Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
It's Short, so It Sucks : Apparently, this was one of the non-production criticisms against Breeding the Spawn at the time of release. Rather ridiculous, really - it was only one track and two minutes shorter than Effigy of the Forgotten.
It's the Same, Now It Sucks: Another of the non-production criticisms against Breeding the Spawn. This stance more or less disappeared after a few years.
Magnum Opus: Effigy of the Forgotten, both for the band and the sub-genres of brutal and technical death metal as a whole. Some occasionally give this distinction to Pierced from Within, though.
Seinfeld Is Unfunny: Any death metal fan who knows anything will cite Human Waste and Effigy as all-time classics, but few people can fathom just how much those albums changed the face of death metal.
Signature Song: "Liege of Inveracity", "Infecting the Crypts", "Pierced from Within", and "Thrones of Blood".
Sophomore Slump: Big-time. Some aspects of Breeding the Spawn have been Vindicated by History; particularly, the song-writing, which was attacked at the time as failing to bring any new element to their sound, is now considered to have been among the most technical ever produced by the band. However, to this day it's generally agreed that the production and engineering is a total failure that brings the album down several notches.
