I finally got a copy of this rare classic the other day and I can't say I was disappointed! Nothin' here but great riffs to go with matching lyrics that help create some of the most killer and memorable songs in metal history. "Undead" is my personal favorite, alongside "Humanoid", and I strongly advise anyone who hasn't heard it yet to get this album someway, somehow and make your ears bleeeed!

These three crazy mutha f'ers brought metal a new edge with their insane drummer Barry "THe f'in Animal" Speilberg on the skins, master guitarist and Barry's big bro, Richard Spielberg with his furious leads and the crunchiest crunchin your ears will ever hear. He also shows off his talent on a beautiful classical cover of "Le Cou Cou" along with legendary singer, song writer, and second best only to the late great Clifford Burton (R.I.P. Cliff!!!!!!!) Bob Mayo(naise!-just kiddin' Bob, I know you hate that!) on the big bad bass. Bob's vocals are like a cross between Algy Ward of Tank and Tom Araya possessed by the devil. Their final album Suicide Notes will also make the hair on the back of your head stand at attention. Huge in Europe, especially Germany, only to be screwed over by their label back in the USA. Rest in peace 'GASM!!! EVERY METALHEAD SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST FIVE COPIES OF THIS ON TAPE AND CD HIDDEN AT DIFFERENT LOCATIONS SO YOU'LL ALWAYS HAVE ONE IN YOUR POSSESSION!!!!!!!!!!!If you can find it, buy it.

I first heard this band's demo tape, named Rainbows Flowers Kittens and Puppies, when they were called Maniac. Then I saw them in a Boston dance club that featured live metal bands once a week. My right ear is still ringing (no kidding, but don't feel too sorry for me :). They changed their name to Wargasm after a dispute with another band (so I heard).
These guys play fast, complex music. The guitar riffs are amazing. The singing is kind of flat but then again, people used to complain about Metallica's vocals, too. "Revenge" and "Bullets & Blades" are some of the best loud, angry songs you'll hear. "Undead" is one of the fastest outside of Slayer. Good stuff!

A dang shame these boys didn't get the financial breaks other less talented bands have. The song Wargasm is in my opinion one of the greatest metal songs of all time. The tightness of this band is rivaled only by metallica's older classic music. Lyrics are great and the music is just incredible. Metal with a quality that makes this band easy to listen to. All Wargasm cd's are masterpieces. They are one of the most talented 3 peice bands ever. The wall of sound that they produce is stunning. Vocals fit perfect.

This is a VERY VERY VERY underrated thrash band from the late 80's early 90's! Why Play Around is one of the best albums to come from that era and actually still could hold up to any bands out there today. If your looking for a great album and like Metal and Thrash I really think your going to love this one. The remastered version sounds great and has all the liner notes from the album. Again this is a must have!!!

I first heard of these guys on a Midwest college station and thought they were awesome. I searched everywhere for the album and stumbled on it in a pawn shop about 7 years later. I gotta tell ya I was floored that these guys didn't make it big. I don't know much about them other than they ROCK! The riffs are classic speed metal heavyness, and it's hard to believe they're only a three piece. Best songs are Revenge and Wargasm, a ten minute plus opus about nuclear war from one man's point of view. Somewhat reminiscent of Megadeth's early stuff. If you can find this precious metal, I suggest you get your hands on it cause it rules. My copy is safely locked away and I'm never giving it up! HA HA HA HAAAA!!!

As soon as I heard this band, I couldn't get enough. Unique vocals, great driving riffs and adept soloing. A must for any thrash/metal fan. My favorite track is "Revenge". Listen to it, and that should be the best sample of whether or not you want this album.
