Anything before the Scion Era of Immolation is pretty good.

One of the very few bands with an almost perfect discography. I like all newer material quite a lot. Strangely enough I'd have to say that I like the earliest material (first couple LPs) the least of all (even though it's all great). I don't think the full blown Immolation sound has ever been more fully realized than on Close to a World Below. That album is fucking terrifying.

Anyway I basically cannot criticize Immolation much at all. Just an amazing band all around.

All the love for Unholy Cult prompted me into giving it a listen. It doesn't have the immediacy of the first four but it's still very good.

I voted Dawn of Possession as that is, indeed my favorite. Cool

But I'd put it this way: DoP, HiA, and Close to a World... are the 3 head and shoulders above the rest. Evil or Very Mad

It was near impossible to pick from Dawn, Here, and Close, but Close to a World Below is one of the most pissed of records I've ever heard. Not to mention utterly crushing.

Forever 'Close to a World Below'! That album means everything to me. Would love to have that on LP.
I tried many many times, but can't get into 'Dawn.. ' Gave up on that.
'Here in After' & 'Failures for Gods' are 2nd best runner ups.
The rest are hit and run for me.

Only four for Failures For Gods? All the songs are awesome, and the really muddy production just enhances the songs.

The only album I really don't care much for is Harnessing Ruin. Everything else is pretty fucking awesome with Close to a World Below getting first and Unholy Cult a very close second.

Current poll stats are very accurate! A small step toward redemption after that unfortunate "classic albums that suck" thread.

Here In After is their artistic peak, but I voted Close To A World Below because it gets the most listens from me.

True, although there's often a split between "sound" (aesthetic) and content.

try again. i have had the same "problem" for years.... it is not like homosexuality, you can find a solution.


I've sold the cd aeons ago so I'm streaming here in after now from youtube and you are right. few songs I've listened are good (even if I still prefer dawn of possession). I'm reconsidering my old opinion
