Vio-lence - Oppressing The Masses Promo Cassette 1990

Was going through the old tape box again today and pulled this bad boy out. I forgot I had it and also forgot that this promo cassette is the only version of Oppressing The Masses that has the song Torture Tactics on it as the original run of 20,000 CD's was pulled and destroyed back in the day and re-released minus this song.

I couldn't find any visual proof of this tapes existance on the web so I figured I would scan it and share it with everyone...Dave G.

Phantasm - Demo 87

I just pulled this demo out of the old demo box for the first time in 25 years, and  I'll be damned if I didn't enjoy listening to this sucker.

As most of you already know Gene Hoglan (Dark Angel etc) played drums and  Katon W. De Pena of Hirax fame sang for Phantasm, and I have to say that Katon  delivers all the vocal acrobatics you would expect and then some. The riffs are sharp, drums are pounding...hell they even throw in  a cover of SSD's Glue....Fun tape to listen to again after all these years...Dave G.

PS: When I got the tape it came without a cover, but the band gave me a bio and a separate lyric sheet.

Kickass magazine Bob Muldowney

God I loved this zine as a kid. I really felt a connection with bob's reviews and found that I could trust his taste in metal unconditionally. If Bob said something Kicked Ass then it really did. Anyway, I only have 3 issues of this  zine in my collection because after I finished devouring all the information that was packed in each issue of this great zine I would go at them with a pair of scissors and tack all the pictures to my bedroom wall. Anyway, I would love to purchase some old issues of Kickass. So if anyone out there has some old Kickass zines collecting dust and you'd like some cash please leave a comment or drop me an email...Dave G.

The only issues I have currently:

July 85 volume XXX (Kerry King on cover)
November 85 volume XXXI (Cronos on cover)
VOLUME XXXII (Lemmy on cover)
