This metal history lesson looks back 30 years to 1987, when a race for speed and heaviness reached a breaking point with key releases by Napalm Death, Carcass, Morbid Angel, Mayhem, Death, Terrorizer, Sarcofago, Extreme Noise Terror, and others. Witness the arrival of death metal, grindcore, and black metal, as vocals turn to growls, early blast beats surface, and the previous wave of thrash metal heathens is left in the dust. Exhume and consume 1987—and know your Roots!
