      Gorguts' second album (1993).

      An improvement over its less memorable predecessor, 'The Erosion of Sanity' is Gorguts' masterpiece and one of the most creative albums of early 1990s death metal. Luc Lemay and Sylvian Marcoux produce some of the most memorable guitar riffs in death metal outside of Death, while also frequently indulging in some seriously weird guitar theatrics to create an unsettling, oddball atmosphere.

      This album is more overtly 'technical' than 'Considered Dead,' incorporating subtle keyboards to enhance the effect of the discordant 'Condemned to Obscurity' that ends up sounding convincingly evil, and with acoustic guitar supplement in 'Dormant Misery' back when such things were still an original idea. At the same time, songs like the title track will still satisfy those looking for something a bit more regular. Eric Giguere's bass work grounds the whole thing in the dirt, while the scratchy production creates a compelling sensation of clawing at the coffin lid as the oxygen is slowly consumed.

      1. With Their Flesh, He'll Create
      2. Condemned to Obscurity
      3. The Erosion of Sanity
      4. Orphans of Sickness
      5. Hideous Infirmity
      6. A Path Beyond Premonition
      7. Odors of Existence
      8. Dormant Misery
