Nice list.

There was also Negro Terror from Memphis, TN. Unfortunately, their singer, Omar, died earlier this year.

These are great. My husband won't let me play them all because he's digging deep into the first few I played!

I'm so glad for this list. Thanks, eotvos!

Another classic is Death, and I also really enjoyed Great Wight.

Negro Terror, Death, Great Wite, and Pure Hell are on my albums to look for list. Thanks!

(Though Great Wite seems to be entirely unsearchable, no matter what type and number of quotes I add. Fuck search engines.)
