Metal Disorder - Tape Compilation 1988 or 1989













I dug this tape out from deep in the metal vault today. This compilation features 21 Thrash and Hardcore bands who were trying to make a name for themselves around 1988-89. The compilation was compiled by Metal Disorder Fanzine, and compiles some of the editors’ favorite bands who submitted demos for review in the zine. In hindsight this compilation acts as a nice snapshot of what was going on back in the pre-internet days, when compilations like this or tape trading or reading zines was the only way to find out about underground music...man I miss those days.

Hidden within this 90 minute tape you will find the following bands:

Formicide - Sanctus - Apparition - Ataxia - Cold Steel - Crypt - Valhalla - Spudmonsters - Biohazard - At All Cost - Department of Corruption - Disaster Area - Leviathen - Eviction - Methedrine - Dark Deception - Oblivion - Astoroth - Kinetic Dissent - Humanicide - Adonis.

I'd love to hear Disaster Area, they werwe from Toronto, then moved to Ohio as a Metallica cover bar band as they made a lot of monwey doing that instead of staying an indie thrash band...
