Hirax- 'Blasted In Bangkok' 10". Quality reissue here from crossover pioneers Hirax. Blasted In Bangkok features the songs from their original 7" as well as one track from the Spazz/Hirax split 7" that was recorded in 1984. All of the tracks have been re-mixed and re-mastered. Hirax combined an unholy collage of metal influences like Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, and Judas Priest and mixed them with the hardcore influences of Siege, Neos, and Discharge to create a furious metal hardcore attack that helped to create the crossover genera back in the mid 1980s. Classic stuff here.
