First 25 copies of this transparent white vinyl version, will get a special A2 size TANTRUM poster. -SOLD OUT-
TANTRUM from New Jersey, had been one of the most qualitative heavy metal bands in the history of 80's metal. They released just 4 songs on vinyl back in 1986 on their legendary EP that was released without a cover artwork, that gained them immortal status among the underground metal circuit. Their main songwriter and guitar player John Riccio wrote some killer riffs and displayed a great variety in musicianship and along with the powerful singing of Chuck Bird, they marked their status forever in the 80's metal hall of fame along with their label mates at the time HEATHEN'S RAGE. Get ready to listen to cult classics such as "Shot For Shot", "Call Of The Beast", "War Games", "Backs To The Wall", "Solid Seven" etc. Forever HAIL!!!
This LP edition comes with original fantasy artwork, biography, interview with John Riccio, cult photos of the band and lyrics. Limited to 100 copies.
This band was formed during the 1977 in Toronto, Ontario. Rapid Tears has always been ahead of their time, offering up a good mix of rock and early metal, influenced by NWOBHM, that hasn’t lost any of its punch with the passage of time. These guys weren't afraid of playing fast, with an alarmingly crude production that gives it a dose of credibility and proves these guys had studied their British counterparts well. Songs like the fast opener "Survival", the anthem "Headbang", the epic "Tomorrow" and the hard rock influences of "Keep Runnin'", worth listening to. The American heavy metal passes here too.
