Review

Rough and ready do it yourself primitive street thrash from Perth Australia. Humorous lyrics and song titles with raw youthful charm - Beer & Violence!! A low budget affair so it doesn't have bay area EXODUS / TESTAMENT style mega production with all the precision and chunk - nope this one is raw, fast and not always 100% tight but a fun listen nonetheless. The Charlie Daniels cover is very interesting, fusing heavy metal thrash with frenetic violin. Cremator were doing it in Perth Australia long before many others and this highly sought after mini LP is an ultra rare piece of Australian thrash metal history. Interesting Trivia: Drummer Russell Hopkinson mothballed his metallic double kicks & became a member of Aussie indie pop act YOU AM I.
