Aborted - Global Flatline.jpg
4. Aborted Global Flatline (2012) Here, a worldwide zombie outbreak is imagined by this Belgian death metal crew. Rick from The Walking Dead can lead the charge in America all he wants, but the world is fucked if he doesn't think globally.

3. Death Breath Let It Stink (2007) The cover of The Beatles' classic swan song Let It Be is re-imagined here. This Swedish death-metal quartet wallows in the filth on tracks like "Giving Head To The Dead" and "Walking But Dead." If the zombie apocalypse occurred in 1970, Apple Records still would have had a hit on their hands.

Tankard - Zombie Attack.jpg
2. Tankard Zombie Attack (1986) The debut album by these German thrashers presents a United Nations of ghastly horrors. Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, a skeleton, and an axe-wielding hillbilly have united a shitty horror movie on television. If you walk into this room, turn back while they are distracted.

1. Municipal Waste The Fatal Feast (2012) So, you made it out of the haunted house, and went to the one place you thought would be It turns out you are still not safe, as this concept album from the Virginia skate-thrashers envisions the great beyond as yet-another place where no one is safe from ghastly horror.
