As much as I love Napalm Death and the like, it's really these guys who are the true innovators and kings of grind. They took their love for the best of punk (Discharge, DRI) and the best of extreme metal (Slayer, Celtic Frost, and Slaughter) to create a musical genre that would knock the metal underground on it's f*cking *ss. Afterall it's these guys who were the first to do it and the one's who invented the BLAST BEAT! But what will really catch a metal aficionado's fancy are the f*cking riffs. See folks the problem sometimes in grindcore (like on Scum) is that sometimes the band has the desire to be as extreme as possible that the forget the value of the riff but the boys of Repulsion never ever forgot that and that's what I praise them the most for. They even throw in some solos which were definitely the Slayer-esque bunny-in-a-blender style and it sounds great. What makes the riffs so good are the inherent catchiness of them despite their uncompromising rawness. Some great examples of this would be Radiation Sickness, Maggots In Your Coffin, and Black Breath. I dare you to listen to "Maggots" and not do a frenzied headbang while shouting along with the catchy chorus. What's amazing about Black Breath is that it's one of the slowest grind songs ever but one of the best!

Of course what's a Horrified review without mentioning it's massive influence. This has to be one of the most ripped-off extreme metal albums I've ever heard. I mean even the first time I listened to this I was like "dude there's a Carcass riff! Wait there's ND riff! There's another!" and so on and so on. But one of the biggest culprits are Entombed of all people. It was because of Repulsion they were able to create the almighty Left Hand Path.

Grindcore defined. Recorded in mid '86, Repulsion did it first and did it best. This album was so friggin far ahead of its time that they couldn't even get a record deal until Repulsion worshipers Carcass put it out 3 years later and got Dig to distro it. It was considered too extreme (Death and Morbid Angel had the same problem back then too). Sounds retarded today but record companies back then thought Slayer fans couldn't handle death metal/grindcore. Boy were they wrong.
To put Repulsion in perspective, while you're listening to Horrified with its lightning fast drums, riffs that cut like razors, the goriest lyrics ever at the time, and the sickest bass tone east of the Mississippi (Chewy from the Accused is the only other person I've heard make a bass sound like that), keep in mind that Horrified was recorded a few months BEFORE Reign in Blood. Napalm Death proudly stole riffs from them.
Death's Back From the Dead demo was the only thing that came close to Repulsion. Any metalhead that doesn't own this is a fool. Time to get schooled kiddies.

People usually credit Napalm Death with being the godfathers of grindcore; but this reviewer, for one, doesn't really see how they can do that. After all, it is Repulsion that came before Napalm (heck, they were even a source of inspiration for that band!) And some might wonder just how influential Repulsion can be since they only released one album. But they, thanks to their debut full-length (which was recorded in 1986), "Horrified," are actually enormously influential and important. After all, it is one of the first-ever grindcore albums in existence, and would make Repulsion capable of going on to inspire the next two generations of bands not only in the grindcore (including goregrind), hardcore/crust punk, and death metal genres; but also being extremely influential for the black metal and thrash genres, as well. Heck, there are even some bands out there (see: Black Breath, Six Feet Under, Dismemberment, etc.) that are so heavily inspired by Repulsion, that they adopted one of this Michigan-based quartet's song titles for a moniker of their own group.

But "Horrified" is worth far more than just being an important milestone release. For one, even listeners who have already been subjected to the likes of, say, Assuck, Nasum, Magrudergrind, and/or Noisear should agree that this album remains as intense today as it ever was. (And no matter how many times you listen to it, it never does seem to get any less intense.) This is partially thanks due to the fact that "Horrified" sounds so unique, even with an uncountable number of impersonators flooding the marketplace today. Nobody can seem to get the sound 100% just right that Repulsion have created, here.

And the band might not exactly be technical, but they sure can play their instruments.

The Forefathers of Grindcore and the blast beat, Repulsion are one of the most important bands that no one's ever heard of. The song structures are short and straight forward. It sounds like utter chaos caught on tape but it all melds together coherently and powerfully. The drumming is simply groundbreaking since blast beats were simply non-existent before Horrified. The vocals are edgy and the lyrics are offensive. The guitar work simply shreds. I always touted Napalm Death for being the originals in the genre of grindcore but after finally getting my hands on Horrified it is clear that even ND were greatly inspired by this underground masterpiece. Even down to the way Repulsion scrawled their logo, ND imitated! So anyway, this is an absolute must-own for any metal historian or grindcore afficiando, especially remastered and with the additional disc with rarities and demos all at a great price. Best songs: The Stench of Burning Death, Black Breath, Acid Bath and Maggots in your Coffin. Highly Recommended.
