Dreams of the Carrion Kind

1993

Death Metal

Disincarnate's only album was ostensibly the much anticipated solo showcase for journeyman guitarist James Murphy, whose personal legend had been built, almost entirely, upon a series of brief but highly praised cameos with influential bands Obituary, Death, and Cancer. As much as his capabilities as a principal songwriter and bandleader, Dreams became a living document of instrumental overindulgence gone ape, having been released near the zenith of the Floridian death metal scene's technical-cerebral maturity.

Disco

For curiosity-seekers, this oddity finds the Village People reckoning with the death of disco and the departure of their frontman. In response, they embraced a New Romantic image, a new wave sound, and delivered barely-disguised entendres on "Big Mac" and became truly childish with "Food Fight."
