's probably this album that spawned hyper technical metal, and pushed the genre to even further extremes without simply playing heavier. Groundbreaking and influential, but more importantly still an amazingly entertaining record to this day.

2집보단 덜 프로그레시브하고 스래쉬적 잔재가 많이 남아 있어 듣기 편하다
level 16   90/100
시대를 초월했다. 하지만 대중의 귀는 이들의 사운드를 이해하기에는 부족했다.
level 9   85/100
This is an overdone Progressive Thrash Metal album. That is, the techniques, time signature changes, and ripping proggy guitars make the songs overly progressive.
level 4   90/100
테크니컬 차력쇼를 어색하지 않게 이식한 점에선 1집이 더 낫다
level 20   90/100
škaredý obal, ale na dobu vydania albumu je to veľmi dobrý technický progresívny heavy thrash metal
