SEDUCE • Seduce LP

Psycho-Mania Records 1985
A while back a friend sent me a link to this phenomenal website documenting Detroit rock between the years of 1980 and 1990 (I wish there was one of these for every city!), and instructed me to check out the SEDUCE page... I was sufficiently blown away, and immediately started searching for a copy of their first, independently released, self titled album. This record is what Metal is all about... it's dirty and seedy, bombastically heavy, expertly executed, and full of memorable song after memorable song. Like all great Metal bands, SEDUCE knew that a balanced mixture of Rock and Metal yields the greatest results, and this record is full of the evidence. Opener "Viper's Bite" is a headbanging masterclass, and is followed up by the menacing stomp of "Love To Hate". "Face To Face" sounds like "Shout At The Devil" era MOTLEY CRUE... 'cept heavier (and maybe even superior). You get the idea... every track is outstanding, but it's the ballady live track "The Mirror" that shows off guitarist David Black's outstanding abilities. The subtlety of his playing and his use of dynamics are truly impressive. It's disgraceful, and baffling, that SEDUCE didn't become one of the biggest bands of the 80's. Download! Download! Download! And leave a goddamn comment if you dig it (or even if you don't... but that's highly unlikely).

PS: This post is pretty pointless now, because the link is dead, and that ain't the actual album cover... but that don't change the fact that this album rules! It's just too bad that you won't get to hear it... not through me at least.

They were on Decline of Western Civilization 2: The Metal Years, the one band depicted to have "integrity."

Sorry Beast... the file was removed because there's this dude who claims that he drew the logo that's on the album cover. He's been bitching, moaning and crying since the mid-80s because he didn't get any credit on the album. Sad really, but he's the reason that the file was removed. Too bad cuz it's a really great record.

This is Zealot Crusader here, your "Arbiter of Metal" doing his share for the common wealth. Here is a Rapidshare link I found for the album. Please get it!

Be warned, none of the songs have proper ID3 tags on them, and will appear as "no artist" and "no title" when imported, but the song names will appear in the file names, and art is provided.
