Broken Bones - Bonecrusher Lp 1985 Combat Core














Aesop over at Cosmic Hearse posted up the Broken Bones - Decapitated 7" today which immediately made want to listen to this Lp "Bonecrusher".While Dem Bones is definitely my favorite Broken Bones record I think they did a hell of a good job with this crossover metal punk style record as well.

Your comment at the Hearse brought me here, thanks.

I prefer this one over Dem Bones, but love both. There are moments on this that sound like a better recorded GISM, and "Death Is Imminent" is an anthem for the ages. Thanks.

The cover, hahaha, I can't breath, hahaha, how could I forget this record, with a cover like that hahahaha. Indians, you know, dude - indians - the punks of the prairies.

Meh......I'm with you Dave, "DEM BONES" is way better! This is the era of "crossover" where metal bands wanted to sound like GBH, and punk bands wanted to sound like Venom........either way, if you add too much water or Kool Aid to the mix....it just doesn't come out right and tastes kinda shitty. I'm just sayin.

I think this is probably my favorite Broken Bones record. While some of the UK bands got worse as they got more metal (Discharge, Onslaught, GBH), I think Broken Bones (and English Dogs too) actually got better...for awhile at least.

I need to revisit English Dogs. I had a few of their records back in the day but never really cared for them. I agree that Broken Bones did the metallic punk thing well and I think it's because they never completely lost their punk roots.

"Forward Into Battle" is the English Dogs record to check out. Top 5 metalpunk record probably, just a perfect mix of metal and punk in every way. I never was into their earlier punk records as much, and their later metal records were pretty boring.

Dave G said...

"Forward Into Battle" is the record I sold hahaha. I guess I was too much of a thrash metal head to appreciate the record back in the day.

Great year when you punks got into our heavier sounds (Venom, Motörhead) This and Varukers 85 Lp are great examples of this. I hate those US thräsh bands that tried to sound punk though..didn't geel at all

Old pre 86 Death metal fan!

Listen to demos of HELLHAMMER & SODOM
