TYRRANICIDE-hiding under white demo (1986)
1.hiding under white
2.summoned to die
In my opinion this demo blows away the bands LP. The demo is right on par with Sacrilege B.C.'s demo in rawness, and sheer brutality.
Amazing Bay Area thrash metal with catchy as fuck Mosh parts. Some of the riffs even have that Possessed seven churches feel to it. The ending of the title track is one of those songs. It mixes elements of Sacrilege, Possessed, and even some Exodus. This is a down right amazing demo tape. These dudes were from the same suburb as I was living in for a period of my life. They played lots of diy shows in places like my surrogate family's mechanical garage. Seriously an inspirational band for me then, as they were writing social/political songs, playing with punk bands, while still waving the flag of long hairism. Mike, the drummer was crippled, I still don't know how he did it. seriously, listen to this shit, then think about the fact that the drummer couldn't walk without crutches. mind blowing.
