SAD IRON • Total Damnation LP

Universe Productions 1983
This album is seriously making me reconsider my statement re: the Dutch in that EXISES post from a few weeks ago. This is bargain basement Metal of the lowest order - high on youthful exuberance but completely bereft of talent, production, song writing, tuning, and brain cells. Normally any combination of these wouldn't be reason for me to dislike a band, but in the case of SAD IRON there's just way too much mediocrity crammed into this mercifully short album. If sloppy neanderthalic proto-Thrash is yer thing, then maybe you'll dig "Total Damnation", but I found nothing (save for a couple of hilariously stupid lyrics) to get excited about. "Total Waste Of Time" is more apropos... no wait, "Total Waste Of Vinyl".

the demon guy looks a hell of a lot like the one on Sepultura's "Bestial Devastation"...

Yeah you're right. Busy demon - he musta had his hands full destroying buildings in both Brazil and Holland.

I have to disagree with your assessment. While the record is not perfect. It is non wimpy and has enough youthful energy and innocence to make it worthwhile.
