Massacra: "Day Of The Massacra" demo compilation available NOW! First three albums coming in early 2014!
"Day Of The Massacra", the first-ever compilation of French death/thrash warriors MASSACRA's 80's demos is out now in Europe!
Guitarist Jean-Marc Tristani comments:
"MASSACRA will never reunite but we are all proud in the band to come back with "Day Of The Massacra". Brutal 90's death metal will never die!"
"Day Of The Massacra" contains the demos "Legion Of Torture" (1987), "Final Holocaust" (1988) and "Nearer From Death" (1989) remastered at DMS by Ulf Horbelt (Morbid, Asphyx, Grave, Necropsy) while retaining the original raw charm. Nathaniel Colas did a great in-depth interview with original guitarist Jean-Marc Tristani who also provided many rare photos and Thomas Westphal of the infamous Necromaniac Zine (Germany) did the cover.
"Day Of The Massacra" is available as standard CD jewelcase (on midprice!) with an extensive 24 pages booklet, digital download and LP on 180g vinyl with a LP booklet plus a MASSACRA logo patch!
Buy the black LP+patch, strictly limited transparent red LP+patch (only 100 copies!) or CD here:

"MASSACRA is the perfect example of the breaking point between thrash and death metal: hysterical aggression accompanied by mad vocals, delivered without any fancy bullshit!"
Daniel Ekeroth, author of Swedish Death Metal book / writer for SWEDEN ROCK
""Day Of The Massacra" is a must-have release, a gift full of bonuses and rare collector's material."
"Having these formative demos on CD or LP will be a delight for any metalhead..."
The next round in Century Media's series of MASSACRA-reissues will be the first three albums "Final Holocaust" (1990), "Enjoy The Violence" (1991) and "Signs Of The Decline" (1992) coming out in early 2014. All three albums have been carefully remastered for CD and vinyl by Patrick W. Engel at Temple Of Disharmony (www.templeofdisharmony.com) and also offer bonus material, liner notes, reworked layouts, high quality cover artworks (no cheap and blurry scans), rare photos and whatever else there is a fan of real death metal could ask for.
These reissues are the only versions done with full support of the band, correct several flaws of previous re-releases and will be the definite editions of such death metal classics, so don't spend a buck on bootlegs that suck!
