The last album by an intense band. This album showcases their best songwriting and studio production. Sick humor and tongue-in-cheek horror show lyrics make "vs the Earth" real fun to listen to. Mike Scaccia's got to be the fastest guitar player in the genre, and his melodies are seemingly never-ending. A bit more effects on the guitar and vocals than on their previous two albums make for a more polished product. The liner notes include lyrics to better follow along songs about being mummified, suffocated, ripped apart, alien invaded, disgusted by seafood and your local tweeker slut.And as on their other two albums, there is a couple of instrumentals so full of emotion you may forget you're listening to music to dismember by. If you enjoy this, check out Blohole, the band Mike and Casey did after Rigor Mortis called it quits. Also there is a killer one-time Rigor Mortis song called 'foaming at the mouth' on the soundtrack to "the Decline of Western Civ.2", for true Rigor Mortis fans.
