(I'm reviewing only Bestial Devastation here)

This 4 song EP has a lot in common with Morbid Visions (see my review of it), but this sounds more primitive, simple and straightforward. My favorite songs would have to be "Necromancer", a sludgy number in the Celtic Frost vein, and "Antichrist", a total thrasher that starts fast and goes into a midpaced annihilative thrash break. Later (sucky) Sepultura redid it and played on '94 with the name "Anticop". As expected, it sucked, surprise, surprise.

This EP was in a status of obscurity until Roadrunner decided to release it along with the Morbid Visions full lenght. Now, the latest remastered version of said reissue contains two extra tracks: the aforementioned "Anticop" (sucks) and a demo version of "Necromancer" from '85 or so that, if I'm not mistaken, is the first ever Sepultura recording, and sounds not too much apart from the final version, but is worth for historical importance, I guess.

A damn good EP, overall.
