MEDIEVAL - Reign Of Terror MLP

190,00 kr
Debut MLP from this cult US act now available once again. Dubbed “the imageless band” due to their refusal to wear makeup or costumes or follow trends, labels gave Medieval a hard time. After a few independent demos in the mid 80s, followed by an appearance on Metal Massacre IV.,finally New Renaissance threw Medieval a lifeline, and out came their 1986 MLP. The label was best known perhaps for its roster of third-rate thrash acts like Anvil Bitch and Indestroy, as well as a few oddball groups like lightweight power metallers Gargoyle and Dream Death, a similarly unusual and underrated band. So what do they sound like? It’s like trying to describe Hellhammer or Venom or any of those ur-bands. Medieval have that same raw energy with their throat-shredding shrieks and growls, sloppy, breakneck riffs, and raucous cymbal abuse. Medieval have more going for them than simple raw energy, however; they have a certain sly cunning in their songwriting that keeps the listener off guard and unsure of what’s coming next.

Ltd. 350 on white/ black splatter vinyl in heavy cardboard cover with lyric sheet and poster.
