no question about it... "Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious" is Carcass's defining moment. a glorious splatter platter of brutally fierce, melodicly medical grind/metal. Does that make sense? the songwriting here is top notch...every track is a monsterous example of how much power these guys had. Technicality and killer hooks are all combined with great (and amusing) lyrics to make an excellent kind of album that Carcass would never make again. and the cover art is great...scary, creepy, and artisticly well done. It's hands down one of the best death metal albums of all time, as well as one of many metallers' all time favorite death metal albums ever. This was the one Carcass album along with "Heartwork" that really got the scene into this awesome band. Whether they'd be goregrind/grindcore, death metal, or even melodeath, Carcass are truly one of a kind in the metal world.
Overall, an unforgettable album!
