Coroner clearly had an influence on much of the extreme metal that came out in the late 80's and throughout the 90's. This is a fine record in itself, and I will likely check out some of their other stuff.
Swiss tech thrash masters Coroner are usually brought up in the conversation when talking about the greatest thrash metal bands. However the community seems to be divided on whether it's the early albums (R.I.P. and Punishment for Decadence) or the later albums (No More Color and Mental Vortex) which deserve the distinction as best Coroner album. I choose the early ones, specifically Punishment for Decadence. Corner is an exceptionally talented band, pushing the boundaries of thrash with complex song structures and masterful instrumental performances. Tommy T Baron's guitar work is superb, quite possibly the best we've seen in the genre. Take a listen to Arc-Lite and see for yourself.
