    On the CD The Crusher they have that "bonus track" Eyes of Horror. Is that an original or a cover?? I cant help think it's a cover of an old Possessed song just in the way it sounds.

    I'm about 90% certain it's a Possessed cover.

    I think this is Celtic Frost. Saying the truth, I never listened to them, but almost every second band makes at least one Celtic's cover song... So I guess this must be Celtic Frost's song.

    Possessed, Possessed. I've just found lyrics....
    But why there isn't written in a booklet whose song it is?

    Thanks all, I had this gnawing feeling the first time I heard it. I used to love Possessed...damm I can remember when they came out, lol...but your right Amonn, they did an awesome job covering it.

    It's Possessed, and if you don't already have Possessed's Seven Churches, then you need to buy it because that is where death metal began.

    they were by definition a thrash band, but they are credited also as the first "death metal" band

    Bridged the gap. Death metal evolved out of thrash...it was part of the "extremization" process, from NWOBHM-->speed-->thrash-->death-->grindcore-->total fucking noise like Cock & Ball Torture.
