    Back from Beyond is decent, some good songs, others..not so good. It sounds a lot like Grave's recent material. From Beyond will always be their best but it's good to see these guys active and back making music.

    Gotta agree with Thorgrimm6... I'll get BFB only to complete my collection. For me there is no Massacre without Kam.

    Also, it's good to finally have insight to that Massacre vs Kam Lee situation... Kam Lee still has the better vocals, but it's just too bad that his egotistical persona just doesn't allow for a future cooperation between him and the Massacre guys... I still hoped the interview would mention stuff about that issue between Chris Barnes and Terry Butler... Now we're still left in the dark about that...

    "Ascension of the Deceased" is the best track, for sure. It's fast and it brings the "From Beyond" spirit back (at least for a while). No, I didn't want a "From Beyond" clone, but I wish the album were fast and raging, like every death metal album should be.

    Thanks for that Johan....yeah the new album is a let down, seems like they just kinda phoned it in. And no way in hell is Webb a better vocalist than Kam, not for Massacre anyway.

    I was hoping that the new album could be great, but, I'm dissapointed, it's kinda weak.

    Edwin Webb is better.

    Yeah, not really Massacre without Kam Lee...

    the new album is decent, but I'm not sure if the vocalist actually is that fitting for Massacre, vocals remind me a bit of the Jungle Rot frontman
