Only recently split up in 2008, this is a band that's had its ups and downs over the years. I'm not going to post the entire discography because, frankly, some of it's not worth posting. This album, however, is spectacular and most definitely the high point of their short-lived career.
There is a much more modern sound on "Defabricated Process", and that gives way to a vast variety of different genres within Death Metal. The basis is old school, but here and there, we catch glimpses of some brutal and technical overtones, with perhaps the thrashy riff. Not a boring album at all. The production is very good with quite an audible bass, but still filthy enough to satisfy any OSDM fiend.
There are a decent amount of creative riffs and guitar leads, not to mention solos. I haven't been listening to much of anything with solos as of late, so this sort of stuck out to me and I was pleasantly surprised. Don't worry, you're not going to get any blasting 20 minute long solo full of unoriginality and stagnant staleness; the solos on this album are short and sweet, to the point. That's what makes them great. Overall a startlingly impressive effort.
