Fatal - 1991 - A Somber Evocation of Nihilism 7''

Fatal started out playing a combination of death metal, thrash and death/grind, but later moved onto a more unique brand of death/thrash, and they played it flawlessly. This EP is a good example that sometimes a band shifting styles rather dramatically is okay. A Somber Evocation of Nihilism is an excellently crafted piece of death/thrash comprised of superb musicianship, well thought out and coherent song writing and a lot of unique ideas.

You can also read my review of the compilation album put out by Necroharmonic that features this band's whole discography here.

This is my own vinyl rip of the EP. Enjoy.
