ALBUM REVIEW: COME BACK FROM THE DEAD – CARO DATA VERMIBUS

Ye Olde Skool Death Metal, How hast thou been missed, yes and it’s Old Skool not Old School because that’s where you went to get a boring education, not an education in the art of Metal! Before us we have Spain’s very own Come Back From The Dead.

Never fear Old Skool fans as...
