DBC


Dead Brain Cells, 1987
Universe + Dead Brain Cells, 1989
Unreleased, 1991/2002
Montreal's best answer to Slayer! Amazing 80s speed & thrash metal! Unreleased is a great mix of the style of the two earlier albums, maybe not as intense or inspired. The second release has a more technical / Voïvod edge, while Dead Brain Cells is the prototype of classic skull bashing thrash metal. Two totally killer classic records!!!! People of the 80s awake and bang your head until you're all brain dead!
CD rip. RIP Gerry Ouellette (guitars).

Speaking of the 80s, we just spent a week-end in 1985. Thanks to the iron longevity of the heavy metal scene, we just had the infinite privilege to attend a Vulcain show!!! ROCK'N'ROLL SECOURS!!!! 30 ans plus tard, Vulcain sont toujours les plus forts! Ne pas aller voir un concert de Vulcain est une faiblesse impardonnable. Grand moment de nostalgie pour les plus arthritiques d'entre nous (la dernière fois que je les ai vus, c'était en 86 près de Dijon et c'est pendant le voyage en voiture que Roger est né!)! Meilleur show hard rock depuis Exciter (Beehler) l'an dernier! TOP MEGA ZERRRRRRRR!R!R!R!R!R !R!R! R! R! R! !R! R! R! !R !R !! ! VULCAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rock'n'roll secours!

Arrête de penser à l'amûr!



And yesterday we got to watch... CELTIC FROST!!! Yo, Triptykon actually, but close your eyes and just submit to Procreation Of The Wicked and Dethroned Emperor and it's all 1985 again - not to undermine Triptykon's own material which is as excruciatingly doom and deadly as anything else on this planet and the bass player is more fun to watch than Martin Ain (somebody pass me a frog) - actually this was the best and most intense DOOM show I've seen in years. Pure gravity and death!!! The speed of darkness!!!

PROCREATION

OF THE WICKED!


And a special batch of thanks to the crowd at both shows. You could have taken a series of photos to print in the October '85 issue of Metal Hammer along the Anthrax/Overkill/Agent Steel tour report.

  1. Anthrax/Overkill/Agent Steel Metal Hammer Roadshow was in 1986, not 1985. I was there :-)

  3. That's exactly the DVD of the show where I've been (in Bochum). I know the video, unfortunately I couldn't find me in the audience.

    But I found another video on YouTube of the Lethal Aggression show in 1989 (with Youth Of Today) where you can see me at 1.05-1:07, 1:43-1:46 and 1:55-1:57 (Long hair, 19 years old)
