Metal Hammer (UK) - - Metallica -

Con­tem­po­raries of Me­tal­lica on the nascent 80s ex­treme me­tal un­der­ground, Mer­cy­ful Fate emerged from Copen­hagen, Den­mark with a de­vot­edly oc­cult but so­phis­ti­cated and pro­gres­sive brand of heavy me­tal, their first, brief phase of ac­tiv­ity brim­ming with some of the might­i­est me­tal tunes ever writ­ten. Me­tal­lica couldn’t choose just one or two to cover, so they went with five, care­fully ar­rang­ing seg­ments to­gether to cre­ate Garage Inc’s mag­nif­i­cent labour-oflove cen­tre­piece.
