The long-awaited (?) official first album from Santiago, Chile's Totten Korps, Tharnheim: Athi-Land-Nhi -- Cyclopean Crypts of Citadels contains a death metal onslaught of impressive proportions. Featuring a well-balanced blend of controlled aggression and mindless brutality, the record obviously benefited from its lengthy gestation period, and while hardly innovative or groundbreaking, should entertain most serious death metal fans. And the inclusion of their rare early-'90s demos makes for a pretty complete career retrospective to boot.
