Relapse Records Sampler Spring 1999 (Relapse Records)

By: Jeb Branin

This compilation was guaranteed to be controversial from the moment the cover art was selected. The cover is a spoof on the SLAYER sword logo, that instead of "Slayer" reads "Relapse." Because of the infamous inability of so many metal heads to utilize a sense of humor this was bound to get the goat of thousands of up-tight, immature, and dumb ass SLAYER fans. It is amazing how many people fail to realize that parody can not only be mocking but also the highest form of compliment. Oh well. Relapse is a great label with superb bands so any sampler from them is bound to be worth your time to track down. This one includes tracks by NEUROSIS, SOILENT GREEN, EXHUMED, NASUM, NILE, INCANTATION, MORGION, AMORPHIS, NEBULA, BONGZILLA, NIGHTSTICK, TODAY IS THE DAY, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, BENUMB, MORTICIAN, AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED, and REGURGITATE.
