Overview:

Nuclear Blast’s involvement with death metal hails back to the late 80s and early 90s explosion of this heavy and deadly genre. The ‘Death… is Just The Beginning’ compilations paved the way for many soon to become legendary acts such as PUNGENT STENCH, DISMEMBER, HYPOCRISY, KATAKLYSM, etc. While the genre suffered what some might call a stagnation somewhere in the mid to late 90s, the genre as a whole never went away and Nuclear Blast continued to release quality death metal in the form of bands such as HYPOCRISY, KATAKLYSM, DECAPITATED, etc..
And just like with the undead… they always come back! Nuclear Blast is proud to announce the unearthing of this legendary series simply titled ‘MMXVIII’.
Amongst it’s brutal contents are demo songs from UK veterans BENEDICTION and seminal Bay Area lords POSSESSED, and if these tracks are an indicator of what to expect on their new albums, every death metal fan will be in for a head-crushing treat! Besides these demo songs, you will also find rare tracks from IMMOLATION, KATAKLYSM, HYPOCRISY, BRUJERIA and PARADISE LOST to name but a few as well as new tracks from AENIMUS and INSIDIOUS DISEASE! - Brace yourself as death metal has never been this deadly.
