No. 14: Suffocation, ‘Effigy of the Forgotten’ – Best Debut Metal Albums

Suffocation, 'Effigy of the Forgotten'

Suffocation are the most brutal live band on the planet. Exposure to Suffocation’s music is like being hit by a brick wall thrown from the top of the Grand Canyon.

Baffling enough, when performed live, the tracks from ‘Effigy of the Forgotten’ consistently remain as Suffocation’s most purely brutal offerings. The album is widely known for blueprinting low guttural vocals and integrating masterful technicality within brutal death metal, and the disc’s tracks ‘Infecting the Crypts,’ ‘Liege of Inveracity’ and ‘Jesus Wept’ could compete with any modern death metal song in a competition of pure heaviness.
