Like most obscure metal bands of the ‘80s and early ‘90s, Fatal had a very short lived career, which is a shame because they obviously had a huge amount of potential. Their 7" EP and the few demos they had were great, but if they were around long enough to really perfect what they were doing, there is no doubt that they would be much more well known. But like Necrovore, Crematory (SE) and other short lived bands, they stayed relatively obscure outside of the tape trading circles and zines.
This scorching analog mastery of death metal wizardry comes at you unearthed from the old graves of the year 1988-1990. Not many bands in the world were playing this style of death metal at that time. Outside of Morbid Angel, Death, Sadus' and Pestilence and all these bands could be considered contemporaries and friends of Fatal. One thing that will pop out at you with the first listen is the amazing remixing and remastering they did with all the tracks. Especially for mud drenched recordings such as the Guts For Dinner demo. The whole compilation has a consistently clear sound.
