What's the deal with Resurrection? They should have gone down in Death Metal history alongside their fellow Floridians Morbid Angel and Death, but something went awry. All the elements are there: Sweet cover painted by Dan Seagrave? Check. Engineered by Scott Burns at Morrisound Studios? Check. 1993 release date? Check. Corny logo and poorly-lit band photo (below)? Check. Lots of double bass pummeling and off-the-hook guitar solos? Check and check. So what's the deal?
Maybe folks weren't down with the completely unneccessary spoken word intros at the beginning of EVERY song. Maybe it was the crappy Kiss cover ("War Machine") that closed out the album. I dunno. Maybe YOU can tell me.
