Hydra Vein - Rather Death Than False of Faith - Mean Machine Records 1988
Went to a friends a few weekends ago to hang and have a few beers , which eventually lead to me going through his record collection and happening upon this record. I mean one look at the ridiculously metal album cover and I knew I had to have this record. I asked him if we could listen to the first song and if it was good if I could borrow the record to post on the blog to which he replied if it's good you can have the record because I'll probably never listen to it again regardless. Anyway, what you get is surprisingly good straight forward thrash metal that at times brings Whiplash to mind. We had originally assumed this band was from Jersey because the record was given to my friend back in the day by a local dude and the label was based out of NY, but it turns out this band is actually from the UK, which was a surprise because UK thrash generally sucks lol....enjoy ...Dave G.
P.S. Having problems with the anti-skate on my turntable so to save time on my part I borrowed the sound files from Horrible Noise blog, please check out the excellent Horrible Noise for more amazing and extreme metal posts.
