Technical experimentation in death metal began in the late 1980s and early 1990s by bands such as Death, Atheist and Cynic.<ref name=paradox>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> In 1990, Nocturnus released their debut album, The Key, which was followed by Sarcófago's third album, The Laws of Scourge, featuring a change in their musical style from black metal/thrash metal to technical death metal. Atheist's second album, Unquestionable Presence; Pestilence's third album, Testimony of the Ancients; and Death's fourth album, Human, were all released the very next year. Human and later Death albums have proven especially influential on later '90s technical death metal bands.<ref name=paradox /> In 1991, New York's grindcore-influenced Suffocation released their debut album Effigy of the Forgotten, which focused on pairing speed and brutality with a "sophisticated" sense of songwriting. The album subsequently became groundbreaking in the genre.<ref name="Allmusic EOTF">Rivadavia, Eduardo. Effigy of the Forgotten. Allmusic. Retrieved 2009-08-15.</ref>
