I’d been a thrash fan for a few years by 1992, but, truth be
told, most of these sorts of albums tended to sound rather samey. And then
Tourniquet, already CCM’s premier thrash band, released Pathogenic Ocular Dissonance, as notable for the titles of its
tracks (e.g. ‘Gelatinous Tubercles of Purulent Ossification’) as for the
intricacy and imagination of its music. This remains, in my view, the best
metal album ever conceived.
Standout track: ‘Phantom Limb’ (start watching at 18:00 minutes in the video below)
