Even before MASTER got signed to Nuclear Blast in 1989, the band's demo recordings already had a major impact on the worldwide underground Metal scene. MASTER were among the very first to take the blueprint of Metal to a more extreme sound and songwriting approach. Paul Speckmann and co. matured the Thrash Metal scene and gave birth to the Death Metal scene along with the likes of MANTAS / DEATH, REPULSION, SLAUGHTER, POSSESSED and CELTIC FROST. Things evolved even further, and members of late 1980s fresh Extreme Metal acts like NAPALM DEATH, BENEDICTION and TERRORIZER started pushing labels like Nuclear Blast to give the not-long-before reunited MASTER their change to finally do their full length debut. MASTER got indeed signed and proceeded to record their self titled debut at Morrisound Studios in 1990 with Scott Burns. While Paul Speckmann and Chris Mittleburn (guitars) mixed the recordings to their satisfaction, drummer Bill Schmidt and producer Scott Burns got together to master the recording. Without approval they triggered the drums which gave the recordings an unpleasant, machine-like artificial flavour. And then Scott forgot to include some solos while mastering. Nevertheless, the recordings got released and sold extremely well. Reviews were raving and it was not long before this debut became an instant classic! The band toured all around the world and got back in the studio to record their follow-up. The line-up was updated with ABOMINATION drummer Aaron Nickeas and DEATH & CYNIC guitarist Paul Masvidal. Speckmann and co. delivered killers follow-ups called "On the seventh day God created... Master" and "Collection of souls". Pushing that typical solid back-bone pounding MASTER style even further, these two full lengths featured all new hard-hitting tracks of utter Metal Brutality! Reviews were again very positive and further touring took place. Sixteen years and seven full length albums later MASTER is still going strong. With more and more young fans asking for the long out-of-print early albums Displeased Records decided to make the first 3 albums available again. These albums are essential for all fans new and old, and for all those who want to experience the True Originator of Extreme Metal! On your knees for the MASTER !!!
