NUCLEAR ASSAULT - The Plague MLP
After spending the first few months after the release of their debut album „Game Over“ on tour, Nuclear Assault entered Music Grinder studios in Los Angeles for two months in december 1986 with producer Randy Burns to record the 6-track EP „The Plague“. The result was a mix of re-recorded demo material („The Plague“, „Cross of Iron“, „Nightmares“) and new songs („Game Over“, „Butt Fuck“, „Justice“). The record was initially supposed to be called „Cross of Iron“ and released in a cross-shaped cover artwork. But Combat Records feared negative reactions from religious organisations and objected to the idea, so that the record was finally entitled „The Plague“ and released with a post-apocalyptic cover artwork in the vein of „Game Over“. With its merciless in your face mixture of hardcore, grindcore and thrash metal „The Plague“ fits seamlessly into Nuclear Assault's discopraphy and is definetely a must-have for all thrash metal- and 80ies-maniacs!
