10.beneath the surface
Devastation were from Corpus Christi Texas, and put this their debut LP out in 1986. I think its safe to say that if I heard this today, I might not be all to impressed, due to to the production. Its also safe to say that these guys went on to influence the death metal scene with their thrashing bay area sound. I love the vocals, as they are totally hardcore punk influenced.
My long haired Livermore California friend Kenny Donovan turned me onto these dudes. His poor mom would drive us someplace, kenny would stick a thrash tape in the tape deck, and she'd be driving, screaming for him to turn that shit down! He'd just smile and mimic playing air drums. Good times..
