DECEASED should need no introduction, nor should Luck of the Corpse: originally released in 1991, the band’s debut album was the first full-length to be released on a fledgling Relapse Records. The album was out of print on vinyl for a long, long time, until longtime fans HELLS HEADBANGERS came along to release it on picture-disc format in 2009. Ten years later, the time is more than right to bring Luck of the Corpse back from the grave – and it’s still as rottenly fresh today as it was back then, a manic and crazed and ever-addicting long-form introduction to DECEASED’s singular Death Metal from the Grave, which has gone through a number of transitions but still holds strong today. Up the tombstones, once again!
Hells Headbangers (USA), 2023.
