Swedish Death Metal at its Core.

""Nothing But Death Remains" is the only EDGE OF SANITY album that is Pure Death Metal, but it manages to be progressive as well on some twisted way, just listen to the epic opener "Tales..." it stars off with some atmospheric keyboard sampling, then the blastbeasts start and the guitars provide really heavy riffing with some insane approach.
The best track is by far "Human Aberration" with those pummeling rhythmic riffs and fast paced drums, and end on a spectacular note with "Immortal Souls" without losing pace form the preceding tracks.
This album is crucial early '90's Death Metal."
Great early Swedish death metal - one unforgivable mastering

"This and its successor "Unorthodox" are my two favorite Edge of Sanity albums. They have the basic early Swedish sound, very Entombed-like, but with unique melodic and progressive touches. After "Unorthodox" they started going in some other, different directions.
This is a very solid album, not quite in the top ten from that time and place, but close. However, this CD issue has an obnoxious mastering glitch that I can't understand why it wasn't fixed. Track 2 ("Human Aberration") is the most obvious problem - the volume varies quite a bit in the first half of the song. It's almost like it was mastered at two different volumes and then the two were stitched together. It should have been an easy fix by anyone with sound editing software but somehow went out like this instead. There may be other instances of it - I noticed a very brief dip in track 5 as well, but if I hadn't heard it much more clearly in track 2 I may not have noticed it in the later song.
I still feel the CD is worth the money. The music is, after all, excellent, and the mastering problem is only bad enough to be annoying in one song. For that one, I think I'm going to spend a little time in my .wav editing program this afternoon."
