I guess not everyone will be instantly hooked by the progressiveness of this album, as in many ways “Mature Necropsy” is not an easy listen. This music is not as straight forward and “catchy” as other bands; these riffs and song structures will sound bizarre in the first impression because of their complexity and frequent rhythm changes, but once you listen to it again and again – and you’ll give it repetitive listens, as this music is just possessing – I bet this will all make sense to you and you’ll start catching every part, every riff, and phrase without any problems. All in all, this album is probably the catchiest and easiest to listen to, i like that opening theme which is just incredibly great! And maybe it is a good thing that this album has to grown on you. I guess I just know it too well and I’ve listened to it too many times, hehe!. So, if you’ve never heard Putrid Offal and want to hear one of the most significant death metal records of all time, then just give it a try. Every instrument is heard just the way I want it to be heard. Hell even the artwork rules on this album. There is no reason for you to not go out and buy this! If you like death metal, go and buy it right now!
