NYC Mayhem - 'The Metal & Crossover Days' (DOUBLE CD)

$ 9.99

Sold Out

The very first complete NYC MAYHEM anthology ever done (and probably the last) with material compiled from their very first rehearsals to their very last studio recording, showcasing how the band went from pure super intense Metal to highly energetic Crossover. If your ears are not used to rough recordings, go fuck yourself, this is not about clean sounding stuff! This is about music, feeling and creativity, NOTHING ELSE. This low-priced DOUBLE CD set features a collage of interviews, reviews, flyers, photos & band biography. By late 1984 early 1985 in New York City, three die hard headbangers finally got their chemistry right and within a couple of months, mayhemic destruction was spread with many victims absorbing their newer poison now known as Deathcore it was time to welcome the one and only NYC MAYHEM! Instantly, numerous sessions were recorded and traded in the highly active underground tape-trading scene. Fanzines were fuckin' hot on featuring this ultra fast intense band, with this new scene in their hands literally as people were freakin' badly while listening to destructive numbers such as 'Taken By Storm', 'Adrenalin', 'Ripped To Shreds' etc. With their lineup change, the band went into a much more Hardcore direction but the Metal riffing and sheer speed were still a good part of the sound. A reasonable number of local shows were played, having in attendance people like Danny Lilker, Tom Capone and Scott Rosenfeld. Unfortunately after a year of existence this very first real Extreme Metal Hardcore band ceased to exist and the members chose to pursue other interesting careers with bands such as the Cro-Mags and Sick of It All. You always wondered when how extreme Metal was born Now you're gonna know about it and this will make you forget all the trendy shit around! HAIL THE MAYHEM! HAIL NYC MAYHEM!
