1988. Rigor Mortis 

is the debut album by band Rigor Mortis, it was Released in July 19.

Rigor Mortis is a thrash/speed metal band that formed in 1983 in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas metroplex. Two schoolmates Harden Harrison (drums) and Casey Orr (bass) formed the band when they met Mike Scaccia (guitar). The three young men shared an interest in horror/gore films and very heavy music. With Bruce Corbitt on vocals they created some of the heaviest thrash metal at the time often flirting with death metal. They were also one of the only major thrash bands from Texas and virtually created the underground metal scene there.

This album truly deserves all the praise it gets, There is no other possible explanation of why this album is so perfect! 

amazing singer, drums is so fast, they are all talented, and guitar-style Mike Scaccia carries his band through 10 scorching fast songs, Scaccia’s heavy use of tremlo picking and single-string-riffs give Rigor Mortis an incredibly unique sound. He also strays away from traditional power-chord & “chug” riffs that were so prevalent in thrash-metal of the 80s.

Rigor Mortis is a masterpiece.
