Living Death (Ger) - Vengeance Of Hell (1984)

Living Death (Ger) - Vengeance Of Hell (1984)

From what I understand, there are two versions of this.  The first version (this one I have here) is the first mix that got a release on Mausoleum Records in 1984.  In 1985 it was released by Earthshaker Records and I guess something wasn't right with it, either pressing problems, the band, label or someone didn't like it or it was the wrong mix that got sent out, whatever it was, it got remixed and released later on with a big note on the cover stating "NEW REMIX".  I can't tell you what that second version sounds like as I have never heard it, and I also don't know what version was used on CD releases either.  I have no idea which is the more common version, but here is the first one on Mausoleum anyway.  Proper German Speed Metal with the "love them or hate them" vocals of Thorsten Bergmann.

  1. I think actually the Earthshaker new recording was because they simply thought the original version could be improved, so they did it.
    This version you have is the most common, and was the one that got released on CD.
    I have the new "remixed" version, I can provide links if you are interested.
