Cianide - "The Dying Truth" (1992)

The Dying Truth is a death/doom classic released in 1992. Cianide's debut LP conjures images of a wooly mammoth's slowly deteriorating carcass -- slow and steady and disgusting. The album's monolithic chugging riffs will fracture necks, but hark! there are a few blast beats to be heard, accompanied by gurgled barking that will make you think you have stepped into Hell whilst it being under construction.
