Released in 1985, Seven Churches is considered by many to be the first ever Death Metal album. Possessed, a 4-piece from San Francisco, built upon the raw energy of Thrash and mutated it into an altogether darker, nastier beast. This is an album which is rightfully revered and respected as an all-time classic - just under 40 minutes of primal savagery, ending with the genre-defining anthem Death Metal.

Rating: 9 This album is fucking great. I remember finding a tape with this album on (courtesy of my father) and listening to it at 9 years old. 'The Exorcist' is one of the best death metal songs i've ever heard, and those drums are absolutely killer. A couple of weak(er) songs on here, but it doesn't take away from the fact that this really is a legendary album.

  Its one of the most influential metal albums up to date. Its the very first death metal album and might very well be one of the best in the underground scene.

  Fallen Angel is my favourite song on this album.

  Legendary album. Possessed were definitely one of the pioneers of old school death metal. Its a pity that they didnt manage to record more albums.

  That last riff in 'Holy Hell' is more strange than any Voivod riff I have ever heard.
