STRYCHNINE 'NO ESCAPE... LIVE OR DIE! 84-87' CD

Another Heavy Metal chapter from 80s Seattle... We proudly bring you STRYCHNINE "No Escape... Live Or Die! 84-87" CD! Formed in 1981 by the Lamberty brothers, Strychnine is another great example of how prolific the Washington Metal scene was at the time. With two demo tapes recorded, one 7" single released (nowadays, a quite rare and desirable item between record collectors) and a notable participation on the famous 'Metal Meltdown Volume 1' LP compilation, Strychnine delivers a puissant wrecking ball to any US Metal appraiser! Their early recordings, clearly influenced by Judas Priest's riffage, will definitely please enthusiasts of Ded Engine and early Overkill. With the 1987 'Plug The Plug' demo, Strychnine reached a new level in their sound, playing a more powerful style resembling early Heretic and Lääz Rockit!
