The only Exploited album I owned back then was Let's Start A War, but I didn't think much of it and gave it to a friend. About 10 years ago something made we want to check out all of the Exploited albums I'd never bothered with, so I bought up all of their classics- Punk's Not Dead, Troops of Tomorrow, etc. The other day stumbled across Horror Epics and realized I'd never picked it up; "Hmm, why didn't I get this back when I grabbed the others? This was the last of their 'classics'." That has now been rectified.
I have to say, I still don't really care much for The Exploited, but at least this record stands out in their catalog. The guitars and vocals are relatively standard fare, but most of the tracks have tribal drum stylings. I hear lots of tom-toms throughout, but only occasionally what may or may not be a very oddly recorded snare. It certainly wasn't "innovative" in 1985, it sounds very similar to what Killing Joke was doing half a decade earlier. But coming from a bunch of meatheads like The Exploited, it seems positively experimental and avant-garde. It's not bad. Not great, but not bad.
indescriptibly fast paced,pounding and percussive harcore sound.Drums sound like a machine
gun,souped up with sampled loops from a rythm machine,sounding like there were 3 drummers
playing at the same time !! Guitar work is savagely furious,razor edged,a constant aural assault,full of wild solos,mixed in very loud.Bass is fast,hard and precise.Wattie's delivery
OK as usual.The sound here is well ahead its time.Don't expect any resemblance to the 2
first albums.If you want to listen to something very original,open your mind and wallet.

In 1988, on Oct. 30, was the day I first heard this album. It is now forever linked to not only great punk rock for me, but forever linked to my teen-age halloween memories. Read morePublished on August 28, 2006 by M. Myers
