Master is a death metal band formed in Chicago, USA in 1983 as the band Warcry fell apart. Shortly after however, the band was put on hold due to internal problem. Paul Speckmann then formed the band Death Strike, which in 1985 he renamed to Master. Master is one of the earliest death metal bands [1][2]along with band like Possessed, Death and Morbid Angel, however, quite often overlooked.

In 1985 master obtained a record deal with Combat Records and recorded an album, which was never released, until it was finally released by Displeased Records in 2003 as Unreleased 1985 album. In 1990 the band got signed to the German label Nuclear Blast Records, who also had contracted Speckmann's other band Abomination.

The actual debut album of Master, titled simply Master was recorded twice. First with Jim Martinelli on Guitars and Aaron Nickeas on Drums. This recording was not accepted by the record company Nuclear Blast. Hence it was re-recorded with Schmidt (drums) and Mittelbrun (guitar), which was eventually released. The first recording was later released under the name Speckmann Project in 1992.

In 1991, the second album was released: On the Seventh Day God Created ... Master, featuring Paul Masvidal on lead guitar. Followed by the Collection of Souls in 1993 both on Nuclear Blast. Thereafter their record deal ended and Master went on hiatus to find a new record label. Five years layer, Faith Is in Season was released on Pavement Records. Speckmann then focussed on several other projects, including the resurrected Abomination and eventually joined the Czech band Krabathor, which meant Speckmann relocated to the Czech Republic. In 2002 the next album was released, titled Let's Start a War by System Shock, which also contracted Krabathor. In 2003 Spirit of the West followed, and Spirit of the West in 2004, on the same label. Master then switched labels again, to the German label Twilight Vertrieb and released Four More Years of Terror in 2005. The new album Slaves to Society is expected to be out in May 2007. The band will embark on a European tour in May and June. The band will embark on yet another tour with Chicago legend Lividity beginning on September 8th 2007 until the 30th. Old Metal heads never die.
