4.0 out of 5 stars Back From Beyond ... and Kam Lee was left behind 1 April 2014
By Donald Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl
When From Beyond dropped in 1991 , I was in my early teens and death metal was beginning to spread it's infection in full force from Florida and beyond. I picked up Massacre's debut album . While I enjoyed it , I didn't find it too memorable or groundbreaking in contrast to my favorite bands Death, Napalm Death , Obituary , Deicide , Cannibal Corpse, etc. When the word was out that Massacre was returning with a new full length , I must admit I was curious but not too excited. I listened to the song As We Wait To Die on-line and thought it was pretty brutal , so I decided to see what the rest of the album had to offer . I'm not going to compare this incarnation of Massacre to the original lineup , because they are two different animals . From Beyond was a different place, different time and stands on its own merits . This new album carries the old Massacre sound with purity, integrity and a modern upgrade . It's a solid slab of old school death metal, nothing more nothing less. Rick Rozz tears through riffs and solos that harken back to Death's Leprosy and old Slayer , while Terry Butler's bass grumbles like a thick cement mixer . Instead of sounding like Barney Greenway ( like Kam Lee did ) , Ed Webb's vocal lacerations and bellows sounds akin to George Fisher and Kyle Symons ( ex-Hate Plow/Malevolent Creation). The new drummer is a solid addition to the fold , too. This album most reminds of Malevolent Creation's The Will To Kill with some Grave's You'll Never See influence , tainted with old Death and Slayer . It may be derivative , unoriginal and slightly generic in contrast to the upper tier death metal bands, but it is a plausible return to form . Lyrically , the themes deal with apocalypse, religion , war and serial killers . It's an enjoyable listen but it could have been shortened by about 4 or 5 songs and some of the songs bleed into each other . The mid-paced songs also bog the album down with monotony. I guess Massacre are making up for lost time . This is another solid comeback album, perhaps not as impressive as the return of Asphyx, Broken Hope or Carcass . Quality-wise it is on par with recent Malevolent Creation or Grave.
1.0 out of 5 stars Far From Beyond A Inhumanly Boring Promise 30 July 2014
By Tyranium Nektorflosshead - Published on Amazon.com
This is such a disappointing release from Massacre I mean where do I begin after waiting 20 years for this man I am bummed.First of all we all know Kam Lee is not present yes he was the vocal sound of Massacre but I don't think he would of done this release anyways.The problems I have after all this time Rick Rozz has not learned how to even do a guitar solo cmon dude 20 years and you cant give us a guitar solo without all this whammy bar non sense.He has to be the worst solo player in history. The songs are boring I mean just boring repetition galore they all for the most part sound the same. The production is not bad but its missing a little punch there is no fullness to it the drumming is boring nothing spectacular.Bill Andrews was killer on From Beyond his style was great for Massacre.The first song was just a bad way to start off the album the second song which should of been the opener smokes though.Terry Butler could have had some input on this why he thought this material was worth being a part of shocks me.Here I am giving a bad review to a band that made one of the most ICONIC death metal releases ever made in history.Now the Death cover song... Aw jesus,folks how do I explain this.Chuck must be just begging to come back from the dead and smack Rick Rozz in his fat face and force feed him a pork chop he can choke on.THEY HAD NO RIGHT DOING THIS TO CHUCK.I bet Kam Lee thought this was a bag of crap as well.They ruin Mutilation, it sucks, you might as well just skip over it or wipe your butt with it after a bad day on the crapper and to re record the song Corpsegrinder um... I wont go there. How can Century Media release this album thinking its a great comeback,Century Media needs to fire some people behind this brilliant idea. It lists bonus songs that are not on there you need the import deluxe version gee thanks for the manufacturing screw up.Bottom line if you are expecting another From Beyond or Inhuman Condition you will be disgusted with this. This is more like a follow up to Promise I think.All of this hype and this is the best they can give us?????

4.0 out of 5 stars Death Metal Veterans Return 1 April 2014
By J. Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl
The affectionately remembered, if not universally revered, Massacre returns in 2014 with a comeback album almost twenty years in the making. I admit I never listened to these guys back in the '90's, but I've been giving them a lot of attention leading up to this new release. Their debut, “From Beyond,” is a bit of a historic stand-alone, the one death metal album that the band formerly known as 4/5 of Death put out after Chuck shuffled his line-up following“Leprosy,” and again after “Spiritual Healing.” Rick Rozz, Terry Butler, Kam Lee, and Bill Andrews did this album, then a pretty good EP a year later called “Inhuman Condition,” then (as I've recently learned) recorded one of the most hated metal albums ever, 1996's “Promise.” It seems that people absolutely despise that album, which really isn't very good.

Finally, Rick Rozz and Terry Butler have decided to, at the very least, replace “Promise” as the lasting legacy of Massacre. “Back From Beyond” finds them thrashing it out like it was 1991 all over again, playing a powerful blend of old-school Florida death metal and thrash. Fans of “From Beyond” will be disappointed not to hear Kam Lee's vocals, but his replacement, Ed Webb, is an acceptable death metal vocalist, with a mixture of highs, lows, screeches, and growls. The drums and bass are meaty, the guitar tone is thick, and it's basically an average to above-average standard death metal album. It doesn't quite reach the level of today's best in the genre like Cannibal Corpse, Hail of Bullets, or Deicide, but it's on par with Malevolent Creation, and surely better than Morbid Angel's recent techno-death outing. Even if not a masterpiece, it will leave Massacre fans with a much better taste in their mouths than “Promise.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Crushing 20 April 2014
By esthomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I seriously don't think there are any new metal bands coming out anymore since all I ever see are bands of the past reuniting. I guess depending on your point of view that could be a good thing or a bad thing. For me it's mostly good due to the fact that what new bands there are just don't have the spirit of those from the past. Of course not all of the bands that reformed released anything worth hearing. I do have to say that the reformation of Autopsy, Carcass, and Massacre are definitely appreciated. Of the three bands mention, I personally think the new albums they have released have not only matched the spirit of previous efforts, but also in many ways surpassed their predecessors in skill and heaviness."Back From Beyond" is a prime example.

I don't expect everyone to love "Back From Beyond" for a number of reasons. The 1st is the absence of Kam Lee. Granted, I am also mildly disappointed he is not singing on this record. On the other hand, their new singer is definitely a nice fit. Just like Kam Lee, his vocals can be clearly understood. The only real difference is that the new singer doesn't stand out as much. Kam Lee had a style all his own. A style that I have not heard replicated. Either way, the vocals are really good on this release.

The 2nd reason is that "Back From Beyond" is somewhat of a musical departure from their previous two releases. Much of their core style of song writing is there; however, this album takes a much more straight forward brutal approach. Unfortunately, sometimes in death metal this approach can often times make an album appear bland and forgettable. With less stand out riffing, sometimes death metal bands can find themselves blending into the carpet. I personally feel that Massacre have pulled this approach off with true musical precision. I would have to argue that "Back From Beyond" is definitely the band's heaviest album yet.

The 3rd and final reason why one may not like this album is simply because they don't like Massacre. For that reason as well as the other two I mentioned I recommend listening before you buy. Seriously, one can read all the reviews that the internet has to offer; however, at the end of the day nothing compares to hearing it for yourself.

Have A Nice Day
