1988. Rigor Mortis 

is the debut album by band Rigor Mortis.


 in production and guitar-style. Guitarist Mike Scaccia (whose talents would later be tragically wasted with band Ministry) carries his band through 10 scorching fast songs of proto - thrash/speed metal. Scaccia’s heavy use of tremlo picking and single-string-riffs give Rigor Mortis an incredibly unique sound. He also strays away from traditional power-chord & “chug” riffs that were so prevalent in thrash-metal of the 80s.

The band broke up in 1991, but reformed in 2005. On January 5th, 2013, the band’s frontman Bruce Corbitt announced that Rigor Mortis had split up permanently, following the death of their guitarist Mike Scaccia on December 23rd, 2012.
