One of these bands is Necrophagia, whose debut Season of the Dead came out few months before Scream Bloody Gore. Actually, Necrophagia had recorded in 1986 a first full-length, Ready for Death which saw the light only in 1990, and the style offered by this album was clearly death metal. But Season of the Dead, which is theoretically considered as the first death metal album of all times by some people, actually needs some more caution about genre labels
A macabre mixture of horror and pain, Necrophagia’s 1987 release is essential listening for any fans of the genre. There’s a little bit of hometown pride for me on this one. I grew up in Wellsville Ohio, home to Frank Pucci (aka Killjoy) and remember the stories told about him and his devil band to me when I was all of seven or eight years old. Of course that band was Necrophagia, a pioneer in what would come to be known as death metal. The album starts off with an eerie acoustic piece leading up to what can only be described as a 70’s horror movie soundtrack. After about three and a half minutes of introduction the blood begins to flow. Heavy, thrash laden riffs, double bass blast beats and signature time changes are all here in abundance. It has those great early to mid 80’s tones that were just so damned heavy for the time.
