    Every After The Burial album is good but Rareform is by far their best IMO. There's hasn't been a more perfect mix of melodic metalcore riffs and heavy ass grooves since that album came out.

    I have a hard time identifying my favorite song on that one, it varies every time I listen. "Love, Hate, Love" is a perfect example of sick lyrics and vocals.

    prob get some flak for this one, but i stand by my decision. although the production could have been better, they did great for the time.

    Morbid Angel - God of Emptiness

    I can't decide between Covenant and Domination so I'll just nominate my favorite song.

    Haha, oh wow.
    I just listened to that album on my commute to work today for the first time in years and thought "damn, I forgot how great this album was."

    Triple hard counter that dig deep is their best album. I guess it's a good sign if you have a hard time deciding what a band's best effort is.

    Personally I'd go with Ritual, Nocturnal and Everblack are tied for a close second place for me. TBDM is my all time favorite band so to me they don't really have a bad album other than Miasma but that's just personal preference. Ritual is everything I loved about TBDM's previous releases rolled into one album. Den of the Picquerist is the best song they've ever written IMO.

    Hey that's awesome, they are one of my top five bands for sure so glad I can share the good news.

    They have a pretty diverse sound, that song I posted I find blends the heaviness and aggressiveness of their earlier work with their more ambitious and deep later work.
