I posted a couple of old Confessor demos way back in March, which were a precursor to Condemned, their first official full-length. This shit is incredibly innovative for being so old, and conceptually I would group Confessor with bands like Trouble and Voivod as far as pure vision and originality. It is also HEAVY AS FUCK, and if you can handle the histrionic opera vocals it is pure GOLD for repeat listenings. It's cool to hear what else was going on in 1991, besides the death spasms of thrash and the birth pains of death metal. Confessor was lurking at the fringes. All hail Confessor!
