Editorial Reviews

This crushing two CD collection from seminal Florida underground Metal heroes Raped Ape is a special limited edition package featuring 28 songs and seven video clips spanning the band's entire run, from 1988 to 1996. It celebrates the 20th anniversary of the acclaimed Terminal Reality EP, the only previous CD released under the Raped Ape name. Land of Broken Promises includes Terminal Reality plus four of the band's classic demo tape recordings - Perpetual Aggravation (1990), Lost In Mind (1991), Raped Ape (1994), and Paingod (1995). The enhanced second disc also features seven live videos of the band tearing up stages in South Florida during their heyday.

Format: Audio CD
The Florida metal scene in the late `80s and early `90s is best known - and rightly so - for death metal bands like Obituary, Death and Cynic, but there were some noteworthy thrash bands operating at the time, one of which was Raped Ape. The band played thrash metal not too far removed from bands like Overkill, Testament and Exodus, but with a noticeably heavier, more aggressive bent. It probably wasn't possible for a thrash band to operate during the Florida death metal heyday without some of that scene's energy bleeding into your own sound. Still, there are times when the sheer heaviness of the rhythms or the harsher vocals will have you doing a double take. This definitely isn't "thrash by numbers" like so many other thrash bands of the time. Raped Ape was about as heavy as thrash gets, and they had an intensity that just bursts off the discs, even all these years later. Raped Ape released just one EP - 1992's Terminal Reality before changing their name to Paingod for a lone Century Media release, but there were some very impressive demos recorded between those two releases.

Released in time for the 20th anniversary of Terminal Reality, Divebomb's new collection Land of Broken Promises collects a hefty amount of vintage Raped Ape material in one very impressive two-disc set. It includes the Terminal Reality EP as well as four of the band's demo releases, dating from before Terminal Reality right up to when they became Paingod. This includes 1990's 6-song Perpetual Aggression demo, 1991's 6-song Lost in Mind demo, 1994's 4-song The Stuck demo and 1995's Paingod demo. All of the material has been newly remastered by Jamie King.
