Living Death punched their way into a record deal with the release of their 3 song demo: "Living Death", "Nightlight", and "My Victim".
When Vengeance of Hell was released it did quite well despite its poor production, most notibly the terribly produced drum sound. It was later remixed with drummer Andreas Oberhoff; I'm not sure if this happened in the same year or the next. This album, with its moody atmosphere, rolls along at a moderate to fast speed with thick -sounding guitar work and classic LD lead. The song styles vary, unlike later Living Death albums such as Metal Revolution, Back to the Weapons and Protected From Reality, all which have a "tighter" style. Thorsten's vocals have yet to develop to their classic style, on this album sounding fairly clear and somewhat monotonous. The track "Hellpike" with remastered drums appears on the 1985 Speed Kills II compliation.

Back CD Cover Front CD Cover *This album was reissued by the Mausolum label in 1995 as a "reissue classic" on CD. I believe it is now (again) out of print. Though it was reissured the drums were not remixed and therefore the CD still possesses the weak sounding drums. Here are the scans from the remastered CD:



Outstanding tracks: Hellpike, Heavy Metal Hurricane, My Victim, Vengeance of Hell

YOU AND ME

My heart is burning hot, but you don't love me
I want to try up, but you made me stop
I read in every letter that you were a slattern
And I'm not slight, I hold, hold you tight

When you're skulking, you planned a bad thing
And in you eyes I see the lies
Take some advice before you pay the price
And your desperation, for me a sensation

You And Me, the Devil see
You And Me, I wanna be free
You And Me, the Devil see
Me And You

My heart is burning hot, but you don't love me
I want to try up, but you made me stop
I read in every letter that you were a slattern
And I'm not slight, I hold, hold you tight

You And Me, the Devil see
You And Me, I wanna be free
You And Me, the Devil see
Me And You

When you're skulking, you planned a bad thing
And in you eyes I see the lies
Take some advice before you pay the price
And your desperation, for me a sensation

My heart is burning hot, but you don't love me
I want to try up, but you made me stop
I read in every letter that you were a slattern
And I'm not slight, I hold, hold you tight

You And Me, the Devil see
You And Me, I wanna be free
You And Me, the Devil see
Me And You

When you're skulking, you planned a bad thing
And in you eyes I see the lies
Take some advice before you pay the price
And your desperation, for me a sensation

You And Me
You And Me
You And Me
You And Me
You And Me
You And Me
You And Me
You And Me....


LIVING DEATH

Three years ago
She did it for show
It didn't take along way
Till she made it every day

Three years ago
She'd raving madness
It was her death blow
She's a Living Death

The drugs you see, her deadly enemy
Her will to live was less, you know she is Living Death
I saw her danger stuff, it was for her too much
Then she lost her soul, Devil has his crown, his crown, his crown, his crown

One day ago, she looked so low
I think I'm crazy when I see her again
I run after her, through the dark lanes
Then I looked at her, she is Living Death, so Death, so Death, so Death

The drugs you see, her deadly enemy
Her will to live was less, you know she is Living Death
I saw her danger stuff, it was for her too much
Then she lost her soul, Devil has his crown, his crown, his crown, his crown

One day ago, she looked so low
I think I'm crazy when I see her again
I run after her, through the dark lanes
Then I looked at her, she is Living Death, so Death, so Death you know, so Death

The drugs you see, her deadly enemy
Her will to live was less, you know she is Living Death
I saw her danger stuff, it was for her too much
Then she lost her soul, Devil has his crown, his crown, his crown, his crown

Try to help her fast when I saw her last
Kill her poisoned soul, Devil must now fall
I loved her so, she's forever gone
She was all for me, now she's final free, so free , so free, so free

Free


NIGHT LIGHT

She said to me if I couldn't see
And deep in the night when I turned out the light
She came near and nearer, and in my dreams I see her
But she didn't know, she thinks it was my show...
My show, and she thinks it was my show

I whispered in her ear that she don't have to fear
I try hard to tell her that I won't go leave her
She came near and near a-ha-ha-ha, and in my dreams I see her
But she didn't know, she thinks it was my show...

Night Light
Night Light
Night Light
Night Light
Night Light
Night Light
Night Light
Night Light

She said to me if I couldn't see
And deep in the night when I turned out the light
She came near and nearer, and in my dreams I see her
But she didn't know, she thinks it was my show...

Night Light
Night Light
Night Light
Night Light
Night Light
Night Light
Night Light
Night Light
(and again many more times!)


MY VICTIM

He runs, she runs, all the other people run
And you hear with your ear, that they all must have fear
You couldn't tell when I spell all the victims in the hell

My victim, my victim, you are living without a chance
My victim, my victim, you will die at you helldance

On the world I'm the earl when it comes to killing girls
When they lie, I must try, that they have all to die
When I came on my flame and they were never seen again

You cry, short before you die

Run from me when you see that you'll be my enemy
It is real when you feel that I will your life steal
And you hope since my show that I love you no, no, no
Then I say in this way that I'll kill you here today

You cry, short before you die

Come over you
Come over you
Come over you
Come over you

My victim, my victim, you are living without a chance
My victim, my victim, you will die at you helldance
My victim, my victim, you are living without a chance
My victim, my victim, you will die at you helldance

You cry, short before you die

My victim, my victim, you are living without a chance
My victim, my victim, you will die at you helldance
My victim, my victim, you are living without a chance
My victim, my victim, you will die at you helldance

You cry, short before you die

Come over you
Come over you
Come over you
Come over you
Come over you
Come over you
Come over you
Come over you

You cry, short before you die

My victim, my victim, you are living without a chance
My victim, my victim, you will die at you helldance
My victim, my victim, you are living without a chance
My victim, my victim, you will die at you helldance

You cry, short before you die

Come over you
Come over you
Come over you
Come over you
Come over you
Come over you
Come over you
Come over you....


LABYRINTH

HEAVY METAL HURRICANE

I see it in the night
When all wars end the fight
You see it too

The moon stood high, it was no lie
When I tell it's so shy
I'm warning you

They came so quick, like a trick
The people run before they die
I hear you cry

It was a slough, I'd never thought
The people bleed in the wet
I could not act

It was a battle like heavy metal
All the freaks banged their heads
So I want to see
Heavy Metal Hurricane
In the hell and back again
Heavy Metal Hurricane
Bloody action see again

I see it in the night
When all wars end the fight
You see it too

The moon stood high, it was no lie
When I tell it's so shy
I'm warning you

It was a battle like heavy metal
All the freaks banged their heads
So I want to see
Heavy Metal Hurricane
In the hell and back again
Heavy Metal Hurricane
Bloody action see again

I see it in the night
When all wars end the fight
You see it too

The moon stood high, it was no lie
When I tell it's so shy
I'm warning you

They came so quick, like a trick
The people run before they die
I hear you cry

It was a slough, I'd never thought
The people bleed in the wet
I could not act

It was a battle like heavy metal
All the freaks banged their heads
So I want to see
Heavy Metal Hurricane
In the hell and back again
Heavy Metal Hurricane
Bloody action see again

It was a battle like heavy metal
All the freaks banged their heads
So I want to see
Heavy Metal Hurricane
In the hell and back again
Heavy Metal Hurricane
Bloody action see again


HELLPIKE

He runs through the dark lanes
Kills the people without a chance
Then you have nothing to win
When he comes to begin

Hellpike, Hellpike
Hellpike, Hellpike
Hellpike, Hellpike

He comes deep, deep from hell
When you're there you're nothing to tell
He takes your blood not too small
Paints with it all the walls

Hellpike, Hellpike
Hellpike, Hellpike
Hellpike, Hellpike
Hellpike, Hellpike

He rules your way since these days
From the sky deep in his realm
He grabbed the bowels out of you
You're screaming like your funeral song

Hellpike, Hellpike
Hellpike, Hellpike
Hellpike, Hellpike
Hellpike, Hellpike

He takes your blood not too small
Paints with it all the walls
He grabbed the bowels out of you
You're screaming like your funeral song

He comes deep, deep from hell
When you're there you're nothing to tell
He takes your blood not too small
Paints with it all the walls

Hellpike, Hellpike

RIDING A VIRGIN

Come and hear the story about a girl
Which found her first love in me...

Saw her on the street, she was what I need
She looked so fine, she must me mine

Six pm she hears me say that I will love her everyday
She was the best, what I've seen
In my dreams she was the Queen

Some good time ago, you all, all don't know
In my bed it was so red...

Riding a virgin it was too late
Riding a virgin she lost it in my bed

She was only fifteen when I killed her screen
But it wasn't bad because she drove me mad

Since these days we go the way
Our whole life long, we'll love us so strong


VENGEANCE OF HELL

He comes up
Out of Hell
Hold it for
Hold it for spell

Centuries ago
A holy man
Had a big fight
With his ancestor

Vengeance of Hell, Vengeance of Hell, you all
Vengeance of Hell, Vengeance of Hell, must die

He comes up
Out of Hell
All men who saw
Hold it for spell

Centuries ago
A holy man
Had a big fight
With his ancestor

Vengeance of Hell, Vengeance of Hell, you all
Vengeance of Hell, Vengeance of Hell, must die
Vengeance of Hell, Vengeance of Hell, you all
Vengeance of Hell, Vengeance of Hell, must die

I wanna tell you about a man who's ancestor
Had a big fight with a holy man centuries ago
Now he comes from deep up out of his dark realm
And on the whole world the holy men start to run
When they saw the vengeance in his eyes

Run, run, run, run, run, run...
