Mortician – Hacked Up For Barbecue (1996)

I see Hacked Up For BBQ and Chainsaw Dismemberment as two parts of the same death metal masterpiece. Hacked Up however, recorded a whopping three years earlier, is the original Mortician full-length, released after several years of establishing themselves as one of the most brutal bands on the planet.

The open guitar and bass on “Bloodcraving” are absolutely nothing short of legendary, and no-doubt introduced Mortician’s nasty down tuned vibes to a whole new world of metal fans. This record is surely by now a part of metal history. Sure, yes, the grimy underbelly of metal history, but a part of the greater whole all the same.
