Borders also appears on the compilation Tyrants of Death consisting of the bands classic demos and live recordings from the years 1985 to 1987. He was later replaced by Terry Butler.
They disbanded and re-united again several times.

In 1987, Rozz, Andrews and Butler joined Death, but in 1991 they rejoined with Rick Rozz and Massacre released their debut album From Beyond, followed by an EP a year later. After the release of the EP the band split up again.

Rozz reformed the band in 1993 and released a new album Promise in 1996. That same year, Kam Lee left the band.

Kam Lee, Terry Butler and Steve Swanson along with Sam Williams III and Curtis Beeson temporarily reunited as Massacre in 2006.
