Deus Ex Machina - s/t. 1993 Italy

I feel sometimes that this, their second offering, is the forgotten work in Deus Ex Machina's canon. But much of their live repertoire is taken from this work, proving that in some ways, the album features their strongest material from a compositional standpoint. The execution isn't as crisp, and the sound quality isn't dynamic (a bit of a flat digital sound - typical of early 1990s albums). Singer Piras demonstrates here what a force he was to become. A very good album that has aged well and I feel an improvement on their chaotic and unfocused debut.
