These Metal heads were from another planet, Staten Island NY. Pretty obscure speed metal played by this trio here. The only other guy I know who might recall these guys is my pal Ron Grimaldi who I bet even saw these guys. The LP came out on Mercenary records, and features some pretty horrible artwork. These guys I'm sure had a $15 light show that traveled with them when they played Brooklyn. I'm not sure why I initially bought this record, maybe it was the bass players trench coat. A great crossover of speed metal with a hardcore influence thrown in for sure. If you like bands like Leeway, you'll prolly dig this one. enjoy.

  4. I remember this one!! never understood how these guys got overlooked by so many folks who were into the other NY hardcore-metal of the time (ie Cro Mags, Agnostic Front, Crumbsuckers, Leeway, etc). A classic indeed. horrible artwork and all..

  5. Hey thanks for buying this album. My name is Rob Graham, I am the bass player in the trench coat. Keith and I started this band when I had just graduated from high school. The art work represents man evolveing into ape, so I'll stand by it. Rick Berger also took the back cover photo.
    I would like to do a reunion with this band but Keith died in a bike accident. If anyone wants to contact me write to

  6. Digging deep here, because I just got turned onto the blog. Scored a sealed copy of this recently. Stoked.

    Would be interesting to hear it.
