13.victims of the holocaust
These speedcore ragers were from mid Western Wisconsin, and formed in around 1984, with Members on this album being no more than 17 years old. Young ins Making great underground music.
This album is almost perfect in my opinion. The production is totally metal, while the songs and vox have a great crossover feel to them. The vocals are shouted or hollered in a hardcore sort of way, but they don't loose the metal vibe. I can't gush over this record enough, its just great. It has elements of the 1st Megadeth LP meets Cryptic Slaughter or something. How can you go wrong with members sporting t shirts from both Minor Threat, and the Grateful Dead on the back cover photo? Ridiculous, right? This is fast, tight, and very memorable.
The artwork to this record is horrifically bad, making it totally great if you get my drift.
Another Erl records score, from when I moved back to Albany in the late 80's. Enjoy, and comment if you download.
