Master – S/T (Reissue from Doomentia)
Master’s 1990 debut is straightforward, filthy fun. One for fans of Venom, this is a raging and ugly blast of brutality with just enough creativity, skill and pacing to stop it becoming boring or one-dimensional. I’ve been listening to quite a few Death Metal classics recently and I’d put this near the top of the heap. And it has one of the best Black Sabbath covers I have ever heard. I’d happily listen to these guys bulldozer their way through the entire Sabbath catalogue!
