Calls From The Beyond

Rated 3.78/5 (75.56%) (9 Votes)

Yeah, this is the shit. Megaslaughter were a Swedish band from the heyday of Death Metal, back in the late 80s, and this was their one and only full-length album. "Calls From The Beyond" is a meaty slice of old-fashioned Death, flavored with a slight touch of Thrash and then blistered to perfection by a grungy, underground recording job. There isn't really a whole lot more to say about this except: rules. Nothing groundbreaking or inventive, just visceral and mean. The drummer here would go on to play in both Hammerfall and Lost Horizon, but that's about the only brush this band will have with enduring fame. Underground, underrated, and overlooked. A Death Metal gem.
