Neil Grace Not merely another OSDM clone, these guys are the real thing! Thudding drums and a crazed guitar attack throughout give this at times an almost punk feel to it.
Underground OSDM at it's best and not a second wasted on this LP.
Rather gruesome cover art too. Very 80's. Lovely, just lovely.

Dirk-Peter Barczyk For Old school Death Metal Maniacs just right! Sick sound at the Doom Speed! Who goes on Band's like Sonne Adam, Necros Christos or Autopsy can not go wrong here! Favorite track: Stagnation of Transmigration.

Ave Acer Mors Did that last metal album you bought just not induce enough neck-snapping headbanging? Petrification has got you fucking covered my friend. This is ugly, stomping, caveman death metal, just the way you maniacs like it, and with its own grotesque character. Blast this shit and let the madness flow, total fucking support and putrid hails to yet another triumph from Portland’s metal scene. Favorite track: Summon Horrendous Destruction.

Matthew Toye Petrification came out swinging here with an impressive display of hideous and pummelling death metal. Think of them as a cut-throat version of Bolt Thrower, but not copycatting them by any means. Favorite track: Summon Horrendous Destruction.

Bastard old school death metal orcs Petrification return with their debut full-length album, unleashing a lawless legion of pummeling and brain-eating riffs designed to annihilate the listener and dismantle their flesh in the most barbarous and least efficient way possible. Through these eleven new cuts of decaying brutality and mental abuse, the Portland death metal butchers unleash a barrage of classically gruesome and traditionally repulsive death metal chaos that worships directly at the rotting altar of legends Autopsy, Nihilist, Grave, Convulse, Funebre, Bolt Thrower etc., while also setting their footmark as a visionary and ambitious entity all of their own, set on a path of total self-determination within the most liminal realms of absurd death metal de(con)struction.
