R.I.P. is the first album released by the Swiss thrash metal trio, Coroner. This album marks the first chapter of the band's progression (thus it is less focused) and is characterized by raw speed and power (save for the two instrumentals), very typical of thrash metal at this time.

Notes[edit]

  • Nosferatu is a synonym for vampire and is the title of film by F.W. Murnau, though it is not known whether this film had a direct influence on Coroner.
  • The intro of "Totentanz" is actually a cover of a bourrée by French composer Robert de Visée (c.1650 - 1725), and was written by A.M. Siegrist.
  • "Nosferatu" is an instrumental.
