I just listened to F,E,D for the first time in awhile and I'd say it bridges the gap between the death metal of Harmony Corruption and Utopia Banished and the more experimental sounding era of Diatribes thru Words from the Exit Wound. It's very primative and primal, much like the earlier albums. But the production isn't as dirty as those album, much cleaner and polished like the later albums. But the songs are pretty much straight up death metal and not as diverse as some of the stuff that followed.
There are some great songs like Twist the Knife (Slowly) and my personal favorite Plague Rages. My earlist ND memory is the video of that song and even when I hear it now my mind flashes to the part in the video where Barney sings "am I right or wrong, or just confused" and is hitting himself in the side of the head. That always makes me laugh.
