THE 1992 DEBUT OF PULVERISING DEATH METAL FROM BUFFALOs BAPHOMET PRESENTED ON VINYL
Baphomet was formed in Buffalo, New York in 1987, and belonged to the early prolific generation of US death metal, beginning with their Morbid Realities demo in 1989.
The Dead Shall Inherit was Baphomet's debut album, and was originally released by Peaceville imprint Deaf Records in 1992. This album is revered as a cult classic of pulverising heaviness, as Baphomet developed a strong profile alongside fellow New Yorkers Suffocation and Immolation for shaping the brutal end of the death metal spectrum in the early 1990's when the scene was truly flourishing.
Baphomet later became known as Banished, whilst keeping the same line-up, and received further success with the Deliver Me Unto Pain album which was released by Deaf/ Peaceville Records in 1994.
This vinyl edition of The Dead Shall Inherit is presented with its original sleeve artwork.
