Released:
Label: Roadrunner Records
A touchstone record in both death metal and grindcore, 1991's Effigy of the Forgotten is seminal Long Island death metal act Suffocation's debut album. At the time of its appearance, the record's level of precision and overall technicality was essentially unheard of in extreme metal. Frank Mullen's incredibly guttural grunt is still practically unheard of. Dive-bombing guitar solos and churning moshes (see the one-two punch of the title cut and "Infecting the Crypts") had a major effect on countless grindcore bands.
