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 arent that many Death Metal bands can come close to how amazing these songs were. This collection is another snapshot of that amazing early Slayer-esque Death Metal. Co-founder Shaun Glass, whom also co-found SINDROME later joined the more well known classic Death Metal band BROKEN HOPE in the early 1990s. Shadow Kingdom Records teamed up with Hells Headbangers Records to release this lost gem as an LP. If youre into vinyl, This is nothing short of a glorified presentation for such an unknown band. Also there was a myth on the first CD release of an '86 Demo that was thought to have existed, but does not exist. The '86 Demo tracks were the same exact Rehearsal tracks from December 11, 1985, but just in a different order. So if you have the CD version you can just stop the CD after track 14. We just want to put that information out there to make sure anyone getting the VINYL version doesn't think we left any tracks off. You have everything on the VINYL version + a much bigger and better layout.
