Speed metal hell! On that day of 1983, I bought in the same store Kill'Em'All, Court In The Act, Forged In Fire and Heavy Metal Maniac, and I have spent the past 35 years trying to figure out which one I liked the most among these legendary records - because everyone knows lists and ranks must be kept up to date. That first Exciter album is a milestone in the saga of speed metal, it is a complete masterpiece. The roughness of the production adds to the meanness of the chainsaw songs, and unstoppable headbanging ensues. This was the beginning of a new era in heavy metal - right before Show No Mercy, a step up in heaviness from Judas Priest and co. Absolute first class! The following two albums are almost better, especially the super classic Violence And Force, then up to the vicious and raging Kill After Kill they recycle with great inspiration and energy their own formula, but the established fan does not feel the breeze of novelty anymore, and then there is that amazing live release featuring all the best songs. After the mid 90s, variable line ups (which often included only the original guitarist)  released albums that were less to my liking, but I have not given these enough attention to really know. Let us concentrate on their first decade of aggression, these albums are as awesome as their artwork is horrible. Extra triplazer cult of speed metal! Long live heavy metal force and violence until everything becomes nothing!
The original trio is touring!
