High Roller Records proudly presents the early demo material of ASSASSIN!
Hardcore thrashers insisting that ASSASSIN´s two early demos were superior to the rerecordings of the very same songs that ended up on the band´s debut album “The Upcoming Terror” might have a point. When the first tape “Holy Terror” started to circulate at the beginning of 1986, it not only put Düsseldorf on the map of German extreme metal but was also an instant classic of Teutonic steel because the quintet married instinctive ferocity with an already impressive degree of musicality.
Both demos were carefully restored and remastered by Patrick W. Engel at Temple of Disharmony Studio in August 2020 from the
original tape source.
CD – “Holy Terror / The Saga of Nemesis” : HRR 783CD, slipcase, both demos compiled on 1 disc.
