Timeless classic and an excellent pressing. Gnawing midrangey guitar tone, clear and raw pure sound. Remaster is very polished sounding and has all the midrange sucked out of it, very scooped in comparison to the original, loses that old school vibe.

epic classic of Metal that still has not been surpassed . Best elements of Thrash ,Doom, and maybe Black Metal with a truly atmospheric avant. edge. Chainsaw guitar sound like no one else could recreate . one of my fav's still after all these years. A must listen for any Metal fan that (if possible??)never heard this, and if you haven't and you were around in the 80's listening to Metal, put away the goddamned Poison, Metallica and Motley Crue and get into some real Metal!!

I bought this for the cover art which is still one of my all-time favourites and was very pleasantly surprised to find something inside that was truly in 1985 in a class of its own and without peers. No other band sounded even remotely like this and Necromantical Screams truly sounded as if they had lowered a mic. into some remote corner of Hell and recorded the results. Even my grandmother loved it and said it would "scare the you-know-what" out of her bridge club! This is a must-own for anyone that wants to claim they have a complete collection of Metal history 6 out 5 stars...a masterpiece!
