EL FOSSIL: Escape from Crabhorse Island: Cassette

Jul 24, 2013

This is one of them demos that has thrash metal with surf overtones, yet another thing I remember hearing a good amount of when getting demos way back when. The playing is strong, the sound is lo-fi, and there are no vocals. The instrumental quality of this makes it much more appealing, as vocals would likely ruin it. Pretty good stuff if you are looking for some speed metal with a surf edge, or some surf with a speed metal edge. Fans of Man… or Astroman? would probably dig this, I would imagine.
