Title: Necrology deluxe reissue
Year Released: 2011
Reviewer: Terry Bunch
| "GENERAL SURGERY's Necrology is a murderously savage operation performed by four sanious Swedes (2 of whom were members of DISMEMBER and AFFLICTED) recorded in unsanitary Sunlight Studios during November 1990. Dual vocal malpractitioners spew obnoxiously putrid gargling gore. The oozing catchiness is heinously highlighted by sickening riffs played with perversely pathological surgical skill. Necrology will reduce listeners to violated postulated cadavers. Now remastered and reissued with 3 bonus tracks."
The first thing that jumps out about this re-issue is that the remastering has done a fantastic job of bringing out the sheer ferocity of this album. Everything can be heard now and the rhythms are bass are finally coherent.
Rarely, does this much grind and death get a melodic treatment, but on this album the anger and violence are wielded with surgical skill. This is mosh pit fodder extreme!
The dual vocals expand the range that the band can play within to keep everything in tune. Yes, this album is in tune! That does not take away from it's power, it only adds to to it. Crunching guitar and bass and searing solos are all driven by insane drumming... driven right through you.
If you own the original, you will enjoy the re-issue for sure. If you somehow missed this gem of an album, now is your chance.
