Product Description

The first thing that catches the listener's attention is the flawless production, a few steps ahead of the one heard in the debut. The album is also much more varied than the previous offerings - Rigor Mortis finally surfaced their punk influences, with t

HASH(0xa7a1d4b0) out of 5 stars Rigor Mortis final album May 28 2003
By chris - Published on
Format: Audio CD
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.

A girl at work brought this in one day and I let her play it on my CD player. I was thinking it was just some Death Metal band I'd rather not care to hear, but I was busy so I didn't mind her playing it. I'm glad to see I was wrong...this was one helluva find! I'm mostly into Punk and Hardcore kinda stuff, and a big fan of Thrash metal, and this seems to have elements of all of those, plus it reminded me of my friend's band here in Denver, so I just had to get it. She burnt me a copy and I can't say I can find anything wrong with this CD! It's funny, yet its got that "we like to destroy everything" edge that metal needs to survive. Definately a thrashin' disc! Its one in a million, and if you can check it out, get it. I love this album already.

This is RM's third and final cd. I don't hate it as much as most Rigor Mortis fans but like most fans I think the first cd is their best. This cd however has the RM sound, I think the worst thing about it is the production, to me its like the one/ones who were in the studio only worked with Bon Jovi and Madonna and didn't capture a metal kind of sound. Mike's guitar playing is superb, he is way better than average and can fly around the frets. The vocals work for the music, and the lyrics are interesting in many different senses. I can see why someone who never heard of RM wouldn't like this upon first listen. But to me they still retain alot of their trademark elements. It's unfortunate this album was their demise. RIP

although this isn't their best album (self titled 1st release is the best), Rigor Mortis Vs. the earth is a great album. The intro, "dying in my sleep" features amazing accoustic guitar...while tracks like "mummified", "asphixia", and "the rack" are simply crushing!!!! Unbelievable riffs/picking/solos from lead guitarist mike scaccia. The songs with vocals by doyle are better than those with bassist Casey Orr on vocals...But the track "Sog" is a thrash classic with casey on vocals....A couple of punk--type tracks also appear, featuring a great cover of THE RAMONES "PSYCHO THERAPY" A MUST-HAVE FOR ANY LATE 80'S/EARLY 90'S METAL HEAD!!! 1st lp was RIGOR MORTIS and 2nd was FREAKS...find all three of these on VINYL!!!! much better than CD!!!!

This is a great album! Please be aware that this album has a different singer than their first. This is a Crossover band. Thrash and Punk rolled up in one, so I read. I do hear it at times. I recommend getting the actual cd with lyrics and art. The art is good but in a cheesy way. It felt like back in the day. I feel at times there's no fun purchasing from iTunes or Amazon to download MP3's.
