Nasty Savage were from Brandon Florida, and were rumored to feature a pro wrestler as their front man...Nasty Ronnie Savage. The band had a devote following, and lots of interest from kids like me, a year before the LP even existed. This was due to Ronnie's use of underground rags, and hype he pretty much created himself way pre internet.
This LP is basically just some early stripped down speed metal, with awesome bass licks and riffage and then Ronnie's over the top screams added to liven things up a bit. This record is the first that I'm familiar with, that was recorded at the now infamous metal studio "Morris sound"(you know... Morbid Angel, Terrorizer, Assuck, Cannibal Corpse, etc).
Nasty Savage might have started or discovered something good in the waters of Florida.

  6. Nasty Ronnie Galletti actually ran an indy wrestling promotion out of Florida called Hot TV Wrestling. I think they still exist and here's a link to their site...

    I saw Nasty Savage play here in Ontario with Sacrifice, D.R.I. and Sick Of It All years ago. Ronnie was pissed because the promoter wouldn't provide a television set for him to smash and roll around in.

  8. Being a diehard fan of Florida's scene for more than a decade the only thing i have to say about Nasty Savage is that they influenced the whole scene really silently. Many bands used their techniques and this band hugely influenced the whole early thrash-death florida well known bands n style in general. Total respect !

  9. Those most have been fun shows having to deal with the front man taking someone and going all "Stone Cold Steve Austin" on them. The music is really good pretty fast just what I enjoy en the road.
