Messiah - Hymn to Abramelin

This release embodies all that is right with metal. It's dirty, extreme, chaotic, terribly played, and from a time when all a band cared about was trying to be faster and more aggressive than the next. Take Bathory's early stuff, mix it with In the Sign of Evil, throw in some cocaine, and you've got an idea of what this album is like. Some of the most possessed vocals ever heard in the 80s. This band should have been as big as their compatriots Celtic Frost, but sadly they went down a route to playing third rate death metal, and then offed themselves.
