Here’s a little gem from way back in 1992, the year after many consider to be one of the best years of metal. That’s up for debate but what isn’t is the crushing magnitude of this album.

Taking the typical American style of death metal, except the speed, and adding in a heaping dose of Sabbath like, doom plodding, Cianide made a heavy album that is crushing in it’s weight. Now, this formula has been done plenty since and I’m sure Cianide wasn’t the first to try this formula, but it was far less commonplace in 1992 and left room for exploration and I’m betting this band could out metal a lot of modern bands jumping on the doom/death band wagon.
