The venerable extreme metal compilation from Nuclear Blast, Death …Is Just the Beginning, is back with another volume. Titled MMXVIII, it includes a mix of old and new school death metal.
The Death …Is Just the Beginning series is old. I remember it being recommended by Lonn Friend back in the early 90s when he did a short segment of album recommendations on Headbangers Ball. Friend, for those of you who don’t know, was the editor of Rip Magazine.
Contributors include Benediction, Hypocrisy, Possessed, Immolation, Paradise Lost (not sure why they’re on there …) and the band in today’s featured video, Carcass.
“A Wraith in the Apparatus” is not only on this compilation but also bonus track on Japanese versions of Carcass’ 2013 album, Surgical Steel.
Death …Is Just the Beginning MMXVIII will be out on Oct. 19 and you can pre-order at my link below.
