Decibel demon before "Incubus" before "Opprobrium" with Brian Jeffrey as lead singer.
Originally from the thrash heaven of Brazil, the original Decibel Demon were one of the first bands to succesfuly mix Speed Metal and Thrash Metal. It was clear that these Guys were one of the most savage bands in the entire 80's scene.
Sadly, the band eventually change style and replace singer 'Brian Jeffrey' with 'Scott Latour' making them to change their name to Incubus in 1988 during the peak of the Thrash Metal genre.
They released an album 'Declassified' that could be the most brutal of it's entire genre and still sounds relevant to this day, featuring furious tempos and aggression which very few bands even now dare touch. Doublebass kicks made of Heavy and Thrash, fat grooves that fill the whole Metalcore community with envyness and aggressive screams as well as modern melodies and clear vocals are what this album is made of.
What we Have here is a record full of awesome songs, memorable riffs, all with sharp execution to make a convincing attack. Sounds good doesn't it?

Serpent Temptation, the 1988 debut by New Orleans death/thrash pioneers OPPROBRIUM (formerly known as Incubus) reissue for the first time in nearly thirty years!
Released at the height of extreme metal's reign, Serpent Temptation has since been rightfully hailed as an underground classic for its innovation and ferocity.
Undoubtedly one of the heaviest records of the 1980s.
"Louisiana's first-ever death metal band."
Back in mid-1982, Moyses M. Howard (drums) and Francis M. Howard (guitar, vocals) moved from their native Rio de Janeiro, Brazil with their parents and settled down in New Orleans, USA.
The band took interest in the newer underground metal and hardcore bands in the mid-80's, released a number of highly-regarded albums, and is still active today.
