Macabre (USA) - Gloom (1989)

Macabre (USA) - Gloom (1989)

This was the first Macabre album I heard, and I am not sure what exactly it was I expected but I really wasn't expecting it to be like this.  From the get go, all of a sudden it's just this whirling frenzy of guitars, drums and bass.  First thing I noticed was how insane the drummer was, followed by actually being able to hear the bass and the playing together with the drums was crazy.  I don't think I'd ever heard something like that before, but it was insane.  Not to mention the vocals just to top it off.  It's a bit unfortunate that the album only goes for 24 minutes, I guess being almost as many songs as their are minutes on the album is why they added the two extra tracks, Funeral Home and Disease to the later CD pressing.  It seems to be just the right amount though, any more and I think it would just end up being a chore.

Also, I just have to add that the portraits of the band members on the back of the LP are fucking amazing.
