3. the world's greatest tooth-and-nail death metal band
Immolation is unrelenting death metal in its purest form. They do not slow the pace of the music or water it down like the pussies in Six Feet Under and Torture Killer. Death metal, after all, is a speed demons dream.

If you heaven't heard Dawn of Possession yet, you are not a death metal fan.

If you do not like Dawn of Possession you are a retarded degenerate and should be immolated.
