Ironchrist-getting the most out of your extinction (1989)
1. Getting The Most Out Of Your Extinction
3. World War Three (Crack Party Weekend)
4. Mechanized Emotions
8. White Plague
Ironchrist played a very strange style of thrash, that was far from generic. The vox are totally hardcore/punk influenced and sort of remind me of Cryptic Slaughter or DRI. The music is more technically advanced thrash that I can't even imagine trying to play. There are elements of all types in the music, though things rarely curve to far from the double bass, and mega fast guitar riffing. I discovered this a bit later in the early 90's when I was reaching out and searching for metal that I had missed in the later 80's. Not everyone will get this record, but its a classic, and I think It to be very strong, and pretty ahead of its time (while still remaining sort of retro vocally). The band was from Maryland.
