(I’ll be honest for this : the following quote is from the bio for this LP that’s presented on Bandcamp as a description, and I could not put it in any better way. Thought I should say that before some dick calls me a copying bastard.) “When you talk about the earliest Death Metal bands, we think of SEPULTURA, DEATH, POSSESSED (all stemming from VENOM) right off the top, but there were a few ripping bands that quickly fell into obscurity and TERMINAL DEATH is one of those bands. This is not just an obscure band; they could have been a HUGE Death Metal band if they were signed to the right label back then. They certainly had all of the talent the aforementioned bands did. Their 1985 Demo tape screams with energy and intensity! This is a re-mastered collection of their complete and very short-lived career. The CD booklet is massive with a very in-depth and lengthy interview done by Laurent from Snakepit Magazine. There aren’t that many Death Metal bands can come close to how amazing these songs were.” (Again, not my words. But that greatly describes the LP and I couldn’t find how else to phrase that.) “Terminal Death” had great vocals that were the absolute defining sound for any death metal bands when the genre was still young, and they went very well with the guitars that had that totally raw and energetic feel to them every second of each track (all of which were less than 2:30). And the drums were absolutely vicious to the core without letting up once the song gets going and that’s what made them great. It is an honest shame that this band never took of because almost all of us can admit that Terminal Death would’ve been amazing in the long run. And I’m so thankful for Shadow Kingdom Records for bringing this LP up from the depths and allow us to listen to a true original gem of death metal.
