The split to end all splits. This classic from 1997 is some of the heaviest sludge death of all time. Noothgrush's side is obviously deep and pained. But it is really the setup for the second side by Japan's Corrupted who lay down nearly 20 minutes of pure hell with just an insanely sick guitar tone. One of the most influential metal bands not on Bandcamp, tracking down Corrupted's other albums/splits/singles can be challenging. But it is so worth the time as "Inactive" shows. Essential.
Favorite track: Corrupted - Inactive.
