Two demos...or most of the demos...of F-A-S-T vintage ('86) speed-thrash that fluctuates between Repulsion's clean style of blastbeats and rhythm-heavy riffing, to Slaughter's overall speed on the "Strappado" LP. The occasional SCREAMING solos are masterfully rendered...as they would be. This is yet another Paul Speckmann side band, so the musicianship is nothing short of professional (and incredibly well recorded...for being "demos" they still sound close to album quality). I think what surprises me the most about this band is the SPEED. Speckmann's usual Master riffs (there's an ultra-blast version of "The Truth" on this) translate VERY well over a speedier beat...which basically gives you Terrorizer. I think Oscar Garcia would even admit to that (these two demos were VERY popular with all the early Earache godheads, and I do mean ALL). In Speckmann's world though, the band was just playing crossover/hardcore. It's all a bit mindblowing really. The transfer is exceptional, and the choice of tracks well suits a 7"s inherent length. Speckmann oversaw the project apparently, and provided liner notes...but I'm still wondering why the demos were released in such a truncated form. The third demo is missing completely. This won't detract from YOUR enjoyment of this particular click, but from a wizarding standpoint it's just god-awful :p
