"Brrrrraaaagggghhllrrrg!!! finally I got hold of one of the finest metal albums of the late 80's of last century. I bought it all those years ago on a rainy day together with Repulsion's "Horrified" and was thrilled beyond any earthly belief. Common sence died that day.
Over the years Repulsion has become more known and is mentionned in one vile breath together with the classic grind acts Napalm Death and Carcass. Rigor Mortis however disappeared into the backyards and dark alleys of doomed "curiossity metal". And it is now, finaly, that some one had the bashed-in brains and ripped-out guts to put this dark, gargling record on The Holy Silver Disc.

Rigor Mortis presents on this self-named debut a fine range of disturbing tales of mayhem, slaughter, decapitation and gruwesome deaths. But the style is intriguing, sometimes even lyrical and above all theatrical, almost cartoonesque, and that puts Rigor Mortis (just as, for instance, that other insane crazy metal act OLD a.k.a. Old Lady Drivers) above most deathcore groups who lack any kind of self mockery and take themselves to seriously.

Enriched with samples from celebrated horrormovies like the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" flicks and the even so graphic-novel-like "Re-animator", this album is a treat for all mentally disordered metal fans, B-movie serial killer impersonators, and other slow-death-enthusiasts.

"I'm not going to say too much about this album.
It is fast, heavy, hilarious, dark, beer-ridden, and kick ass. This is what speed and thrash are supposed to be.
"Foaming at the mouth," and "Re-animator" are true thrash jems that play out brutifully.
Yep, Rigor Mortis will make you use words that only make sense to those who know this album.
The remaster really helps this old album out. Now put down your Mickey's Big Mouth and go buy this album. Fierce!"
