For about two years now Death has been the most popular band of the Underground scene and now at last their debut CD has been released!
"Scream Bloody Gore" is the album Possessed should have been making after "Seven Churches"!!!

The production and teamwork are extremely good for death metal, which give songs like "Infernal Dead", "Zombie Ritual", "Evil Dead" and "Baptized In Blood" an extra dimension. This album just is too heavy for words!!!

The, too low tuned, guitar of Chuck Schuldiner sounds fucking heavy, and drummer Chris Reifert is the best thing that ever happened to the band! My favorite song is the title track, but I could just as easily have picked one of the other nine songs off the album. If there's any band on this planet playing real death metal then it's Death!

Every trasher, respecting him/herself, should buy this record. To continue my tradition of giving not too high notes in a scale from 1 to 10, I'm giving a 10! What else is there to do?
