Awesome music but the production ruins it. the difference between the 2 versions of Final Massacre is really huge...
Υou've sold your human essence to the cold world of dead and empty things... You're SOLD!

Much too long and repetitive. This album does contain several classic Vader songs, although they should have cut several of these songs out completely.

A Nice Guy
They are a great and very consistent band, and I still say this debut is one of their best works, the sound is like a great combination of Slayer and Morbid Angel, I hear obvious influences from both of those bands.

The vocals could have been a wee bit harsher imo, they closely resemble thrash metal vocals, but understandably that gives this band a rather unique style compared to other death metal bands.And although the riffs are fairly repetitive throughout, they are of excellent quality.
