|LIVING DEATH VENGEANCE OF HELL Limited Reissue CLEAR/RED SPLATTERED VINYL LP
According to public opinion, Kreator, Destruction, Sodom (and maybe Tankard) were laying the foundations for German Thrash Metal in the mid-1980s. There's surely (at least) one band missing: Living Death (from Velbert, a bleak industrial town in the heart of the Ruhr area). Similar to Swiss legends Hellhammer, Living Death were just a bit too extreme, for fans and press alike. As a result, their early efforts gained extremely bad reviews – only a small cult following understood what the band was trying to achieve.
Despite being far from polished, stripped to the bone Thrash Metal numbers such as "My Victim", "Heavy Metal Hurricane", "Hellpike" or the title track "Vengeance of Hell" stood the test of time. Which proves once and for all that in 1984 Living Death were far ahead of their time. It took the music world 30 years to catch up with them ...
