Old School metal photos

Found a box of my old metal stuff at my parents house the other day. Nothing like finding a box full of old pictures you had completely forgotten about and then having the memories come flooding back upon seeing the images again. These are just a few of the 100's of metal photos that covered every inch of my bedroom wall when I was a kid...Dave G.



I have some vinyl for sale on Discogs. Here's a link if anyone is interested.

Le Cause - Clear Plastic Day - Emotional Records 1983

Obscure minimal synth wave band from Pennsylvania. Apparently the sleeve above is a rare alternate sleeve that looks nothing like the one you commonly see with this record. I prefer the above sleeve to the more widely used one as it fits the music better. Posting for historical purposes...Dave G.

Mad Butchers - Tales From The Menstruating Twat - demo tape 1986

Offensive tape cover, stupid song titles and NYHC tags tell you all you need to know about this tape, and also tells you exactly what the music sounds like, but if you can't figure it out I'll just say that someone really liked SOD and or Lethal Aggression and decided hey we can do that...they even have a song that clocks in at about 2 seconds. Unfortunately, they don't have the chops, vocals or production value to really pull this off.

I bet they thought this was great and funny when they released it, but as a full grown man this is a little embarrassing...Posting just to document the tapes existence as I do not see it anywhere on the internet... Dave G 

Mad Butchers hailed from Staten Island NY

Viking - Do or Die demo tape 1986

Prelude Scavenger
Do or Die


Viking followed this demo up with 2 full length Lp's "Do or Die" 1988 and "Man of Straw" 1989.

This is an excellent thrash metal demo that is a bit more raw and less polished than what you would expect from an 80's California thrash/death metal band, but it is that grit that makes this tape so's unfortunate that the bands Lp's are currently out of print. Hopefully, someone will get around to re-releasing them in the near future..Dave G.

Good quick tight straight ahead thrash metal is what you'll find on this scorching demo tape from NYC.

Deathcorps. featured a couple members who would go on to perform in much more well established bands...see below details.

The demo tape cover is a two sided insert (see pictures) with a separate photocopied lyric sheet folded inside...Dave G

The end...or just the beginning?

10/16/2012: I have decided to maybe do some more posting to Rocket Science going forward, I will not share any music (with the exception of you tube links) unless bands reach out to me and give their written permission for me to post their music. That being said if there are any old school or new school Metal bands out there who would like to be promoted through the blog, feel free to get in touch...Dave G
