LIVING DEATH - Back to the Weapons LP
White with black splatter vinyl with insert and poster. Limited 350 copies
Living Death truly jumped into full gear with their mini album ‘Back To The Weapons’. While the production is not too great, the style of these tracks is fully consistent and seamless. On this release Living Death’s variation of thrash metal started to become remarkably frantic and intense, complete with some of the nastiest vocals ever heard in the genre. The creaky vocal output really catches your attention, but it perfectly supports the general mood of this album. As for the music, it’s maybe not that original or anything, but the energetic execution makes the songs appear distinctive enough – plus the fact that the band can make even simple riffs fly in a captivating manner. Even with only a few tracks, Back To The Weapons gives a fair demonstration of Living Death’s fastest take on thrash metal. Most countries who released this vinyl released it with a white sticker over the head/knife of the decapitation scene.
