Absolutely essential masterpiece. As influential to death metal as it was to grind, although it has little in common with the boring and far past its expiry date grind scene of today, people should keep in mind that back then the boundary between genres was much more blurred. This album was praised and worshiped by the overlapping death, black, punk and grind scene and rightfully so.

Beyond increible and a truly crushing album from the true masters of sick grind.

Essential recording - a powerful fist in the stomach of 'nu-metal-post-punk-softcore' fans. Original hardcore/grindcore album (& not death metal!), stays for decades in top of the lists, together with Napalm Death's historic 'SCUM' album.

While technically released after the first two Napalm Death albums, Horrified by Repulsion was recorded in 1986, which technically makes it the first grindcore full length ever recorded. In the middle of Death Metal's development, Horrified mixes the speed and aggression of hardcore punk with raspy vocals, raw and gritty guitar tones and blast-beat drumming. As far as quality goes, Horrified is perhaps the greatest example of classic grindcore ever to be released. The songwriting is superb, every riff that zooms by is executed perfectly. Dispute grindcore's reputation as a "sloppy" genre, Repulsion are far from sloppy, they may be raw and ugly, but the skill of the musicians is unquestionable as every riff, kick, and growl is perfectly aligned with each other.

If you like both punk and death metal, this album is essential. If you only like one and not the other, try this album anyway, it's short (as all grindcore albums are), and the punk + death metal hybrid Repulsion crafted is thoroughly unique, and delievers something for both punk fans, and death metal fans.
