Oh, where to begin? PROTECTOR were in a complete league of their own when it came to mid-80s high-speed thrash metal intensity. These guys made much more famous thrashers from the same era sound tame in comparison. PROTECTOR for me represents the pinnacle of an amazing period in heavy metal history: those few brief years from roughly '86-'90 when thrash/speed metal was getting faster and faster, more technically adept, with more brutal vocals, all ushering in the flood of classic early death metal bands. For this reason, I consider bands like PROTECTOR, MASSACRA & AGRESSOR(French death-thrashers on par with PROTECTOR for sheer brilliance), INSANITY(San Francisco), SLAUGHTER LORD(Australia), NECRODEATH(Italy), MINOTAUR(Germany), DEATH YELL(Chile), MERCILESS(Sweden), SADUS(California), SARCOFAGO(Brazil), MORBID SAINT(Illinois/Wisconsin), MORTUARY(Mexico), etc. to be "death-thrash". They were right on the cusp, playing the fastest thrash imaginable, yet incorporating innovative proto-death riffage, leads, and lyrics. PROTECTOR-"Echoes From The Past..." CD collects the three most important(and I believe best) PROTECTOR recordings spanning 1986-1988.

First off is the legendary two-song demo tape "Protector Of Death" from '86. This is one of the tape trading underground's all-time classics. Low budget(recorded at White Lines Studio), raw and rabid, but recorded with just enough smarts to qualifiy as an above average sounding studio demo. Musically, the the two tracks "Protector Of Death" and "Apocalyptic Revolution" make even the mighty "Pleasure To Kill"-era KREATOR sound kinda-tame and behind the times. PROTECTOR were the new studs on the block and had the goods to back it up!
