Morpheus Descends

Morpheus Descends (initially known as just Morpheus) was one of the early New York death metal bands, and as such is still referenced as an influence by later bands to the scene. Ultimately they were a step behind the mainstays of the scene (such as Suffocation, Immolation, Incantation, and others) in terms of popularity and longevity, but they deserve to be mentioned in the same breath, as they had the grindy, twisted, old-school death metal style nailed on their debut Ritual Of Infinity, one of the better signings of the cult indie death label JL America. The members have scattered to various bands such as Deadspeak, Mausoleum, and others.
