This is The End Complete!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"HOLY SH*T! I cannot explain how much this album means to me. I bought The End Complete over 2 years ago and I still listen to it almost every day. This album defines all that real death metal should be. John Tardy is really an underrated vocalist. He has one of the most original growls and voices in all of death metal. Allen West and Trever Peres, what a great combination of guitars. Don Tardy is an underrated drummer, he is really good compared with most death metal drummers. Every song on this album is heavy as Hell and played perfectly. This is one of the best produced albums ever, complementary of Scott Burns who produced most death metal in the 80s and 90s. FYI, this is the also the best selling death metal album of all time...over 250,000 copies, no death band has sold that high! This CD is a brutal masterpiece, Any true death metal head should own this. Peace!"
The epitome of death metal...period.

"I'm no longer a fan of the tired old death metal genre, but this album still gets some spin time in my cd players. Obituary's first two albums weren't too shabby, but "The End Complete" was simply the perfect death metal album. Not too technical, but really damn effective. Obituary conveyed the heaviest of metal without moving far from a mid-paced tempo. In fact the mid to slow paced beats made the chainsaw chugging riffs seem all the heavier. Pretty extraordinary album for it's time, and it still sounds just as good today. The band unfortunately never released another worthwhile album after this, though "World Demise" had it's moments (everything past that was garbage). There were some great death metal albums in the late 80's/early 90's...but this is the one that really made a lasting impact. This is death metal...everything now is just contrived."
Some of the heaviest tones ever recorded. Best metal album 1

"Alan West returns to Obituary and the result is 1992's "The End Complete" -the epitome of what a Death Metal album should be.
From the opening feedback and John Tardy's "UnAowhroahhhhhh!" you just know it gonna be great. West comes in with a wild solo and then Obituary keeps delivering the goods.

The drumming is good with lots of tom on double-bass fills, and lots of heavy cymbal beatings. John Tardy's vocals have never sounded better, not only because his voice is decipherable, but because the throaty nature fits the heavy music so well. His also makes better use of his vocal range on this album. And who could forget the dual axeman of Peres and West -which goes between the sludgy main guitar to West's wild soloing and then back again. The production is great as always, would we expect anything less from Scott Burns?

Simply put the best written and arranged Obituary album. Best Obituary album? It is a close tie between this and 1989's "Slowly We Rot" but I think "The End Complete" has the edge. This was also one of the best selling Death Metal albums of all time, if not THE best selling Death Metal album, selling more than 500,000 copies 1/2 of which in the first year and a half alone. And while Obituary would go the political route with their next album and then descend into literal retirement, you can always listen to this album and point to a time where Obituary had it all going for them. And while the Death Metal genre has been swallowed by self-parody and the ability not to make good music since about 1995, it good to know that you can listen to the "old days" when Florida Metal was rich and ambituous as exampled by "The End Complete".
