This release is housed in a thick digipak with 4 discs (147 tracks; over 4 hours of music), external booklet with tons of posters, pictures, info and slipcase/O-card.

A new slasher from the polish kings of sonic torture. After many awesome singles, a split cd with malignant tumour and an album like "tnyribal" that came out as one of the most brutalizing grind death-bombs ever heard by human ear, here's the new step in their mission of devastation... A complete return to their gory origins. Downtuned, growled to the bone old-school grind ferociousness with that gore approach they handle with supreme ability. If you loved their split cd with m.t., this is something very close to it, just with an impressive technical improvement and a ways better production. If you wanna be brought back to a revisited dimension of late '80s gore heaviness... Sick harmonized vocals, corrosive fast drums and pounding full-on-bass guitar erosion... Here you get it all at its best. Viva el polish gore!
The masters of gore, the kings of grind are back on scene and we're here back with reedition of their cult Ep's and amazing "The Greatest Shits" mini CD on one CD "The Lethal Collection"!!! All 30 tracks are remastered, complete artwork is brand new too...DEAD INFECTION's classics just grind, grind, grind!

Second Blood full length album... after the cult "Impulse to destroy", they left grindcore, and turned to brutal death metal, with a few elements of doom and grind... The sound production is very good, and songs are very well composed. The whole album is brutal, catchy, with a doomy feeling through low-tuned guitars, a grindcore touch through harsh drumming, and brutal death metal growling vocals. This album is very well done, a very good Blood album...

OBTRUNCATION was formed in 1989 in the Rotterdam area in Holland. They recorded their first demo "Sanctum's Disruption" during December 1990. Within no time they established a reputation among the fastest & most brutal bands of the underground death metal-scene. Early 1991, Lawrence Payne (Phlebotomized) joined OBTRUNCATION and added one of the most intense growling vocals ever heard.
In 1992, OBTRUNCATION recorded their second demo "Sphere of the rotting" which was very well received by the fans because of the hyper-speed tempos and its intense brutality. This demo still is labeled as the most brutal demo’s ever emerged from the Dutch death metal scene.

A great experience was for example the mini-tour in Sicily (summer 1991). In 1999 the 12 track Obtruncation debut full length was released on a small Dutch underground label. And now Obtruncation is back (never splitted up actually, always rehearsed and played gigs here and there over the years), deadlier then ever with their second full length album. The new album features Obtruncation’s trademarks sincd the early 90’s: hyper speed blasts, ultra
MEFISTO started back in 1984 under the name Torment. Along with Obscurity, the two were the first Swedish extreme bands to follow mighty BATHORY. Both bands were of superior quality, however after just 2 demos, both folded as they were simply too early with their extreme music at the time and getting no support.
MEFISTO since gained a cult status, heavily influencing the upcoming extreme music underground, especially the local Stockholm Death Metal scene. Featuring mega-talented guitarist Omar Ahmed, who delivered tight riffs and great solos, played out in a classic yet extreme manner, that to this day sounds fresh and relevant. Roberto Granath delivered violent drumming like only a few have before, and the singer Sandro Cajander did much deeper and harsher vocals than Bathory or Venom at that time. This deep / harsh style was later further developed by for example LG Petrov of Nihilist (Entombed).
Extensive liner notes from Jon ‘Metalion’ Kristiansen from Norway’s legendary Slayer Mag. And exclusive liner notes from the Mefisto members! Album cover by Roberto Toderico (Soulburn, Hexx, Asphyx, Exoto).
