Basically, on this album Immolation play a rather unorthodox style of death metal that really didn’t have all that many contemporaries in the death metal field of the early 90’s. The early efforts of Morbid Angel are a somewhat close touchstone to the style of songwriting exhibited on here. When all is said and done, despite a few minor flaws, Dawn of Possession is an excellent album for any death metal fan to own in their collection. It’s what technical death metal should aspire to be: with the more complex and technical elements intelligently integrated into the songwriting without succumbing to mindless virtuosity, like a lot of other death metal bands in the technical field.

Immolation 1991 debut album, Dawn of Possession, is regarded as a death metal classic in a year full of death metal classics. Does Dawn of Possession still hold up to this day? Was it a worthy start for the legendary band? When it comes to the album’s sound and style, it’s actually quite traditional. Actually, it’s rather impressive how well-done the atmosphere is in Dawn of Possession. The powerful sounding riffs colliding with the extremely technical drumming and Ross Dolan’s intimidating yet, easy-ish to understand vocals creates a rather chaotic atmosphere. In general, this album is best described as very controlled chaos. Immolation - Into Everlasting Fire. When it comes to the whole anti-christianity theme of this album, there are several things that could go wrong.
