An Amazing Death Metal Album! 91%. Wacke. All music by Nocturnus. Jeff Estes's bass tracks may have been 100% recorded by Mike Davis: based on a Mike Browning interview Jeff showed up to the recording already drunk and hardly able to track the songs, stating also that Mike recorded most of the bass tracks, however it is unknown what tracks Jeff recorded, if any.

The only change in the lineup since the "The Science of Horror (1988)" demo tape is that guitarist Gino Marino has been replaced by Sean McNenney.

Talk about Nocturnus - The Key


Grotilar
Horrible cover reprint, dark and oversaturated. All those interesting details on front cover have lost
Browelali
So? The record sounds incredible. I'd rather the label go all out on the sound quality of the record rather than the cover.
