You probably would have yep. Picked up the discography cd in the Sound Cellar about 10 years ago for a fiver,the 7" was long gone at that stage.

The albums are pretty good,worth a listen.

Imprecation drummer Ruben Elizondo has passed away due to COVID complications. A band around in the early days, and IIRC a young Jamie Grimes tape traded me some of their stuff. I had’t heard anything new since the Repulse release in 1995, so checking out some “new” stuff now.
1966-2021 RIP

Very sad to hear that, and yes Quirkey you remember correctly. That was one of the last great US demo of that era.  If I remember correctly  he wrote a lot of the music and added the creepy synth parts, so he probably wrote that riff we knocked in Drainland.

Kreator: Terrible Certainty

Rather overlooked album in their discography,

100% agreed. Absolutely ferocious album,raw and wild. I think it's their best. That,"Pleasure to Kill" then "Extreme Aggression".

this is great
Might look like a black/death metal record and has hints of that, but isn't exactly.

Jesus, I hope this isn't the end to the stage diving/injury story in the other thread.

You can scroll right for the full flyer details - July 1994 and over by 11.30 indeed.

I don’t recall the date was anything to do with Benediction visiting (year earlier mr merch man?).

That was likely  the gig where an underage Shane O’Donovan of Heresy got a hopper (broke his arm i believe) after stage diving. That’s the only injury I was ever aware of at any of those Nancy gigs.

Might be that - I've a very clear memory of some uncious lad being dragged it into the hall while a group of folks tried to figure out wether an ambulance was needed after a stage diving incident, though I though it was some fat fuck flattened him. My memory is obviously not the best haha

Did some lad get knocked out by a stage diver at the Nancy's gig or am imaging it?

That gig was fucking amazing. When was it..94?95?
Must pick that comp up. And the Maimed reissue actually.

Grabbed the new Full of Hell lp yesterday. Amazing layout.

Hambeast put out a call for writers at the start, a couple people said they were game, no content bar a Sacriligia album ever actually manifested.

Dunno about everyone else but I still have a lot if not all what I wrote. I had all the interviews up on a Wordpress site online  as I was miffed all my work had disappeared ...but to be frank, I couldn't be fucked keeping the site there any more and it seemed pointless keeping a bunch of old interviews up there in perpetuity. I didn't have any great urge to repost all the reviews. I still do a spot of reviewing for the Sleeping Shaman nowadays for the few who actually might be interested but that's about it, and I rarely review metal on there, it's more noise rock, experimental, psyche and weirder heavy bits..though I am doing Qrixkuor today so the odd time ye olde Satan's Metal gets a look in.

No idea what other writers are doing - always enjoyed Andy's stuff, always hated The Ruts' stuff (largely because he was more interested in being "provocative" than focussing on the music it seemed)..I can't even remember who else was involved by the end. Lorc had gone and I think he was doing a lot of the heavy lifting.

I really enjoyed writing about music but to be honest the MI experience kinda killed it for me, though I've no great talent for it really it was something to do, and it was exciting at times when you got something really special to write about. I really liked the "From the Vaults", though I think the only one I actually did was Decomposed, I had a few others in mind and just never got round to them. It's kind of interesting that when this site started there was all kinds of intentions but nothing actually happened. CT was always looking for new writers but there were very few willing to do so without payment, though there's plenty other more reputable sites out there who seem to rely on the " we can't pay you but it's exposure" in the way gig promoters do.

Dunno if people appreciate how much work goes into doing a decent review - imagine getting landed with an album you don't like,having to listen to it multiple times, take notes, listen to it more times to check your notes, and then try and be constructive/articulate/descriptive about it when all you want to say is "this is absolute bollocks lads", only to realise there was no point in you even reviewing it because people are just downloading it or listening to it online anyway. In spite of  still doing it, I do ultimately believe it's a pointless task 99% of the time.

Interesting. Perhaps I could pitch a podcast about the collapse of a local niche music message board to his company.

It's specifically the song lengths I found challenging. It's pretty relentless having 2 long death metal songs, and I suppose for context I listen to little to no death metal nowadays for the most part, so the density rather than the complexity is the issue for me I guess. Maybe challenging isn't the right word, perhaps "Gruelling"

Found the GM a fucking chore tbh, didn't like it at all.
