Messiah - Hymn to Abramelin (CD)
Killer raw assault of early Swiss death / thrash. Total 80's metal attack, with direct comparisons to Sodom, Venom, Destruction, Hellhammer! Recorded and mixed entirely by the band in a small 8 track studio in Baar.
A barbaric idea where no-one can understand me.

MESSIAH's debut album "Hymn To Abramelin" had been released firstly in 1986 on the small label Chainsaw Murder Records and it had been one of the most violent records ever. Too violent for the magazines, so the bad reviews hadn't long to wait. The songs are still doubtless great. Simple but not unimaginative, brutal Death Metal killers with absolute hymn characteristics. - Metal Observer 5/5
