this vinyl news from

Mantas - Death By Metal LP  Due Out - 6/19/12

This is where it all began. For the first time ever Chuck Schuldiner’s pre-DEATH band MANTAS’s recordings have been officially collected into one fully authorized compilation. ‘Death By Metal’ is the brutally raw sound of an entire genre being born out of the basement of Chuck Schuldiner’s Florida home close to 3 decades ago.  This is the first time that these recordings have been legitimately available since their original release as the Death By Metal demo tape (1984).  This is the beginning of DEATH!Single LP
