Maybe the prices will go down or newer arrivals will not be as expensive...one of the great things is actually having that vinyl!

Anyways, this is taking me back to a very brief period in my time hearing some of this music thanks to a friend who knew that someday that Metal and Punk would mix very well - at their best, both have that attitude that seriously wins me over. I was very open minded (maybe still!) and wanted to hear what was going on through my late Teen Years so that I can take me experience with me in my memories forever. Sadly, there were not many where I lived that got into the Metal underground so that left me in the cold with a couple of copies of Sounds (THE best of the weeklies, end comparison!) and without people to crank up the stereo with as there was still that divide.

Raw, maniac music!

I'm honored that you even read my thread as I'd figured you for someone with far too much taste to like this crap. I guess badass is universal.

I figured they pronounced it wrong. And I'm not surprised that that guy was a bum. Whether it's just the type of person who gets into that line of "work" or it's just what happens when you spend your twenties not gaining any kind of useful job skills or a real employment record it seems like a sort of dirty secret that people in "underground" music don't really end well after they get out of the biz. I get the feeling that Exodus reformed just because Gary Holt needed to do something to get himself off of meth.

Metallica: No Life 'Till Leather demo - 1982




Everyone on this site has heard Kill 'Em All about a million times so there's no point in mentioning it, though as far as I'm concerned it's certainly appropriate. But demos, even ones from such a band as Metallica, generally go unnoticed enough that I can slip one in. And especially this one. Obviously since I wasn't there I can't really know, but according to my research (Magic School Bus reference FTW!) this demo seems to have had almost as big an influence on the burgeoning thrash metal movement as their actual debut due to the tape trading underground. So, demo or not, this is a milestone.

This has pretty much most of the songs from the debut, so it's not like it's necessarily required listening for anyone who isn't a Metallica completionist, but it's got a couple differences that bear mentioning. First of all, on Kill 'Em All James Hetfield's voice is a feral bark, but on this he'd apparently not settled on that style yet. In fact at times it almost sounds like he's auditioning to be in Cheap Trick. Not necessarily a good thing, but it adds a certain charm, and the music is as it should be so it's a minor complaint.

And secondly, this is the only Metallica recording (checks the Metal Archives to be sure), yes, the only one to feature Dave Mustaine, and as such they hadn't yet had to rewrite "The Mechanix" into "Four Horsemen". As far as I'm concerned getting to hear Metallica play the original is worth listening to this all by itself...even if James sounds like Robin Zander. Although a hilarious thought occurred to me just now. Motley Crue had a heavy Cheap Trick influence, and Vince Neil (who started out in a Cheap Trick cover band) was definitely himself channeling Robin Zander on their first album, and supposedly James was a big Motley fan back when they'd just started out playing the Sunset Strip...so...I think Metallica's vocals may have been based on Vince Neil back in the early days. Oh god I want to meet James Hetfield and ask him about that just to be a dick.

Sarcófago: I.N.R.I. - 1987



(First of all, it was almost impossible to find a 300x300 version of the original orange artwork that doesn't look like ass, and secondly, since Sarcofago has "fag" in the middle, which is normally censored on this site, most links to a pic from them are unusable. So, **** all of that ****.)


I've only recently become familiar with Sarcofago but this album has already become one of my new favorite metal albums. If you've ever heard De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas then you have a good idea of what this sounds like, cause Euronymous was obviously wearing his copy out when he wrote that album. This album is composed of only the filthiest and most simplistic of thrash, early black and death metal, and hardcore. It's sloppy and unnuanced and ****ty sounding and is probably one of the most intense albums of the eighties. Seriously, until De Mysteriis I don't know if there was a band that used and abused the blast beat quite so flagrantly as Sarcofago. From the retched vocals to the abysmal production to the awful musicianship to the aforementioned drumming this is an ugly, ugly thing with no redeeming value for Trollheart. Even the lyrics are notably amateurish since the band are from Brazil and obviously don't really speak English...


Quote:
On fire of darkness
Rise a scream of hate
Satanas want vomit
On Jesus Christ's face

Pure poetry. I know Sepultura is the Brazilian band that gets all the love, but this album shits on anything they've ever done. It just takes a hot, steaming dump all over Beneath the Remains and Chaos A.D. I mean they end the album with carnival music followed by the sound of some guy taking a nasty crap and then flushing the toilet. I think that says it all right there.

Edit: And how could I leave this without mentioning "Deathrash". No song could better illustrate just how much these guys do not get English. Any native speaker would never use this song title, because while the band obviously meant it to sound like "Death Thrash" we all hear "Death Rash". And that's pretty fantastic.

Good call on Sarcófago: I'm a big fan of Rotting, but those clips make me want their earlier stuff now too. Keep the scuzz comin' cuzz!

Thanks! Sometimes I have to get into this music - it keeps a serious balance in my music listening. Badass is universal, and the best of this music sometimes gives the listener a little extra attitude that can be a positive thing.


Plus, it goes well with my interest in Horror Films.

I try to keep an open ear.
