Outrage (Ger) ca 1985/86
Black metal is the game I play
'cause no one show me the right way
I am a bloody Antichrist, only believe in bad
Spit at the church, Evil I get

Blasphemer. . . .

Rites of death, Return to Hell
I am Satan's child, attack you with Spell

I turn the cross upside down
and read Satanic Bible with fucking grown
my life begins at midnight twelve
masturbate to kill myself

Blasphemer. . . .

I love to drink my own blood
my sin is my life in a war with god
I talk to the demons night tonight
make love and black masses in a dark shadow light

Blasphemer. . . .

Did you know that Bathory rehearsed for the first time in 16th of March 1983? (Brain Damage #2)

Outtake from the very first Bathory photo session.

What a killer recording. My fave off this disc would be "Restoration of the Infernal Kingdom" track... Genocidio-like cannibalistic deathnoise. I love stuff like that.

Infestation Of Death

That legendary act Massacre from Florida. "From Beyond" could have been easily released in 1986 if record companies would have been more interested in death metal sounds. I mean the band was ready. Just listen to their 1985/86 recordings... especially this "Corpseginder" bootleg live LP (live set from 20.12.1986) is pleasure to listen to ("Corpsegrinder" that ancient DEATH track from 1984!). 1985 3 track demo too.

Side note: Watching from distance it seems to me that guitarist Allen West had very good influence on different bands in mid 80s. In 1985 he was in Massacre and listen to their disgustingly HEAVY sound (HH/Frostish) on 1985 demo. Allen is/was not present on 1986 demo any more and this demo sounds different (crystal sharp instead that old heaviness). Instead Allen went to Executioner / Xecutioner in 1986 and listen to Xecutioner recordings from 1986! Again this HEAVY HH/Frostish sound. In 1985 (before Allen joined in) Executioner was more thrash band than death band). And Allen was also on Xecutioner debut album recording made in 1988, which was released in 1989 under Obituary "Slowly We Rot" name. Again, Allen was not on "Cause Of Death" and this album was let down ( 3 good tracks (including cover song) and others were fillers to my ears). so, in my eyes and ears Allen was that evil mastermind in ancient Massacre and Xecutioner times. Both acts had killer vocalists too of course!
