The trudging doom metal elements Autopsy had flirted with since their beginning came to full fruition on Mental Funeral, with tunes marked by levels of slo-mo near those of Saint Vitus. "In the Grip of Winter," for one, almost goes backward at one point. Directly descended from the lo-fi half-tempos of once-obscure doom godfathers Trouble, Autopsy's second full-length is frequently identified as having a major effect on death metal itself, and with the doom explosion of the '00s, it remains relevant, if not downright seminal. "Dead" and "Robbing the Grave" are two more highlights.
