Essential for so many reasons. Not just the well-worn stuff from Carcass, Morbid Angel, and Napalm Death... What about Spazztic Blurr, Mighty Force, and Intense Degree? What about Sweet Tooth? This thing is like a heavy metal time capsule, containing just about everything good going on in the world of meathead-metal circa 1991.
Actually, for the record, a limited version was released by Earache in 1989, and the extra tracks were added to the Combat/Earache version two years later for much wider distribution. So there you go.

1. Morbid Angel - Chapel of Ghouls
2. Repulsion - Radiation Sickness
3. Carcass - Exhume to Consume 
4. Godflesh - Streetcleaner 
5. Terrorizer - Dead Shall Rise
6. Hellbastard - Justly Executed
7. Carnage - Malignant Epitaph
8. Naked City - Osaka Bondage
9. Filthy Christians - Extremely Bad Breath
10. Old Lady Drivers - Colostomy Grab Bag
11. Intense Degree - I've Got A Cure
12. Sore Throat - Horrendify and Kill
13. Napalm Death - Malicious Intent
14. Entombed - But Life Goes On
15. Nocturnus - BC/AD
16. Bolt Thrower - World Eater
17. Lawnmower Deth - Satan's Trampoline
18. Cadaver - Hypertrophian
19. Sweet Tooth - Fat City
20. Mighty Force - Thrashing a Dead House
21. Spazztic Blurr - He-Not-A-Home-Me-Marco
22. Heresy - Release
23. Unseen Terror - Divisions
24. Napalm Death - You Suffer

This comp changed my life. My first exposure to Entombed and Carcass.

In '89 I was the host of a metal show on the local college radio station (giving away my age...). I'd been doing the show for about six months when Earache sent out that cassette sampler in December. It had two Godflesh tracks and three tracks each from Morbid Angel, Bolt Thrower, Napalm Death, and Entombed...Ripped my head rendering me permanently damaged. Even though there weren't any exclusive tracks on it, I wish I still had that comp just for the "holy relic" value.

I lieu of the holiday I was crossing my fingers for the first Engorged album. But this does a damn good job too.

I don't think anyone can front on the significance of the mighty GRINDCRUSHER.
And Seth, that Engorged pun went right over my head for about an hour. I started thinking about it later, trying to figure out what Lovecraft and dinosaurs had to do with T-Day and then, all of the sudden, it was like "Ohhhhhh. Engoooorged." Nice one. Total sleeper.

If you're not listening to this... you're not listening to music!!!

Truly the cream of the pestilent crop, not only the best, but diverse and truly put together with a love for the music, not the money. You could learn a lot from a GRINDCRUSHER
