synthohol An unforgiving, disturbing masterpiece of death metal which steamrolls everything in its way.

It is rawer in terms if production compared to re-recorded tracks on Effigy Of The Forgotten and this only benefits the album's atmosphere. Favorite track: Human Waste.

Timato The first song they ever wrote and its still one of the hardest songs 20 some odd years later Favorite track: Catatonia.

argylesock5 Inarguably, this is death metal. Noisy, pulverizing marches with wild, unhinged riffs that reflect the earlier times of death metal when the genre was violently being birthed from the carcass of stiffer music. In addition, the loud, crashing production makes the songs substantially better than the Effigy of the Forgotten re-records (see: Mass Obliteration). Just look at the album art and know that there is only hostility here; a seal of quality in spades. Favorite track: Jesus Wept.

juhaulkoniemi One of the strongest death metal records I've ever heard. A timeless, cathartic masterpiece with a definite musical personality. Highly recommended. Favorite track: Synthetically Revived.

xhrl_ Oh baby, this is my favourite death metal EP! Finally decided to buy this initial release from Suffocation. This is a killer NY style death metal release. Human Waste is profoundly insightful and innovative. Shuddering waves of power chords and arpeggios build multiple structures from the thoughtful & simple nihilistic, chromatic riffs. The living pulse of this EP infuses all of the music with a breathing relevance that few can deny. A glorious, hearty, savage-throat-filled, 'Arrrrrggghhhh!!!' Favorite track: Jesus Wept.

The first ever CD released on Relapse Records, Suffocation's legendary Human Waste CD is the blueprint by which disturbingly brutal, down tuned death metal has come to follow. A legend is now reborn! With 2 tracks previously unreleased from the Reincremation demo from 1990!
