Cryptic Slaughter music CDs This reissue contains bonus unreleased demos and live recordings. Far more than a simple hardcore act, Southern California's Cryptic Slaughter was arguably the ultimate speedcore band. Though age, time, and experience would eventually teach them to slow things down on occasion, their 1986 debut album, Convicted, relies almost exclusively on the dizzying speed of thrash metal. In fact, younger fans listening to these tracks for the first time may hear nothing but metal (and for all intents and purposes, that's pretty much the case on select moments like "Rest in Pain" and "Rage to Kill"), but for those who were there the first time around, what they heard on Convicted was clearly the sound of two very distinct and defined musical lines beginning to blur the lines between them. For these ancient fans, speedcore staples like "M.A.D.," "Sudden Death," "State Control," and the classic "Lowlife" represented the explosive and unprecedented collision between metal and punk: impossibly technical in metallic execution, but ever dedicated to punky political rants. Racing past in one- or two-minute bursts, these enraged anti-establishment diatribes were made all the more potent by the incredible performance of bandmembers Crooks, Evans, Nicholson, and Peterson. And in retrospect, although it was clearly not as fully realized as Cryptic Slaughter's later efforts in terms of songwriting and production, Convicted's uniquely extreme onslaught remains perhaps even more important from an influence point of view. [Relapse Records' 2003 CD reissue rewards collectors to nine delightfully noisy bonus tracks: five from a demo cut in 1985 and four additional tracks recorded at a live show in Houston during 1988.] ~ Eduardo Rivadavia Cryptic Slaughter: Bill Crooks (vocals); Les Evans (guitar); Rob "Blasko" Nicholson (bass, background vocals); Scott Peterson (drums).

Cryptic Slaughter discography Alongside other pioneering crossover acts like New York's S.O.D., Texas' D.R.I., and fellow Californians Suicidal Tendencies, Santa Monica's Cryptic Slaughter was influenced in equal parts by the lessons of political punk rock and no-holds-barred thrash metal. On its 1986 debut, Convicted, the quartet had opened a significant door, pushing hardcore into realms of sheer speed and furious hatred it had only flirted with in the past. So how in hell were they supposed to top this unbelievably crude but crucial document? Well, longtime fans will always bicker over favorites, but there seems to exist a split decision between that landmark first effort and its ...
