LIVING DEATH from Velbert, (Northern) Germany was formed in the year 1980 and has been amongst the earliest german, european Thrash Metal, Speed Metal bands. As one the first european Thrash Metal bands they managed to release an full album on vinyl, „Vengeance Of Hell“ saw the light of day in 1983 and back then it was compared with the US heavy weights SLAYER and METALLICA. After their second album „Metal Revolution“ and a 12″ MLP called „Watch Out !“ (both from 1985) they finally released the „Back To The Weapons“ MLP (the release offered here), which at that time only was available in a censored version (with a sticker on the front cover).
Although LIVING DEATH was / is one of the pioneering german Thrash Metal, Speed Metal bands, they never were able to reach the same status as other german acts like KREATOR, SODOM, DESTRUCTION, … . A lot of Thrash fanatics didn´t like the high pitched voice of the vocalist, unique for shure, but not bearable for a lot listeners and other contemporary Metal acts have been faster, more brutal, which attracted many, many Eighties Metal fans in the Early, Mid Eighties (a confusing time where young people were trapped in between the Cold War and fast, technical, digital revolution, the perfect time for fast and aggressive sound). You may love LIVING DEATH, or you may hate them, but it´s good to see that this classic piece of Eighties Speed Metal, Thrash Metal got finally re-released.

The first pressing of LIVING DEATH´s mini album „Back To The Weapons“ was released in the year 1986 on AAARRG RECORDS from Germany.

This edition here is limited to 350 copies on White / Black Splatter vinyl, it comes in a heavy high quality jacket, with printed innersleeve and poster.
