If it isn't broke, don't fix it! At least that is my take on Immolation's tenth studio album, Atonement. Their brand of 90's influenced death metal is just as brutal now as it was back in 1991, when they released their debut, Dawn Of Possession. Although not a chaotic as Kingdom of Conspiracy, Atonement finds Immolation adding more discordant riffs and progressive songwriting to their arsenal. The inhuman vocals, blazing riffs and complex blast-beat drumming remain consistent with previous efforts, but are further amplified with awesome production. It's safe to say that Immolation continue to remain relevant in today's death metal scene.
