I have no idea who this is but i really dig it. It is gnarly thrashy crossover shit with big sloppy riffing guitar A-plenty! Exactly the kind os metal i love! Sort of sound alike Medieval or Black Task, thrown threw the Venom grinder with some NYHC stylings ala Sarcasm. Perfect. BUT, i have no idea who it is or how old it is. There is no info on the tape or the cover. Juding by the worn cover with no writing on it, it could be vintage 83 to 86 or it could be kids doing a modern take on the old school shitz, i really don't know. I don't even know where i got it from. I just found it in a box and was like, hey i wonder what is on here. It's only 3 songs and it's over fast but man this thing shreds. If anyone has ANY ideas who this is or when it came out feel free to leave a comment!!!!

Holy fuck are you guys in for a treat! One of the best and least known of all the Jersey bands long lost demo tape from around 1983. Some of this made its way on the the Mutha Records Stop The World 7 inch and the Buy Our Records comp New Jersey's Got It? But the real winner is the insanely rare live tracks on side 2! It is very clear this dudes did not give a fuck and that rules. They do the flipper dirge thing with ease and then thrash to the fastest blast beats years before most bands were. Just great.
I did not chop the songs up individually because to be honest the song list doesn't really seem to match what is actually on the tape and some songs just go into each other and making individual tracks was a near impossible task (ok, i'm just sorta lazy too) but shut up and and stop complaining and have at it.

Dim Mak is a death metal band from New Jersey. The band was formed from the ashes of Ripping Corpse, by guitarist Shaune Kelley, vocalist Scott Ruth, and drummer Brandon Thomas. Thomas left the band sometime after the release of Intercepting Fist to later join The Dying Light.
The band's lyrical and thematic inspirations include martial arts, Bruce Lee, human rage and violence, Lovecraft's Cthulu Mythos, battles, etc.
Pretty sure these are different mixes from the Enter The Dragon album. They sound different to me. Not sure of the year but if it's before the Enter The Dragon album has to be around 1992 or 1993.
Also, even though is says No Rope A Dope on the cover only the first 3 songs are present. Sorry....

Heavy intrumental music made by a bunch of stinky acid eating hippies from Toms River / Long Branch NJ in the early 90's. I don't know if they ever made tape covers but i don't have one. They might have just made this to give to Jacko @ The Brighton Bar / Cafe Bar to get some gigs. The tape is also kind of wonky but I'm throwing it out there anyway. Pretty twisted Frank Zappa styled heavy metal, acid rock, surf rock freakout stuff. My memory is foggy but i think Jason Silverio played drums, or maybe Jim Butler? Or was it Matt Gunverdahl??? and Joe Butler bass w/ John Butler on Guitar but i could be wrong. These 2 songs are taped over a "Toast" demo tape that was the Butler brothers other band. If anyone has any more info please drop it...

I once had a minor altercation with the singer guitar player of this band at a gig once. I was climbing on the roof of the club and he ran in and told the owner. Fucking rat... All that aside, i dig this slice if NJ noise core.

Funny story about this band and an encounter with the police i had. My old band played with these guys once and i bought a shirt from the band because i liked them. The shirt was a graphic drawing of a 3 way gay orgy and all the dudes were dressed up like cops and underneath it said "PIGS SUCK, FUCK 'EM". I got pulled over by the cops wearing said shirt and it was not a pleasant experience... Ah, to be young again.
No cover or track list for this one. If anyone has any info feel free to drop it.
