Massacre posterLegendary Florida death metal pioneers have returned with their first studio album effort in almost 20 years! Programmatically entitled Back From Beyond, the album will be released on March 24th in Europe and on April 1st in North America via Century Media Records. For a preview of Back From Beyond, the merciless song “As We Wait To Die” is now streaming via Decibel Magazine.com:

’s bassist Terry Butler comments: “We believe ‘As We Wait To Die’ is the perfect song for our fans to hear first and it’s the opening track off ‘Back From Beyond’ as well. It gives them a taste of the brutality that awaits!!!”

Returning to the roots of ’s early 90’s trademark sound, Back From Beyond was recorded and mixed by Tim Vazquez of CGM Studios, Florida, and features original MASSACRE members Rick Rozz (Guitars; ex-MANTAS/DEATH) and Terry Butler (Bass; OBITUARY, ex-DEATH/SIX FEET UNDER), as well as Ed Webb (Vocals; ex-DIABOLIC/EULOGY) and Mike Mazzonetto (Drums; ex-PAIN PRINCIPLE). Back From Beyond features cover artwork by Toshihiro Egawa (CRYPTOPSY, KRISIUN, DEVOURMENT, etc.) and will contain the following track-listing in its standard USA CD edition:
