30 Years Ago: SEPULTURA release Morbid Visions

sepultura-band-1986

Our next LP will be called “Morbid Visions”. It will be 8 songs, one being instrumental. It will be much better recorded; our first one was recorded only on eight tracks, and the songs are all on a higher level, they’re faster and heavier. We’ve got a better production work, so we will sound much bigger on this LP. Late August we started recording, we recorded one week in Sao Paulo, and the album should be out in October.

Released by Cogumelo on this day in 1986. Classic from Brazil, one of the eternal greats!!!

30 Years Ago: KAT release 666 – Polish Metal Classic!

Hard to choose just one from this masterpiece… here’s Czarne Zastępy which also opened the live LP 38 Minutes of Life a year later.

This month marks the anniversary of 666 which is the Polish version of Metal and Hell. M&H was released a month earlier with English language vocals on Ambush Records for the European market. 666 is still the best!

An absolute killer speed / thrash / black metal record!
