Mantas, the band that shortly became Death one year after it formed.

Before there was Death, Chuck Schuldiner and his bandmates were in Mantas. Mantas released a handful of demos in 1984 before changing their name, and one of the tracks that was featured on a few of the demos was "Legion Of Doom." Now Death worship band Gruesome has updated the song to be a little more 2018, and their cover is damn good. The cover will be featured in Decibel's coming issue which you can grab right here.
