"Retronomicon" (Iron Pegasus; 2008)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

The 14-track "Retronomicon" can best be described as a scattershot composite of the death metal band After Death. Led by early Morbid Angel member Mike Browning, After Death's metallic style varies across this disc due to the material being taken from different eras with different band lineups, most notably with a Deep Purple-esque organ found on the "Reviving the Gods" portion of this compilation and a old school Slayer-meets-Grim Reaper vibe permeating through the "Consumed" era. 

Nonetheless, this release is presented with detailed liner notes and is perfect for those who want a streamlined account of the trials and tribulations of this occult act.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
