Massacre are a well-respected act in the death metal community. Beginning as a power/heavy metal band, a little after that Kam Lee and Allen West joined, effectively making it a death metal band. They recorded and released three demos independently before disbanding. However, after bands such as Napalm Death cited Massacre as an influence, this signified a great interest in the defunct act. This led to a reformation and recording of the 1991 album From Beyond.

Rating: 8 This is a classic. I'm not sure if I like The Second Coming or early demo/From Beyond sound of Massacre better, but this is great stuff.

Rating: 7 This is one of those "classics" that I think gets hyped up nowadays just because it's early-nineties death metal. It's a good album though, but not really special.

Just 18 soon ha ha ha. you were not even born then, so you missed the time when "From Beyond" was released. This was a bomb then and this is easily Top10 death metal album ever

  I wasn't born around this time, either (thank god), but I can still appreciate this as a bonafide death metal classic.

Because my age totally de-validates my opinion. I don't care how popular it was back in the day, I was saying that I think people today give it more credit than is warranted.

No, idea where the guy is from but to be honest this album wasn't popular back in the day. Most people even found it quite disappointing given its pedigree.

Nice to see I'm not crazy. I figured an album this standard could only garner so much critical acclaim.

I was just willing to say that it is not a very good idea to evaluate "critically" albums about the time you have nothing to do with. And I don t agree with Marcel. 24 years after I still think that "From Beyond" is one os the milestones of the beginning of nineties. And at least in former USSR back in the days it was not less popular than Death, Obituary and Carcass.

Actually man, if you listen to the music on it you can "critically" evaluate an album from any time. I always thought people who say "you had to be there" are kind of insecure about their own opinions and have nothing to back them up with, and therefore fall back on that as a crutch as some way to give themselves more credibility than others, when in reality it's just being a douchebag.

But you cannot evaluate the impact an album had at the time of its release when you weren't around at the time.

That's not something I consider a component of critical analysis. I was just trying to back up Alex because he listened to the album and didn't think it was the best thing ever, which is a perfectly fine opinion, and then some guy played the "you need to re-evaluate your opinion because you weren't alive when this album came out" card. Which is just another version of the ubiquitous "you need to re-evaluate your opinion because it's different than mine" card, which in itself is another strain of the metal person desperately wanting to think his tastes are better than the next guy mindset.

You aren't allowed to judge Mozart because you weren't even alive. That's what those kinds of people sound like to me. I think Marcel is right to a degree, but at the same time many modern music-scholars will judge the impact certain classical musicians had at the time. Anyways, back to the music: it's good but nothing special, and if I'm going to listen to 90s death metal it needs to do something beyond existing longer than other albums to grab my attention

you can judge anything you want since you are bearing a risk to look silly
