Sophomore effort from Bay Area death/thrash/speed heroes Possessed. I offered their first album back here in an anti-Primus double feature, and this one is every bit as evil, intense, and crippling. These guys were mere teenagers when they formed this band, but you'd never know from listening. All kinds of ridiculous shredding, with a sweet Satan/robot cover painted by the one and only Ed Repka to boot. The original packaging was an elaborate gatefold affair, which I wish I could upload for you guys as well. But unfortunately, we're at least 5 years away from being able to transmit matter via the internet. Bummer.
