New York's metal outfit Immolation (growling vocalist and bassist Ross Dolan, guitarists Robert Vigna and Thomas Wilkinson, and drummer Craig Smilowski) debuted with the Morbid Angel-influenced death-metal of Dawn of Possession (1991), not particularly innovative but relentless. Intricate riffs and savage rhythms hijack the less bludgeoning Here in After (1996), with new drummer Alex Hernandez. If Failures for Gods (1999) fails to terrorize and sounds relatively sterile, Close to a World Below (2000) was their most inventive album, with Vigna and Wilkinson's most technical riffs finding an unlikely balance between brutality and subtlety. Close to a World Below is eight minutes of blasphemous aural assault.

Alas, Wilkinson quit, replaced by Bill Taylor, and Unholy Cult (2002) insisted a bit too much on dissonance for the sake of dissonance, as if that alone had become their trademark. The songs are a bit less inspired, despite the new eight-minute Satanic tour de force, Unholy Cult (2002).

They replaced Hernandez with new drummer Steve Shalaty on Harnessing Ruin (2005).
