Black Death Drummer Dead

Phil Bullard, drummer for the metal band Black Death, died on February 6 from colon cancer. Many sites are crediting Black Death (formed in 1977) with being the first all-black metal group. We confess to not having ever heard them and thus felt compelled (shamed?) to search out some sample tunes. Here is the best page for a free, non-illegal MP3; scroll about three-quarters down. [Update 2022: we’ve removed the slow-loading link and replaced it with the full album available as a YouTube vid embedded below. Thanks, Google Overlords!] And if that’s the sort of tune that gets your sticks all hard, you’ll be raging to know that Auburn Records is releasing a deluxe version of Black Death’s eponymous 1984 album.
