5.0 classicBRAman22 | September 24th 14

Seven Churches is an amazing, thrashy old school death metal album.

Bump

4.5 superbTotengott | May 28th 14

Essential album for both Death and Black metal.rAlso the first Death metal album.

4.0 excellentbranflakes911 | November 30th 13

Though it never quite moves beyond its thrash roots, Seven Churches is undeniably death metal at a time when there was no such thing. For its time and its forward-thinking its unparalleled, but it does lack in certain areas. When it gets rolling, as on "The Exorcist" or "Holy Hell", its a vicious bulldozer, but at times in between its somewhat standard bay area thrash. A must have, but not perfect.

3.0 goodMicah-Nahum Ferguson is reading again. | August 9th 13

A decent thrash album that morphs into a good early death metal episode in its latter half.

Bump

4.5 superbThrashK | June 23rd 13

Still not 4.2? This soundoff is too short, fuck you

Bump

4.5 superbZedo Kei | June 7th 12

Possessed's "Seven Churches" is truly classic death metal stuff......

Bump

3.5 greatTheNotrap | June 18th 11

Seven Churches was the first death metal album ever recorded. The missing link between Thrash and Death Metal. Classic underground stuff

Bump

3.5 greatjk2two | October 2nd 10

In terms of historical significance - the first real death growl, the genre naming closing track, etc. - this is probably worth a 5.0 but in the context of thrash in 1985, there were certainly better albums out there. So it's hard to rate this any higher than a 3.5, but that being said - it is still essential for any fan of old school death metal. Favorite tracks: Pentagram, Evil Warriors, and (of course) Death Metal.

Bump

5.0 classicIndustryFails | March 17th 10

Fucking awesome, the introduction to death metal, the most evil thrash metal. The best death/thrash album to date, always will be. Every song is a masterpiece, but Pentagram and The Exorcist will always be the greatest out of all of them.
