Exhume the wretched body from its timeless slumber
Thrashing the tomb to reveal what's inside
A maggot-infected corpse stares dismal
Inhabited by worms chewing holes through your carcass

"Suffocation’s Effigy of The Forgotten, memorable for both its enclosing, viably brutal sound, it’s melody, and its ability for the listeners to easily remember the experience. While melody doesn’t seem like a big part, it’s just as essential to Suffocation’s sound as brutality."

Great album, but I can't disagree more with the theme of this review. This sucker is so dense and hard to fully appreciate at first - it takes multiple listens, which I think you suggest later in your review. Also, Suffocation write almost exclusively in the chromatic scale which is a sequence of half steps. The end result is rather atonal and lacks conventional melody. Don't get me wrong, this is a great album - but the melody you speak to just isn't there. At least, it isn't there in any conventional musical sense of the word.

To get my point, listen to a classic OSDM release like this and then listen to a classic NBM release like Emporer's Nightside Eclipse. Then you will see what I mean about melody. Hell - Most of the Florida DM acts used melody more than the New York Scene did - like Morbid Angel, Death - both used more conventional scales, melodies, and even harmonies at times.
