Juggernaut-baptism under fire LP (1986)
3.Cast the First Stone
4.Rains of Death
6.All Hallow's Eve
11.Hang 'em High
I love this record because It reminds me of a Megadeth LP that should have been made sometime after killing is my business.
Juggernaut were from Austin Texas, and formed in around 1984 (putting out three demos before this the bands first release). These guys have always been labeled a speed metal or thrash metal band, though they really only ever break mid paced speed a few times on this LP. That doesn't stop this stuff from punishing. Totally catchy Metal with ridiculous lyrics.
I was turned onto this record by my high school friend Dave Stevenson. I had played in a band with him, and ended up buying some of his record collection. This LP was among a bunch of punk and hardcore records.
