Black Task: S/T 12"
Reissue of this rare slice of primitive thrash metal from Philadelphia... the a-side is the original giga-rare 12" EP, while the b-side has another early demo. This is just RAGING stuff... it's definitely metal with its vaguely early Hetfield-esque vocals and shredding guitar solos, but the energy and rawness sound more like early 80s hardcore. It kind of sounds like early Metallica, metal-era Dr. Know, and first LP-era Venom all thrown in a blender set to its maximum possible speed and destructive force. An absolutely blistering record... very highly recommended.
