DEATHROW-raging steel LP (1987)
3.scattered by wind
5.the thing within
6.pledge to die
8.the undead cry
9.beyond the light
Vicious thrash metal that always reminded me a bit of the likes of Assassin or Dark Angel(with some Slayer thrown in ). This is the bands second release, and is a bit more technical than the previous.
There isn't really anything that makes this LP stick out any more than other great thrash that was coming out at the time, Its just another important LP to me because it brings back certain memories of a time and place I was at with certain people.
When I listen to this record it brings me back to my Livermore California days, driving around in my 1972 Gremlin, and having my long red haired sidekick Kenny trying to persistently put this tape in the tape deck.. with me yelling about being over metal and to throw some R.K.L. in instead. Kenny usually won.
