Terminal Death - Terminal Death

Terminal Death
Terminal Death

POSSESSED. DEATH. SEPULTURA. These guys are some of the most influential death metal bands ever, shaping thrash metal into what we came to know as death metal, with its inumerable spin-offs and evolutions. What that has to do with TERMINAL DEATH?

Well, despite their very short career and obscure status, TERMINAL DEATH deserve to be counted among those aforementioned pioneers. Formed in '84, these guys released two demos before parting ways in '86.

22 years later Shadow Kingdom Records present to us their “Faces of Death” demo from '85, along with two rehersals from the 85-86 era. Besides the repetitiviness that comes with similar releases and the unbelievably bad sound quality, TERMINAL DEATH's tunes have exactly what any self-respecting death meatlhead wants.

Unrelentless protodeath/thrash songs, showing that it's a pity TERMINAL DEATH never actually took off the ground like their aforementioned contemporaries did. Add to this three great previously unreleased tracks, it makes the whole endeavor even more worthwhile.

Because music, as any creation, should be judged within the context of its era, TERMINAL DEATH is a great release, even if 20 years late. If you are one of those guys that still hear to POSSESSED's “Death Metal” and get the chills, you won't be disappointed. If not, what can I say? Maybe you'd come to like it, if you can get past the shity production.
