Beyond The Gates
Beyond the Gates is the second album by death metal band Possessed. It took a different direction from their debut, Seven Churches. Compared to Seven Churches, Beyond the Gates has a more technical feeling and, due to poor production, a muddy sound. Reception was mixed, with some very disappointed by the album for the sound and production, while others were happy with the new direction of the band. Beyond the Gates became a sign of Possessed's decline, as they only released the EP The Eyes of Horror before they officially disbanded. This became the band’s last full length album, up until the release of their third studio album ‘Revelations of Oblivion’, 33 years later.
The vinyl release of the album featured an enhanced gatefold-style format: the "gates" of the front cover opened outward, exposing several flaps that opened further to reveal a large, nine-panel illustration of a line of demonic creatures approaching over a desert landscape. Lyrics were included on the inner sleeve.
Extreme Metal 101 (Vol. 3)
Tortured Existence is the debut album by New York City thrash metal band Demolition Hammer. It was released the fall of 1990. A video was made for "Infectious Hospital Waste".
Leave Scars is the third studio album released by the American thrash metal band, Dark Angel, released on January 24, 1989. It was their first album with vocalist Ron Rinehart and bassist Mike Gonzalez, and the last to feature guitarist Jim Durkin. Leave Scars was Dark Angel's most successful release, peaking at number 159 on the Billboard 200.
Morbid Tales is the debut album by the Swiss extreme metal band, Celtic Frost, released in November 1984. The first European release on Noise Records was a mini-LP with six tracks, while the American release by Enigma/Metal Blade added two tracks, bringing it to the length of a regular LP.
In 1999 a remastered edition of Morbid Tales was released on CD by Noise Records, which also contained the tracks from their 1985 EP Emperor's Return as well as a 2017 remastered edition released by the same label on CD and Vinyl formats.
War Master is the third album by British death metal band Bolt Thrower. It was recorded at Slaughterhouse studios in September 1990 and produced by Bolt Thrower and Colin Richardson. It was released on Earache Records: Mosh 29 in 1991.
Whereas Realm of Chaos was dominated by grindcore based blasts and riffs, this album abandons most of the grindcore influences for a sound that is more strictly death metal. Moreover, there is more melody in the music and the guitar solos, although some chaotic solos remain. This is also the final Bolt Thrower album to feature the blast beat style of drumming, before it was abandoned and subsequently never used thereafter in the Bolt Thrower discography.
"Cenotaph" is a thematic continuation of the song "World Eater" from the previous record. The closing riff from "World Eater" is the same as the opening riff from "Cenotaph" and also used in "Embers" from "The IVth Crusade" and "Killchain" from "Those Once Loyal".
The album was extensively sampled on Dutch breakcore producer Bong-Ra's album Full Metal Racket, with allusions also including song titles such as "Bloody Cenotaph" and "Jo Bench".
Terrible Certainty (Bonus Track Edition)
Terrible Certainty is the third studio album by German thrash metal band Kreator released in 1987 through Noise Records. It was released on cd, cassette, black vinyl, and as a limited edition red vinyl. The remastered version of 2000 contains the tracks of the 1988 Out of the Dark ... Into the Light EP as bonus tracks.

In League With Satan
The Ten Commandments
The Ten Commandments is the debut studio album by American death metal band Malevolent Creation. It was produced and engineered by Scott Burns.
From Beyond is the debut album by Massacre released in 1991 on Earache Records. The album was re-released with a different cover and the Inhuman Condition EP as bonus tracks.
"Corpsegrinder" was originally recorded by the band, Death, which all members of Massacre have been a part of in the past.
The cover art was painted by Ed Repka and was based on the short story of the same name, written by H. P. Lovecraft.
Formulas Fatal to the Flesh
Formulas Fatal to the Flesh is the fifth full-length studio album by death metal band Morbid Angel. The Satanic themed lyrics of previous albums had been replaced with lyrics about the Old Ones, which would become the primary source of Morbid Angel's lyrical content from this point on. This is the first album to feature singer/bassist Steve Tucker, replacing David Vincent, and has some lyrical content written in Sumerian.
The title refers to the biblical symbol of the Antichrist. The letter "F" is the 6th letter of the alphabet; therefore, it could be read as "6ormulas 6atal to the 6lesh" or 666 for short, code for the number of the Beast.
The tunings for this record as on Covenant and Domination remained E♭ on six string guitar songs, and B♭ on seven stringed guitar songs.
The album saw considerable changes in tone from Domination. Whereas it was more clean and melodic, Formulas is more brutal and powerful. The album is characterized with very fast drum tempos, specially extremely fast blast beat, aggressive riffs with atmospheric solos, and a more daemonic growl from Steve Tucker.
Release From Agony
Release from Agony is the third studio album by German thrash metal band Destruction, released in 1988 by Steamhammer/SPV.
Harmony Corruption is the third studio album by Napalm Death, released in 1990 on Earache Records.
The style of the album was more death metal than grindcore, featuring extremely heavy riffs and deep low vocals.
The album was recorded at Morrisound Recording in Tampa, Florida, where since many classic death metal albums have been recorded. Florida death metallers Glen Benton from Deicide and John Tardy from Obituary were guest vocalists for the song "Unfit Earth".
The tracks from the Mentally Murdered EP, are included at the end of early editions of the CD, though versions now in print feature only the standard eleven tracks.
It is the first Napalm Death album to feature Mark "Barney" Greenway as the vocalist and Americans Mitch Harris and Jesse Pintado as guitarists, and the last with Mick Harris on drums.
Richard Johnson, a member of Agoraphobic Nosebleed, says that the wide distribution of Harmony Corruption ensured that it had a greater impact on the American grindcore scene than earlier Napalm Death efforts.
Their third UK chart entry, this album peaked at number 67.
Limited vinyl pressing included the bonus LP with live set recorded at I.C.A.
Severed Survival (Bonus Tracks)
Severed Survival is the debut album by Autopsy released in 1989. This album somewhat continues in the style of Reifert's former band Death. Lyrically the band thrives heavily on horror and gore concepts; nevertheless these are not inspired directly by horror movies, although the title track is based on Stephen King's short story "Survivor Type." The album was very influential for future death metal acts such as Cannibal Corpse, Entombed, and Dismember. It was also a pioneer of gore lyrics. The album features Steve DiGiorgio on bass.
Various re-releases exist with different bonus tracks and bonus CDs. Also a different cover exists for this album, which depicts the point of view of the person receiving the autopsy.
The album is notable for its bass sound which was mixed much higher than all the other tracks. The drumming was also poorly recorded, with the kick drum almost inaudible.
To coincide with the album's 20th anniversary, Peaceville Records released a special two-disc edition of Severed Survival on February 23, 2009.
Realm of Terror
Hate, Fear, and Power
Hate, Fear and Power is the second studio album by American thrash metal band Hirax, released in August 1986. The band considers this a full-length despite the extremely short length.
Spectrum of Death (Extended Edition)
Spectrum of Death is the debut album by American band Morbid Saint. It was recorded at Opus Recording in Gurnee, Illinois. It was produced by Eric Greif and engineered by Al Pangeliron. It is often hailed as one of the best thrash metal albums ever made, as well as one of the fastest and most abrasive in the genre; which led Morbid Saint being compared to other thrash metal bands like Kreator, Slayer, Sadus, and Demolition Hammer.
Power And Pain
Power and Pain is the debut album from New Jersey thrash metal band, Whiplash. It was released in 1986 on Roadrunner Records and was followed up by 1987's Ticket to Mayhem.
In 1998, Displeased Records rereleased Power and Pain, which included their second album, Ticket to Mayhem.
The album features members of New York City bands, Carnivore and Agnostic Front, on backing vocals.
Spiritual Healing is the third studio album by American death metal band Death, released on February 16, 1990, by Combat Records. This album was out of print, but it has been reissued by Relapse Records as of November 2012. It is the band's only album to feature both guitarist James Murphy and bassist Terry Butler and the last to feature drummer Bill Andrews.
This is the first of Death's albums to show Schuldiner's lyrics moving away from the gore and horror themes of previous works, focusing instead on themes of society including abortion, genetics, and televangelism, a direction that would be further refined on 1991's Human album. The musical content is more obviously melodic, a facet highlighted by James Murphy's characteristic lead guitar playing. The members of Death and their manager/co-producer Eric Greif stayed in a single motel room at the Safari Inn, near Busch Gardens, for the entire six weeks the album was recorded and mixed, although bassist Terry Butler and drummer Bill Andrews frequently went home as they lived in the Tampa area.
This was the final Death album cover painted by Ed Repka.

It was released through Earache Records on 18 October 1993. The album was recorded at Parr Street Studios, Liverpool from 18 May – 21 June 1993.
The sculpture depicted in the cover art, "Life Support 1993," was designed by H.R. Giger, and is an update of a sculpture he created in the late 1960s. The video for the song "Heartwork" features a real-life interpretation of the sculpture, including a human welded as a part of it. The album was reissued as a Dualdisc on 2 June 2008.
Michael Amott left the band after the recording of the album before founding Spiritual Beggars, and was temporarily replaced by Mike Hickey. In The Pathologist's Report, Bill Steer says Heartwork is his favourite Carcass album.

The 2005 re-release includes a bonus CD of the Thrash of the Titans concert, recorded August 11, 2001.
Spirit In Flames
Power from Hell
Power from Hell is the debut studio album by English thrash metal band Onslaught, released in February 1985. Apparently confusion has arisen as to who coined the term Death Metal, as it was Onslaught who wrote their song 'Death Metal' in early 1984 and recorded the album version later in the same year, Possessed who recorded their song entitled "Death Metal" on their 1984 demo tape of the same name. "Power from Hell" was reissued in 1996 by Powerage Records, again in 2005 by Blackend Records and received a full remaster by Jacob Hansen for the 2012 release on AFM Records; the 2012 release rectifies the track listing problem encountered on previous releases and has revamped artwork with liner notes by Steve Grice.

Dreamweaver (Expanded Edition)
Dreamweaver is the second full-length album by the British thrash metal band Sabbat, released in 1989
Dreamweaver is a concept album based on the 1983 book by British psychologist Brian Bates - The Way of Wyrd: Tales of an Anglo-Saxon Sorcerer. The album demonstrated singer and lyricist Martin Walkyier's deep held beliefs in Wyrdism, Anglo-Saxon spirituality, Celtic mysticism and paganism. Musically the album reflected composer Andy Sneap's predilection at that time for increasingly lengthy and progressively technical thrash metal songs. Shortly before the album was recorded, former Holosade guitarist Simon Jones was recruited into the band as an additional lead and rhythm guitarist.
The album has come to be regarded as a classic of the thrash metal genre, described variously upon its re-release in 2007 as "essential listening", a "staggering work of total excellence", a "seminal chapter in the evolution of British metal" and one of the "finest metal albums ever made".
Cursed is the first full-length release by the German band Morgoth. It was released in 1991 by Century Media.

Enslaving the Masses
The Laws of Scourge
The Laws of Scourge is the second studio album by the Brazilian extreme metal band Sarcófago. It was on this album that the band's lyrical content shifted from Satanism to more realistic subject matter; "Midnight Queen" is about a prostitute, while "Screeches From The Silence" is about living life in a care-free manner. The album also marks a change in musical style, with the band playing clearer, more proficient and thrash-influenced death metal as opposed to the lo-fi black/death metal present on I.N.R.I.. This was also the last full-length record to feature a human drummer, as from Hate onwards, the band would use a drum machine.
