Guitar World's 1992 Death Metal Roundtable

I still remember this article like it was yesterday. I must have read it 20 times- the guitarists for Death, Morbid Angel, Obituary, and Deicide all in one place, telling all their secrets!! It was like mana from heaven to me. Although even that at young age, I was smart enough to know something was up with bits like this:
But while Venom and Possessed utilized Satanic imagery as a gimmick, Brunelle, guitarist Trey Azagthoth and company are true believers. "We're all pretty much one when it comes to anything regarding the supernatural or the occult," says Brunelle. "I'm totally intrigued by it, and I read about it as much as possible. But you can only go so far: the next step would be walking through walls." (laughs)
I remember reading that part and thinking, "His band jams... but holy shit, what a giant faggot!"

In any case, read the article here for some vintage laughs from the days when Florida ruled the roost.

  1. I remember this too. My favorite part was Benton saying Diecide got their guitar sound from being mentally deranged.
