Yonkers, New York NY, United States (1986 – present)

Immolation is a band from Yonkers, New York. They were formed in 1986 as Rigor Mortis. The name was changed to Immolation in late 1987, between the “Warriors of Doom” demo which was done as Rigor Mortis and “Demo I” which was done as Immolation. The band recorded 4 songs on the “Demo II” 1989 sessions, but only 3 were finally released: “Internal decadence”, “Burial Ground” and “Despondent Souls”. The remaining song is “Infectious Blood” (later re-named “Fall in Disease” on the “Dawn of Possession” Album). This song remained unavailable until the release of “Stepping on Angels…Before Dawn” CD.

In 1991, the band got a deal with Roadrunner Records and released their debut album Dawn of Possession. They were dropped by the label when the label dropped nearly all of the death metal bands. Later, they were picked up by Metal Blade Records and released the three succeeding albums through them. After the second one Here in After, drummer Craig Smilowski left the band and was replaced by Alex Hernandez who immediately boosted the technical proficiency of the band as a whole. The most recent two albums were released by Listenable Records. Unholy Cult saw the departure of guitarist Thomas Wilkinson, and Steve Shalaty replaced Hernandez on Harnessing Ruin.

    Oh man, that was entertaining. Now I've got popcorn stuck between my teeth... =( And Majesty and Decay rules! And KoC was good too, not one of their best of course, but still good.

    Whatever - It was certainly nothing new as far as Immo are concerned, but I enjoyed their riffing well enough. In other news, Unholy Cult, Here In After and CtaWB get better and better everytime I hear them.

    Kingdom of Conspiracy was consistently bland and had the worst production I've heard in years. No classic Dolan vocal hooks, no atmosphere. Very lacklustre album.

    Majesty had some songs that are better than most of Kingdom, but I felt that Kingdom was actually more consistent. And there's All That Awaits Us, which is immense!

    I still think Kingdom of Conspiracy was decent enough - I do hope it isn't a sign of the future though, I'd be satisfied with another album of the level of Majesty or maybe Failure for Gods.

    defnoob decided to get all butthurt because he actually thinks Gorgoroth are good(lol) and I think they suck. He took a shitty negative review too seriously and got offended, not my problem he thinks Gorgoroth have song writing talent.

    Is this ArtofShred guy being an idiot in this shoutbox again. He's like the epitome of a generic metalhead who acts elitist without any grounds to act elitist because all he listens to is a plethora of entry-level bands.

    "It's certainly better than the nu-metal-disguised-as-sludge Acid Bath peddled." If you don't like Acid Bath, then you don't like Acid Bath. There's nothing I can do about that, so continue to bash them, it doesn't effect me in the slightest, unlike how someone writing a negative review for a (shitty) album apparently bothers you guys enough that you feel the need to whine about on Immolation's shoutbox. LOL

    Pentagram is an excellent album. I doubt you've heard it if you think they've never had songwriting talent (and I suggest hearing it because it's wonderful). It's certainly better than the nu-metal-disguised-as-sludge Acid Bath peddled.
