Rigor Mortis Demo(Not to be confused w/ Rigor Mortis that later became Immolation)

I'm falling behind with uploading/promoting local and foreign underground releases which was my main objective, I've got some Karimlan,Storm Troopers,Rush IxDx,Throw,Tinner,Dawn,Prellude,Anihilated,Storming Steels,War All The Time,Psychosis,Half The Battle stuffs to go up once my timing is good and the neighbor's wi-fi is up, still waiting.....(only way to upload fast and 100%).

Anyways for now this b-movie horror/gore inspired classic demo will do.

1. Reanimator (3:40)
2. Slow Death (6:07)
3. Die in Pain (4:07)
4. Foaming at the Mouth (3:56)
5. Condemned to Hell (2:06)
6. Six Feet Under (5:53) 

7. The Troll (4:08)
This is what I've been listening to repeatedly for the past few weeks, this and maybe Motorhead.
I've been hounding at Bruce Corbitt(Vocalist) of this old school classic 80's thrash band to hand over his copy of this demo hahaha, of course I was only joking when sending him messages about it, but in truth I was DEAD serious.

 What we have here is something that will only happen if you have a bunch of young gory b-movie horror fanatics watching movies like Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Re-Animator on a daily basis that have a wild imagination. being high on weed and drunk on beer at the same time and getting their ideas on paper,writing some ripping fast riffs,practicing on their brothers drum set endlessly and just fucking playing for passion while being brutal,stupid and fun(read Brutal not br00htal) at the same time.

In my opinion this is the best release in the whole Rigor Mortis discography albeit a short one,production raw and flawless at the same time. I can't find one thing to bitch about and that's pretty rare for a demo. the vocals of Bruce Corbitt ranges from clean,shouted, to high pitched shrieks and frantic harsh screams that sounds soo eargasmic and something I always aspired and try to do. Mike Scaccia's playing is just fast as hell and impressively tight it really makes the songs with its high speed tremolo picking and face ripping qualities. 7 tracks of just solidly head-bangingly great no-gimmick thrashing metal(other would say R.M. is Death Thrash but well haha, we all have our own opinions.)

I've played this release 21 times(and counting) according to my notepad(which I use to mark how many times I sit through a release one time for each "X") It just can't be compared to any other demo released in 86! fogeddaboudit!

Others would punch me in the face when I say the demo is better than the full length but that's just a testament to my quirkiness...its just a lot of stuff changed when the full length was done and I can't adjust to it cause alot of their shit changed come full length.(production,vocal delivery & phrasing,speed, musical execution, drum approach etc.)

Hahaha, this is a pretty long and senseless fanboy rant........just listen to it! and be pummeled to the ground by the bloody fierce force of Rigor Mortis!

He! Has! Conquered Brain Death! Welcome back to life!

I'm even thinking of getting this tattoed somewhere on my arm.......really really down on getting it done.
