Maelstrom - step one + megamorphosis 7''




Maelstrom - step one + megamorphosis 7", USA 1989/1990
This is the superb Boston metallic hc band, not the gay-ass Russian black metal waste. Maelstrom delivered a first class bostonian blend of Suicidal Tendencies rocking metal with the late 80's funk-metal vibe. But Maelstrom are more intense and heavier bordering on thrash: "step one" is somewhat on par with the great Reanimator album "laughing", just better. Top notch sticking songs and choruses, large thrash riffs, fucking ZERRRR! I'll never get it that such an amazing band never dominated the world instead of the legions of the well decorated and makeup'd nu-metal|black metal|pantera metal maybeline adolescents.
The 7" includes a massively energetic and megazerful cover of Void's "who are you?" (yeah I'll post the Void stuff too...).
You can still buy these records from Taang!, Amazon and other distros. Do it.
Maelstrom on the legendary Taang! records page, shit they sell the CD for $6, the LP for $3 and the 7" for $2.50. Buy everything!
step one: CD rip
megamorphosis: vinyl rip
1991 Germany w/NoMeansNo + Paris w/Scat Opera yessssssssssssssssssss
