GENRE: Thrash Metal
PRESSING INFO: No idea. There can't be that many of these out there.
Thrash metal has been a genre, for me at least, that has been hit or miss. I do enjoy thrash metal. Some of it. There is a lot of releases from the 1980's that are just awesome. The unfortunate part of that, is that most of those releases are next to impossible to find. And when found, will cost a small fortune. I have also had experience with some from the 1990's that are great. Although it seems that a lot that I come across isn't very thrashy. Maybe 1 or 2 songs have some fast parts, but usually its your typical crap hair metal.
This is different. I love this release. I picked it up at a Goodwill for 49 cents about 7 years ago. I was hoping for something fast, but was expecting something shitty. This however is not shitty. Oh no. Its technical, its got some great fast circle pit style parts, and it doesnt let up from track 1 until the end. And it fits nicely in my small collection of metal releases.
As far as information on this release? You got me. Mostly everything is a mystery to me. I do know however it is from Mclean Virginia and was released in 1990. I have only found 1 reference to this online and its basically everything I just told you. A total mystery release!
I recommend checking this out if your into fast music. Also any information on this release would be awesome.
SIDE NOTE!!! I KNOW TRACK 1 IS MESSED UP A LITTLE BIT. IT STARTS ABOUT 10 SECONDS TOO LATE, AND SKIPS ABOUT 2 SECONDS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SONG. IT IS MY CASSETTE PLAYER. THE REST OF THE RELEASE PLAYS PERFECT, SORRY!!!
