WORD CUP 2016
By popular demand (of a few dedicated misanthropes), here's a follow-up to the Samhain [Denmark] demo posting of a couple years ago.

Demented zookeepers include Exodus, Wehrmacht, Rainbow, Caninus, Hatebeak, Satyricon, Morbid Angel, Eagle Claw, Nunslaughter, Saint Vitus, and many many more.
Roots revisits the savage leading edge of progress by post-nuclear pilgrims including Power Trip, Havok, Dust Bolt, Lost Society, Hellbringer, and Vektor.
