Arsis - A Celebration Of Guilt
The first time I heard this album, I was absolutely floored. James Malone was (and pretty much still is) one of the greatest death metal guitar players and it really shows on here. ACOG is great because although it's definitely melodic death metal, there's technical death metal and hints of completely different genres strewn about. And unlike some of their more recent albums, I can't find a single song of filler on ACOG. It's just SOOOOOOOOO good. I'd totally recommend this to someone wanting to get into melodic or just straight up death metal along with all the classics.
Fave songs: The Face Of My Innocence, Seven Whispers Fell Silent, The Sadistic Motives Behind Bereavement Letters
