Nineteen eighty-six should have been the year that death metal broke wide open, but a storm of oversights, mishaps, and bad luck delayed the U.S. releases, sometimes by years, of finished debut LPs by Repulsion, Necrophagia, Death, Master, Sepultura, Morbid Angel, Slaughter (Canada), and others. Join us as we crawl into the grave and investigate the raw, deathly wreckage of 1986…know your Roots!
