– I’ve been really enjoying & reveling in this first rate piece of
see thru blood-red vinyl. They are not terribly prolific (2 demos, 1
album and this split), in their 9 years of audio blasphemic
existence. Strychnine are a seasoned and confident band who come
across to myself as more than a little original & in strong contrast
to most of what is making the rounds these days. I would describe
Strychnine as late 80s style deathtrash (you know that period when
many thrash bands were incorporating death elements) with a slight
but note able early 90s black/death metal feel (mainly due to the
riffing). Vocalist Don has an 80s speed / thrash clean but still
dense lightly graveled delivery which is both unique and personally
pleasing. Strychnine are fucking supreme!
– Didn’t this band go under a different moniker in the early 90s?! I
may have them confused with someone else. Anyway, Lethal Prayer play
excellently riffed guttural death metal albeit a bit typical. I
really like the dark and suffocating atmosphere their music
possesses. The vocals are indecipherable, garbled & obscured
sounding which I dug a lot.
