In Cold Blood - st EP (1997)
This 7" by Cleveland's In Cold Blood is the heaviest sounding stuff these guys ever recorded. I mean, I love pretty much everything this band around the Melnik brothers did, but those three songs are so hard, it's unbelievable. I think every single one appeared (rerecorded) on one of the other records they did, but on this EP the songs are played slower, and the vocals are way more brutal, like really deep, nearly gutteral. Of course you should get the Hell On Earth full length as well (the CD got released on Victory records back then, I don't know if there ever was a vinyl release) and of course the 12" that got released on A389 Records which contains the mentioned 7" besides some demo and live recordings.
