"If you are into death metal, definitely listen to this album. it was released around 1990 but still is one of my favorites. there other album-serpent temptation is also a good album but sounds more raw. there is a digipak cd available right now that has both albums. and to the critics who wrote bad reviews about this album and don't even listen to metal, next time don't bother, you're just taking up space. i don't have any interest in listening to the other incubus, but i won't waste my time writing a bad review for a band i don't even listen to."
This is intense death/thrash metal with christian overtones

"my guess is that those fans of MTV incubus have never even heard this band, much less read the lyrics enough to make a qualified statement about how bad they think "beyond the unknown" is. in case it wasn't clear after 15 other reviews, this is a death-thrash metal band that formed in 1986. during this time, many bands didn't bother to copyright their names, and unfortunately this is one of them. this is why the band changed their name to "incubus rage" and then "opprobrium" when they reformed in the late 90s. about "beyond the unknown", it's one of the true classic albums in death/thrash metal history. nuclear blast records sucks, and their cheap ways resulted in an album that with a better production and distribution could've really become something big. what i think makes incubus so great is their hyperspeed brand of thash metal. beyond the unknown contains catchy guitar playing (thanks to the frantic soloing and songwriting style of frances howard), as well as some of the best thrash drumming of the era (courtesy of frances' brother, moyses). if you like sepultura, hypnosia, whiplash, morbid angel, etc, this album will only add a new level of intensity to your collection!ps-it's official, frances and moyses howard are two of the most talented musicians ever!"
This Is Amazing Death Metal! old school.

"I have the 16 Track Digipack with "Beyond the unknown" & "Serpent Temptation".I think it is available here. Anyway this is Death / Trash 1990's style, detuned and dirty. The other band called Incubus came later. i don't know with the styles in America it doesn't take much to shove corporate Rock down throat's so i can't blame this band in changing their name.If your a fan of Death metal especially of the Florida variant i would recommend this fine album. it is available in Europe as a digipack but it has no extra's like credits etc.., Nuclear blast is the label."
