Ultimate Mondo Cannibale
Holy shit. Remember Wild Rags?
Anyway, Impetigo has always been lumped into the death metal category and, frankly, I don't hear it. They sound like a fastcore band that has gore lyrics. It sounds more like Lethal Aggression or the Japanese 625 bands than something like Deicide. That said, Steve-O definitely comes from the Killjoy/Necrophagia school of vocals: sloppy and fucked up.
Ultimate Mondo Cannibale more than compensates for it's lack of "brutality" with its influential status. Impetigo wrote the sample-then-blast playbook that Mortician and so many other follow. It rules, but I still call it fastcore; with the buzzsaw guitars, whirlwind drums and distorted bass. If Impetigo is death metal, then so is Flesh Parade. You be the judge.
