Back in the day, I bought this album on cassette tape. It literally petrified me! The intensity of the thrashing music, the volatility of the vocals, and the crisp moodiness was too much for me to handle. The lyrics were Biblically right-on, being the only thing that helped elevate my ears from the torrential onslaught of music blaring from my stereo speakers. The songs “Haunts of Violence”, “Carry the Corpse”, “The Wicked will Rot”, and “Souls in Torment” blasted my soul! As it stands, this album is one of the keepsakes in my private metal collection. A classic for all time sake that evil can never outdo or overcome! I am thrilled that Retroactive Records has re-issued this masterpiece on vinyl! Hails to Jesus!

Originally released in 1992 on the legendary R.E.X. label it was being hyped as the heaviest disc they had ever released. And, while Death Metal was starting to dominate the scene, new vocalist Robert Wolfe showed he had the perfect voice for these thrash-titans - cool high pitched shrieky vocals that work so well with classic thrash. HAUNTS... is stinkin' heavy and at times reminiscent of Slayer and Death. Expect loads of gang vocals and some furious guitar playing. In the words of Metal Historian (and the voice of Christian thrashers, Ultimatum) Scott Waters, “This disc is EXCELLENT!” Kevin Ayers of Haven produced the disc. After the band broke up, bassist Eric Ney went onto play with Sardonyx for a short time. In 1999 he reappeared with Joey Daub (ex-Believer) in a new project called Fountain of Tears. In 2014 Retroactive reissued this mega-classic thrash album as a stunning full color 4-panel digipack, featuring a deluxe audio improvement when remastered by J Powell of Steinhaus.
