weirdly I think the latest one from last year is my least favorite. it isn't 'bad', but comparing it side by side with Atonement, Atonement just has a lot more ideas going on, melodically. Acts of God runs out of steam after the first few tracks

Cannibal Corpse are sort of in the same position IMO - the new album is good, but a clear step down from the one before.

Their songwriting can be a bit dense and muddy and difficult to follow, but when they have ideas, guitars especially, they shine bright and come out clear. Overall I quite enjoy them. I relistened to The Unholy Cult and Here in After and I think my vote is still CTAWB by default because of its superior consistency.

Thought this was the Elon Musk thread for a second.

voted Dawn due to peak faves like Those Left Behind and After My Prayers, but if I had to recommend one album it would be Close To A World Below, where they created the sound of hellfire

People who like Immolation should check out Phobocosm. They put out a new album this week, so I bought their whole discography, and they really have a grip on the whole morose death-doom thing.
